It’s Movember.  I know that I’m a bad man for not growing, not even wanting to grow, a mustache.  But I’m not insensitive or greedy. And I could grow a nice ‘stache in about a week. 

You can have my money.  All of it, if it comes to that. The ‘stache growers out there will have a big chunk of it. I get that it’s a more than worthy cause.   I know people who have suffered from prostate cancer.  It is a pestilince up with which we should not put.  But I am not going to attempt to channel Rollie Fingers to try and get people I don’t know to send me money to send on to an otherwise worthwhile charity when you will all be inundated with requests from others to send them cash for the same reason.  Others that you know better than me.  Like better than me.  That look better than me too, whether I am Rollie or not. So you can have me, clean (ish) shaven, this month and all the others. 

sweet potatoes and curry anyone?
