Movember stupidity

Can someone explain to me exactly how growing a moustache for thirty days contributes to anything other than facial hair that looks childish and ridiculous? The majority of men complain about it, can’t wait to shave it off, and have absolutely no desire to do it again–unless, of course, they’re a public figure attempting to curry favour with the television station they work for. Naturally, the station likes to have people thinking that they’re relevant and contributing to society–by having their male on-air windbags grow hair.

Movember. It has to be the stupidest prank on men ever perpetrated.

  1. I suspect that somewhere, somehow, “some man” was feeling left out after viewing numerous news reports of a women’s cancer run or something similar. He felt sure that men needed an outlet too, thus Movember. Given my sense of humor, I’d have loved to have come up with the idea. I’d now be sitting back and laughing at the silliness of it all as it went out of control.

    I’m not making light of anyone’s cancer. I just find the whole Movember thing a rather silly way to publicize it on behalf of men.

    I kid you not: “On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery.
    […]
    At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Part├ęs held around the world by Movember, for Movember.”

    I’m not sure where the “Mo Sistas” grow their moustaches.

  2. It supposedly raises awareness for prostate cancer.

    No, I have no idea where the connection between the two is, and to be honest, I’m not 100% sure I want to know.
