Image via WikipediaLast year was the first time I had ever heard of 'Movember'. I posted about it here (click on that link to watch a funny Movember video), and am proud to support the cause.
Movember is all about growing a mustache to show your support of Prostate Cancer awareness and research to find a cure. One commenter on another site asked what ribbon men get for Movember, since women get a pink ribbon for the Breast Cancer cause. Another commenter replied the mustache was their ribbon.
I am not going to grow my mustache for the cause (sorry guys), but I will support the cause in other ways.
This blog post from Nico at AlfajOr.com gives some interesting information about Movember - and is the source of the 'ribbon' comment.
