November is Movember when we all should celebrate the moustache, the “mo”. This is an annual event not only to grow a mo, but to raise awareness of men’s health issues. A special organisation, the Movember Foundation (see www.movember.com), has raised $837 million since 2003 and funded 1,200 projects in more than 20 countries, according to the entry “Movember” on Wikipedia. Movember started in Australia, where a group of men came up with the idea already in 1999, in a pub, of course.
HTBS has tried to raise awareness about the Mo-Movement a few times over the years by publishing some images of some handsome rowing chaps and their mos.
Here are some elegant rowing mos…
It has become a tradition that I end these Movember articles on HTBS by quoting myself from an older entry from HTBS. There I wrote:
Although, I wholeheartedly support a campaign like this, my dear wife, Mrs. B., made it clear already when we dated […] in the mid-1990s that our relationship would never last if I grow a moustache, or any other facial hair. Then, on top of that, a couple of years ago, our cute children could not stop laughing when I showed them my old Swedish driver’s license from the beginning of the 1980s, showing me with my elegant ‘Mo’.
