First of all, for those who didn’t get the memo on “Movember,” here’s the deal: For the entire month of November, men around the world are encouraged to grow moustaches as a symbolic gesture to raise money and awareness about health issues specific to men, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, etc. This pro-men’s health movement started in 2003, and has been growing in popularity and virality ever since.
