Default The Official DStv On Demand Movember thread

In this section of the forum, you're lucky enough to have moi as a moderator and I don't like being serious ALL the time.

So, I've decided to declare this the official Forum Movember thread and invite any forumites who wants to participate in Movember to post their progress here.

In case you don't know what Movember is or what it's about, here's a quick little summary:

http://za.movember.com/

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for menís health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

Ladies, we know you can't get involved, by growing mos, (unless you want to draw a progressively larger mo on your top lip every week...? Just a suggestion )

The rules:
- You have to start 1 November 2011 with a clean face (no facial hair at all, that means no beard too).
- You have to grow a moustache - no bokkies allowed
- To keep this relevant to the cause, I want everyone to make a donation to the foundation via their website (http://za.movember.com/). I can't police this, but I'll trust your word that you have donated something
- You need to post a pic of you sand facial hair tomorrow, and then one every monday until the end of November
- We'll get the ladies to vote on the winner (anyone want to volunteer?)
- I don't have prizes (I'll ask if I can get one) but for now your prize will be admiraiton and respect for good sportsmanship
- Trolling will NOT be tolerated and I will have you banned if you troll this thread.
- This is for fun so have fun.

So...who's in?



MC Nic.

Default Day 1 - let the games begin!

So, this is the first time in eight years that I haven't had any form of facial hair. I usually have a little bokkie on my chin in case you don't know.

I had to wrestle my razor away from my wife last night but afterwards she looked at me and said: "Wow, you look so young".

Maybe this look will stay

Come on people let's see pics!

Nice on MC Nic. No way that I'm growing facial hair (not that I think I could even if I wanted to!) But will provide moral support and perhaps a bit of assistance with prizes (ahem, let's chat Nic)

So, c'mon guys, unleash your inner Tom Selleck!

Default How to speed-up one's MO growth

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At a huge risk of being banned for trolling: A well-documented aid to

expedite the growth of a 'heavy' moustache is the twice-daily

applications of grease (multi-purpose) to the inside of the upper lip

and chicken manure (Farmer Brown's will do) to the external part of

the upper lip. I haven't tried this combo myself but legend has it that

the grease 'pushes' the hair from the inside whilst the chicken

manure 'pulls' the hair from the outside! No mention was made of

any quarantine protocols! - -

*herp*

Not to mention the negative effect this method would have on social conventions like...oh., I don't know... PERSONAL HYGIENE...

I don't know about you...but bird flu ain't on my list of "things to contract before I die".
