Movember mo bro

This year I am doing the "mo bro" thing for the month of November having been inspired by the very sexy advertising campaign and its key issue of helping raise awareness of prostrate cancer and male depression. I like the late 19th, early 20th century walrus style but have no hope of achieving one of those in thirty days. Needless to say I will end up looking like a member of the Village People especially if I wear a plaid shirt.
The funniest comment on the moustache was in the Pedro Almodovar film Kika when the character of Juana played by the extraordinary Rossy de Palma said that they made men look homosexual or fascist or both.
