Grow That Mo, Bro!

By John DiGilio in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 1, 2012 4:30PM

2012_11_DiGilio_Mo&sons-Mo-Icon.jpg Movember is finally here! Today is officially Day One of a month long celebration of what it means to be a man. Thousands of men around the world are starting the day with cleanly shaven faces, in the hopes of growing awesome moustaches by month's end. More importanty, these Mo-Bros are raising money and awareness for cancers in men. We want you to join their ranks! Now that you are done stuffing your faces with Halloween candy, we'd like to see you put those kissers to good use.

This year, Chicagoist is pleased to field its own lip carpet team, the aptly named "Mo'Cagoist" crew. We need a few good men to lend us their upper lips and share their stories. Ladies, you too can get in on the fun. Mo-Sistas may not be growing staches, but they support the men in their lives by signng on and raising money. It is easy and it is fun. And guys . . . just think about how sweet you'll look in December with that fuzzy Tom Selleck shellac under your nose. ESPN Chicago is even reporting that Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is getting in on the 'stache action this year!

It's Movember, folks, and the moustache is king! What will you grow?

Join our Mo'Cagoist team and make a stand against cancer!
