Lovely word, right? It slides off your tongue like a pat of warm butter gliding across a pancake. Such grace, such beauty, such gentleness. And the object itself? Gracing the lip of a random passerby and quietly announcing “Hello there friend. If you need me to tame a wild animal with nothing but my bare hands and my ferocious resolve, just let me know.”? It’s majestic.
So, yeah, you could say that we’re fans. (I mean, have you seen these glasses?) Naturally, that makes us fans of Movember as well.
For those of you who don’t know, Movember is the global charity movement that calls for men to grow and groom moustaches for the month of November.
Why moustaches? Because moustaches bring people together. They start conversations. When people see a big, brazen ‘stache chilling out on someone’s lip, they just have to say something about it. And then it’s, “Oh my moustache? Yeah, thanks, I’m growing it to help raise the profile of men’s health. On average, men die five years younger than women and for whatever reason, they’re also less likely to acknowledge that routinely going to the doctor and being a proactive caretaker of one’s own health is a good idea.” Boom. Seed of change planted.
So in the words of KegWorks Movember team founder Brad McRae (the gentleman in the “stylish” sunglasses below): “Hey, we definitely need to do Movember.” Yes, we do Brad. Yes, we do. Below is our group shot and an individual moustache shot for each participant. Of course you’ll see a wide variety of ‘staches, ranging from barely there to “Is that a moustache or a dead caribou?” But you know what else you’ll see? A bunch of dudes committed to doing something good. I think that’s something we can all get behind.
