Cause if it's pretty fast, you still have time to get your mo on for Movember. Mo is Australian for moustache, and Movember is an organization that raises awareness and funds for prostate and testicular cancer. Much like the Avon 3-day walk or the AIDS Walk, men build teams and throughout the month of November, vigorously sit, wait, and grow, all while collecting money towards cancer research.

In other words, it's the man of leisure's way to help out. And in addition to working to fight cancer, the man with the best mo has a shot at winning the highly coveted title of Man of Movember.
