I mean haven't you ever wondered what it would feel like to have those coarse wiry hairs dangling all over your lips or to have that ultimate symbol of manliness spread all over your face, keeping you warm during those cold, cold nights? Yes, growing a beard is a rite of passage for every man."

Aah, it's almost time for the best season of the year: Movember.
Registration is now open for this year's fantastic fundraising effort for men's health, so get your mug over there and sign up!
"During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces, in the US and around the world. With their "Mo's", these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men."
Register for Movember, and help us raise funds for men's health, especially cancers which affect men.
Here's your chance to pick up an electric razor which normally retails for $249.99 for just $89.99 - a savings of $160.00! The Panasonic ES8249S Arc IV Nanotech Vortex Wet/Dry Rechargeable Shaver:
"Get a smoother shave with Panasonic. Its 4 Nanotech blades with Arc Foil gives you a uniform '1-pass' shaving, while the pivoting head rocks up/down and back/forth, to follow the contours of your face. When you're done shaving, the HydraClean system automatically cleans the shaver with hygienic infused water and then dries it, so there's one less thing you have to worry about."

Panasonic goes after the premium electric shaver market with two new razors:
"The Panasonic Arc5(TM) shavers (models ES-LV81-K and ES-LV61-A) both employ five hypo-allergenic stainless steel Nanotech(TM) blades that are micro-polished and honed to sharp, 30-degree angles. Contributing to a smoother shave is a newly-developed Lift-Tech Foil(TM) that comfortably lifts and guides stubble closer to the blade while the ergonomic Multi-Flex(TM) Pivoting Head easily maneuvers around tough areas, such as the jaw line and under the chin. The combination of the blades' design and generously-sized pivoting head reduce pressure on the skin by dispersing contact over a larger area thereby decreasing the average pressure on the face by 13.2 percent. The result is not just a more comfortable shave, but shaving time is reduced by approximately one-third compared to a conventional shaver."
From the 'bizarre things you can do with your facial hair' story files:
"Like an elephant, Graham Clark never forgets. So when fellow standup comics Ivan Decker and Charlie Demers teased him about his ever-growing facial hair, saying he should paint with it the way an elephant paints with his trunk, Clark laughed--but socked the idea away."

Need some help with your manscaping routine? Guyism's got you covered:
"We are all thrilled that metrosexuals have taken their place in the annals of history, but that doesn't mean that we should go back to being Neanderthals. While some may think men shouldn't be concerned about what women want in terms of the male body, those men are idiots. A little bit of maintenance is a big step towards attracting a new young biscuit or keeping your old lady happy. These rules aren't set in stone, but they are a good reference for your average guy."

Whether you want to build some buzz for Movember, or just want to generate some yuks, these giant moustaches are the ticket:
"Moustaches are pretty funny already but giant moustaches are even better, especially places they don't belong. I took some discount fabric and discarded cardboard to make giant moustache stick-em's, moustaches that can be attached anywhere, instantly transforming anything into instant moustache awesomeness!"
Find out how: Giant Moustache Stick-em's
Introducing the Cowboy Comb:
"Once upon a time on the west coast, two young gents by the names of Brian Lee and Chad H. Nelson found themselves disgruntled as they struggled to find a delicate way to tame their wild mustaches. They pondered on different tools that would groom their upper lip blankets just right. Sure there were hair brushes, toothbrushes, even eyebrow combs, but to use any of those on the masterpiece that defines the face? They knew better than to kick a cow patty on a hot day. So as you can see, the Original Cowboy Comb was created out of necessity."

"September 5, 1698. Russian Tsar Peter the Great imposes a taxes on beards as part of a effort to westernise his nobility. The Tsar had just returned from a tour of Europe (where most men were clean shaven) and was determined to revolutionise Russian society, culture and even fashion."

From Business Insider:
"When you always have a beard with short hair no one really says anything. Most people that I meet know me as a guy with a beard and life goes on as it would with any other person. But growing a full, big beard is different. You've got to put away the razors and scissors and step into something new. That's what I love about it - that it's different, it's change, and most people won't even try it in their life."

On September 10, the fourth annual Coney Island Beard and Moustache Competition will be held:
"Burly beards and manicured moustaches flock to Coney Island for Donny Vomit's 4th Annual Coney Island Beard and Moustache Competition. In true Coney Island fashion, this event celebrates the amazing and the absurd as contestants compete for Trophy Fez's in such catagories as Moustache/Beard Natural and Styled, Best Fake beard, for those not naturally gifted with the fuzz and Worst in Show for the tackiest and tasteless presentation."

From the Valley Advocate:
"Pubic hair is like wrapping paper. Originally, it was designed to keep you warm, prevent dirt from falling into your sensitive bits, and trap and share mate-attracting pheromone scents. Most important, it served as an organic neon sign, letting potential mates know that, hey! there's something tempting hidden under all this. Like a big, shiny bow on our reproductive packages, our little curlies seduced others to unwrap and enjoy."
