Movember: No Shave November Should Be For All of the Months

As KSSU’s Beard Aficionado, I fully support the Movember cause. What is Movember, you ask? How much is rent under that rock you live under, I ask. Just kidding. Movember is an amazing time of year when men forgo shaving their faces to promote awareness for prostate cancer and other male cancers. Some women hate this time of month because they have an inexplicable aversion to sexiness, but I love Movember and all it’s mustache-y glory, and I also love that a charity for for cancer awareness came up with the idea. I argue more men, though, should forgo shaving for the entire year, and not just November.

Now, I realize not every guy can grow a good mustache or beard. In fact, a lot of men try and just can’t do it. Case in point:

In this case, Beth is wrong.

But if a guy can grow a good one, he should! Especially for great cause like prostate cancer awareness. Here are some examples of excellent, magnificent beards and mustaches:

Giant’s pitcher Brian Wilson can pitch into my glove anytime as long as he’s got that beard.

Common sports a very nice beard, indeed.

Zac Brown’s beard frames his babyface perfectly.

Nick Offerman’s mustache is legendary.

Freddy Mercury’s mustache is a perfect example of a great ‘stache.

Beards and mustaches can make a man look distinguished and sexy. A nice, full beard is rare, and if a man can grow one, why save it just for Movember? Promoting cancer awareness can also turn into a year-round event! A win-win for everyone!

I’m sorry, I just can’t stop staring…
