It’s November 1, which means that you either spent last night with someone sporting a “totally hilarious and unique” costume and are feeling the aftershock of going out on a Wednesday. Or you stayed home, turned off the front porch light and ate all the candy that was supposed to be for little kids.
Those are the only two options.
Either way, you’re probably dragging a little today. If you’re a guy, that means you didn’t feel like shaving. Lucky for you, there’s a perfect excuse for ditching your razor this month.
Guys, it’s time to work on your upper lip plumage, your dirt squirrel, your flavor savor.

Movember is a movement dedicated to raising money and support for prostate and testicular cancer initiatives through robust mustaches. Simply put, a dude pledges to grow a soup strainer for the month, and people donate money in his name under his profile page on Movember.com.
In the spirit of equal opportunity, female philanthropists also can throw their names in the ring to compel others to donate. Prostate and testicular cancer might only happen to guys, but loved ones and friends feel the effects, regardless of what they’ve got going on down there.
So, even if you don’t feel like making the commitment to growing out your misplaced eyebrow, a donation never hurts. My money is going to my freshman roommate, Neil Gustafson, who beat the shit out of testicular cancer in college. If you want to donate and don’t know where to put your money, Neil would be much obliged to take it on his page.
Maybe you need more convincing. Up top, you’ll see a PSA by classically trained actor Nick Offerman on how to cultivate a premium lip rug. The man knows what he’s talking about. His mustache was once the dictator of a small Caribbean island.
