OK, let's talk about it. The elephant in the room- Movember.We've all seen those beards (or clean-shaven faces) turn into moustaches on the men's faces (possibly some of the women's too... just taking a month off from waxing?) And let's be honest, most men don't improve their appearance with a moustache. This isn't 1976. And those women who claim to love Movember...who are you trying to impress? Seriously, it's got to be someone...
I think we can all agree, the idea of raising awareness and money for men's cancers is fantastic, but do we really need to don lip sweaters? Many people aren't aware of all the different moustaches that exist... let me help you with this website which is a really good example of types of moustaches, and what men think they look like, versus what they actually look like.

Last year Brandon didn't participate in the terribly unfortunate "holiday" of Movember because he was involved in job interviews. This year he's got a job...and a moustache. It didn't start as a moustache however. At first it was a beard. And what a beard it was!

Thanksgiving, but could also pass for Brandon's whaling application
Halloween- he was a lumber jack, because it's the only thing that made sense
Do you see that thing? It took over his face. So, close to the end of October, he decided to shave the beard (breaking a Mo' Bro rule) into a moustache. And in typical Brandon fashion it had to make a statement.

This picture is a bit blurry but the only evidence I have of his handlebar moustache
This was no ordinary moustache folks! This was a full-on horseshoe moustache! Reaching all the way down to the sides of his chin. Does it remind you of anyone? (besides his dad?)

 You may have gone with Hulk Hogan...
Or possibly even John Travolta...?

But as soon as I saw it, I knew what Brandon was going for...
The Lorax!!

Right, Brandon? ... Brandon? Hmmmm, seems not.

That horsehoe only lasted a couple of weeks though before shit got serious! And by serious, I just mean into a regular kind of moustache. This is where we're at now.
This also happens to be Brandon's "I've got a moustache" expression. Fitting.
Movember has become a wide-spread event, perhaps even bordering on being added into the dictionary like other slang/made-up words have been known to do? It's obvious I can't fight it. My revolution I organized died out years ago, so if you can't beat 'em, join 'em right?

Waldo was inspired to don a moustache for at least a day or so in November, to show his support. And if you don't have a tattoo to draw on, why not give this a shot?

So there you have it folks, the story of Brandon's Movember support and alternatives for those who don't want to, or can't, grow a moustache. Don't say I've never been helpful.
