Move Over Pudsy......

For the charity Movember, (a portmanteau of the words 'moustache' and 'November') that originated in Australia, my two son's are helping fight prostate and other cancers facing men, by being scruffy little gits. For the whole of November they are not gonna shave under their noses. Hormonally, the younger one is only 16 and shouldn't need to shave. It wasn't so long ago he was still playing with his Action Man squad. They now sport Barbie clothes whenever I babysit the niece. There is nothing wrong with transvestism or gay play in childrens development these days.

Anyhow, back to the absence of hairs on their chinny-chin-chins to jaggy philtrums. PrettyBoy's university's follicle-ridden scrawny imports are mostly all joining in. (So could some of the girls, apparently.)They must start the month clean-shaven and let nature and eventually fibre putty, take it's course. The more ridiculous the 'tache, the better. Gingernut (who's bottle blonde in the pic) grows his body hair at a rate 4 times quicker than his brother's, so by Dec 1st he'd be like Grizzly Adam's if he left that chin alone.

To help boost the donations, PrettyBoy is getting his band Casino's (you know - the band every other band fucking hate) front man, Telfer, (who's a stylist - hair not clothes!) to dye his 'tache black and give it 70's handle-bar extensions for the final snap.

In ridiculous anticipation of how they or others may look they dipped my make up bag and mascara'd their tache's and present facial hair before the big shave. Here's the result........GingerNut looking cheeky, PrettyBoy looking glaikit and both looking for a healthy future as they continue to sprout!

Hmm....mascara on mustache. I must say, very creative. :)

Haha, it's nice to see that your boys are leaving facial hair for a cause!

Very fine efforts

Dani - PrettyBoy has been stuck into my make-up box more than his sister over the years....!

Gwen - It's great when kids make the effort. They'll be very different from this pic by 1st Dec....I can't wait for the snaps.

I love Movember! I'm fully intending to get some fake 'staches for my upper lip. Handlebars FTW!

It seems you get scumbags everywhere, but then heroes who make you glad to share the same earth as them.

Good luck for the rest of the month with the scruffy facial hairs. *Shudders* There is more than one reason why I took the month off work! XD

Thanks Peridot - the guys do have a personal reason to go for this, too, as their brother-in-law had testicular cancer at 26. Healthy now, but you can't take your health for granted.

ps....they are occasional scumbags, but not that often...
