the return of the moustache

I don’t know how long ‘movember’ has been around, several years I suspect. But this was the first year it caught my attention. It seems to be getting rather popular. If I was the CEO of Gillette I’d be concerned. Yes it’s for a good cause, as they say, but I didn’t hear much about the money being raised or what it was being raised for. Mostly I just saw a whole lot of images of guys with moustaches who were not necessarily best suited to be sporting moustaches. Like V8 Supercar driver Craig Lowndes here:

Maybe they should be shut away for a month before november so that they can look half decent when it kicks off.  But anyway, I’m wondering how many guys participated in the month long facial hair experiment then decided they liked it and won’t go back. Is this this the beginning of the moustache renaissance? Even James Courtney <a href=”!/JCourtney01/media/slideshow?″>here</a> could pull off an _Airport ’75_ moustache if he left it another month.
