The Canadian Soup Strainer

Another successful Movember has come and gone. Men all over the world spent the last month growing out the hair on their upper lip to help raise awareness and donations for prostate cancer.

The totals from registered donations have been tallied at the Movemeber.com website and Canada has come out on top.

Donating over 19 million, Canadian companies and private citizens have shown their support for finding a cure for prostate cancer by opening up their pocketbooks.

Canada also had the most registered mustaches; 118, 727 of them. The single greatest haul by a corporation was CIBC. The banking firm was able to raise $251,356 towards the cause.

Well done Canada.

And thank you ladies, for putting up with all that extra facial hair.

If your man has become too attached to his lip warmer, it may be time to offer a few suggestions, verbally or with props.

Simmons suggests leaving his razor in the toothbrush holder as a subtle hint.

If that doesn’t work, try telling him how cute you thought it was that Justin Bieber grew one as well.

Still no effect? Bring out the big guns. Stop shaving your legs.

It’s for a good cause.

Congratulations once again Canada. You rocked those crumbcatchers!

Movember

The Bandit

Walking the streets this month, you may notice a few more Burt Reynolds impersonators than normal. No, it’s not the thirtieth anniversary of Smokey and the Bandit (well it might be…probably should look that up), no, it’s the return of Movember. It is the time of year when men across the globe let their upper lip go untamed for a good cause.

The idea is simple, 30 days to grow a moustache and promote awareness for men’s health. Sponsorship is appreciated. Funds collected go to helping fight prostate cancer.

The idea was first started in 2003. Although no money was raised that first year, the men behind the movement were inspired by the women around them who had done so much for breast cancer. The men decided to attach their facial fodder to the cancer fight and Movember became an official event.

Last year Canadians raised 7.8 million during the Movember campaign.

Let’s try and break that this year. Support your hubbies pencil thin stache, persuade a family member to join and encourage that cute guy at the office to let his inner Tom Selleck out.

Register your moustache at Movember Canada.

(Apparently we missed the Smokey thirtieth by three years)
