MOvember: Day Twenty Six

“Missed a bit…”

Wow! Day twenty-two. I have had a MOustache now for almost a whole month. And with only four days left of MOvember, I have become rather attached to the hairy caterpillar squatting underneath my nose.

Still, for the next few days I will keep raising awareness and proudly sport my MO loud and proud.

 

MOustaches in the news

By Sky NEWS

Up to 100,000 people are expected on the streets of Wellington on Wednesday for the world premiere of director Peter Jackson’s long-awaited epic The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Hobbit fever (which will display a huge amount of facial hair thanks to Thorin’s company of dwarves) has seized New Zealand ahead of the premiere and the capital is dotted with giant sculptures of key characters such as Gandalf and Bilbo Baggins.

Their faces are on office blocks and have been plastered on everything from coins and stamps to the side of an Air New Zealand plane.

 

Useless facts about MOustaches

The largest beard and moustache championship involved 462 participants and was organised by the Newport Winter Carnival (USA), in Newport, NH, USA, on 12 February 2011. The overall winner of the competition was Steve Lucas (USA), who was chosen by the judges as having the “Grand Stache”.

Famous MOustaches

Martin Luther King, Jr born on the 15 January 1929 is an African-American who played a vital role in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience. Marin Luther King, Jr was assassinated on the 4 April 1968 and less than a decade after his death was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Congressional Gold Medal in 2004.

King sported a kind of fuller pencil/smart chevron type of MOustache, thick and wide, usually covering the top of the upper lip narrow but closely clipped.
