November is Movember now, in which men grow their moustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues.
By encouraging men (whom the charity refers to as “Mo Bros”) to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
This got me thinking of some men who rocked the moustache without looking like complete douches.
Who could forget the moustaches of Billy Dee Williams, Hulk Hogan and Walter Cronkite?
If you think these moustaches were cool, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
