Manliness on the web

A friend of mine pointed me toward http://wikimancode.com/ which I think is a stellar idea and worth mentioning on this site.

Essentially the mancode wiki, is a wiki for all the rules and regulations of being a man. We all know there are many unspoken laws and rules that are handed down to you silently when you first receive your penis. However some of these subtle laws are lost on some men and women, and thus we should as a group continue to add and grow this resource so that many of the awkward man moments can be eradicated from this earth.

Screw climate change, this is an issue worth supporting

Movember

All men stand up and rejoice, Movember is once again upon us. What is Movember I hear you ask? Well Movember is the month formally known as November, the month when all men can revel in the manliness of their facial hair. I know for

real men like myself in reality Movember holds no real significance, since I already sport a manly butch tash that would make even Merve Hughes and David Boon quiver and cower it’s site.

However what is different about Movember is that we can get recognised for doing it, raise some “tash cash” for charity. The whole month is essentially a charity to highlight male health issues and also to sport a killer 70’s and 80’s tash to be proud of, but there are rules to follow.

THE RULES
1. Once registered, each Mo Bro must begin on the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven visage. Five-o’clock shadows at 10 am are considered ‘false starts.’ (participants will have to take their own ones and mail them no later than 11am on the 1st)
2. Each gentleman’s moustache must, through the entire month of Movember, adhere to the following guidelines:
a. At no time shall the aforementioned ‘mo’ join the sideburns — that’s a beard.
b. At no time shall the gentleman’s chin hair overshadow the Mo’s brilliance, nor may it join at the sides of the Mo — that’s a goatee.
c. For gentlemen who crave balance above all things, we will permit growth of a patch of the man’s own design under his bottom lip (aka a soul patch).
d. At no point may a gentleman’s eyebrows connect to the moustache. We most definitely do not endorse this.
3. Failure to observe these guidelines will, at the complete discretion of the Movember Committee, result in an embarrassing ejection from further Movember activities, including the Gala Parté. You do not desire this.
4. The Movember Committee accepts no responsibility for requests of heroism, increased female affection resulting in the alienation of girlfriends, increased senses of self-satisfaction, or any other of the potential side-effects of sporting a Movember mo.

So it’s time to stand up and be men, well at least for one month, grow your mo and wear it proud boys.
