My damn-near-trademark beard has been shorn for the purpose of promoting men's health. That's right, it's Movember!
Don't worry, it'll be coming back, but it'll also return with a glorious moustache (note: it's not glorious at all). The purpose of all this is to start a conversation about men's health, and to help raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer research.
I'll be posting updates throughout the month, and asking you two important questions. First, have you had your annual physical? Yes, that includes that check. Uncomfortable, yes, But important.
Secondly, if you wish to donate, you can do so by going to my MoSpace (yeah, yeah, hardee har har), which is http://mobro.co/shaggymatt. I did this a couple of years ago, and raised some good money, but I think you can do better. Also, my wife hates when I do this, because the moustache is weird to kiss, and it looks really, really awful. So donate just to make the grief I'm going to get from Mrs. Shaggy worth it.
