MOvember: Day Four

‘Country Kitsch’

Day four of my hairy adventure and after spending the first two days of MOvember at work experience I am now able to enjoy the rest of the weekend and sport my MO on day four with pride.

So far there hasn’t been too much progress made but my MO is well on its way to keeping me warmer over these coming Winter months.

Day two I almost lost my newly found hairier manhood when I completely forgot to avoid shaving my upper lip and almost removed the right side of my MO. It was one of the most scariest moments of my life – thank god it was only day two and not day twenty-two.

 

MOustaches in the News

By BBC News

A father and son have grown a giant grass moustache in a Somerset field to support men’s health charity Movember.

John Gilbert came up with the idea and his son William grew the moustache, which measures 120ft (37m) by 40ft (12m).

It was shaped using an agricultural mower then trimmed with a strimmer.

It was grown in a field near Wedmore where grass was being grown for silage.

“We began with a scale drawing and then marked the area out with fencing stakes,” said William Gilbert, managing director of British Seed Houses Limited.

“We then mowed it into shape using an agricultural mower and did the final trimming with a strimmer. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked out.”
