Again, we caution those with bladder control issues, as this posting does contain a photograph of my Movember moustache at 30 days’ cultivation.
There have been a few questions in the mail bag on this particular example of the facial floral arts that we will attempt to answer.
First from Betty Windsor, SW1:
My good man, are you daft? No ma’am, I’m not daft, but I did grow it to support Men’s Health for Movember. We raised a touch over $600 to support a worthwhile charity. That would be 414 pounds and 34 ounces or 483.49 Euros. Please say hello to the corgis for me.
From E Presley in Grand Rapids, MI:
Izzafineone y’all got on. Whachacallit? I call it a moustache, but some days I call it “Bad Henry” How is the job at the Burger King anyways?
From A Nonymous, location unknown:
You have the sartorial style of a blind retardate and a facial structure that shows you have been hit with the ugly shovel repeatedly. Why are you inflicting this visage on innocents? Because I can Mr. Vidal. Unlike you, I am alive in every way possible, whist you are merely dead. Quite a mundane accomplishment I might add, being dead. Very common and very much like you.
From Nkumbe Okomo, Bank of Nigeria, Lomo, Togo:
Mister Smeeth please to be accepting our offer of $18 million dollars US currency for the expatriation of the reserves intestate of your relative Estes Smeeth from the Receiver General Bank of Nigeria, Lomo, Togo, for your Moustage: If I understand your missive, then you are donating money to me? I regret that I cannot accept your kind offer.
From Stoner Bob near the convenience store:
No, seriously duude, whaat kind of ‘stache is that? It totally pins the awsomeness meter like right up to eleven maan! Thanks Stoner Bob. It’s a hybrid Teutel Senior – Hyneman that came in nicely at 30 days. With another two months of growth and a five gallon drum of “Just For Men” in black, it would totally score!
From J. Stewart, somewhere in Scotland:
Although it is a fine day for moustache growing, do you find the aerodynamic effects of the facial winglets affect your straight line speed on the Mulsanne straight? A fair question Sir Jackie, but we only found a few points of increased drag from the moustache. There were two days of testing this week, on the O-Train platform at Greenboro, where you would occasionally feel cross-wind drift from the follicles, but the boffins in the wind tunnel assure us that the drag is more than compensated with increased downforce at Arnage under braking. Plus, I wear a full-face helmet.
From Major Amos B. Hoople, Boarding House Way
Fap! Awp! Kaff! We are taking your somewhat cartoonish onomatopoeia as admiration for the moustache. Coming from a personage august enough to rock the fez, it is a fine compliment. Thank you. Compliments to Martha as well as Clyde, Mack and Buster.
From The Gumby Family, Walthamshire, Kent
Eiii-aie, By gum, there’s troubles up t’mill! Oh, hullo. My brain hurts! We suspect this missive was misdirected, as the attached photos illustrated a family of uncertain lineage, all wearing Fair Isle sweaters, gumboots and knotted handkerchiefs as head gear, standing in front of a fish and chip shop somewhere in the Algarve. The youngest is clutching a stuffed toy prawn on a stick.
From Anthony S., address unknown:
You know da ting wid da guy from dat udder ting? He’s the guy what says it’s good, for the other ting. Your message is somewhat cryptic, but we’ll consider it a positive endorsement.
From Mercey, “Windows” Security Support (by phone)

From Mason Baveux, The 905:
Not bad lad. I’s especially liked the writin’on takin’ one for the team in the tube. Good hockey that! Thanks Mason. Much appreciated that you took the empties back and donated them to Movember.
From M Scott, Ottawa.
Much better! Yes, I shaved it off . You are welcome dear. Thank you for letting and encouraging me to participate in Movember.
