{November 18, 2010}   Movember

Have you noticed there’s a lot of people going round with a moustache right now? Well I started noticing this phenomenon last year, and thought it must be some kind of Edwardian retro vibe, y’know, expecting people to suddenly produce a tin of snuff and start talking about Great Britain’s chances in the 1908 Olympics.

But no, the moustache thing is all because of Movember -according to their UK website, Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st  clean shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month.  The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men.  Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.

With £26 million raised worldwide, it’s a bit of a phenomenon. Or should that be phenomonon?
