Remember, Remember The Tash For Movember.

Gentlemen of the world, it’s that time of the year again where we must don the old lip tickler and show our support for the fantastic, Movember Foundation. Yes there are risks – your wispy slither of nose bush could have a detrimental effect on any relationship you hold dear – perhaps turn your pets against you. However, with the right combination of will power, hormones and all round commitment to the cause, you’ll find a majestic, hairy steed, trotting gracefully along your upper lip. It’s the must-have facial accessory you never even knew you had…

Some of the greatest men of all time have donned their own fury friend – which begs the question: does the man maketh the moustache, or does the moustache maketh the man? Albert Einstein, Salvador Dali, Charlie Chaplin, Hulk Hogan, THE PRINGLES MAN…All sported a first class tash. Coincidence? We think not. Now that the pep talk is out of the way, it’s time for us to answer any questions you may have. Since this is a blog and not one of those annoying live facebook videos, we’re going to go right ahead and assume you would’ve asked us the following…

How long, in a measurement of sausage rolls, is the longest moustache of all time?

The longest tash ever grown was by an Indian chap by the name of Ram Singh Chaunhan, and comes in at a whopping 14 foot long – to answer your question that’s 28 and a half gluten-free sausage rolls end-to-end. Not bad at all!

How much liquid can I expect to hold in my moustache?

The average 28-day-old moustache is capable of holding 30ml of easy-flowing liquids such as beer or wine, fantastic for any spillages. Thicker moustaches may also be capable of holding onto more viscous substances such as gravy or yogurt. Handy if you’re lacking plate space!

I’m about to begin the growth of my Crumb Catcher. How soon will I see results?

The average human hair grows at a rate of 0.014 inches a day, or about 5 or 6 inches a year. That means you’d better get a move on…

On a serious note, Movember is for a truly great cause, raising a boat load of money for a number of men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Personally we’re very much looking forward to seeing some of the men around the office sporting face furniture; however, there are a number of other ways you can get involved.

Have a great Movember everyone!
