.. which one of these lovely men has grown the most impressive mustache?

The lovely MNHQ fellas have been busy grooming their facial fuzz (or forests in some cases) for Movember

Please do donate a quid or five to a great cause and support the MNHQ men.

Check out their rather fetching progress below:

I think we should have a whip-round to buy Patrickmumsnet a fake moustache for his final Movember photo.

When he peels it off afterwards, the adhesive will helpfully remove the Movember wisps as the same time.

Something like this one should do the trick.

<gives Patrick a quick squeeze>

blonde. Ah.

AppleOgies Fri 23-Nov-12 16:21:23

How do I sponsor PatrickMumsnet? He's not on the list?

Jux Fri 23-Nov-12 18:18:18

They're all thoroughly delightful <sycophant>

Oh, OK, number 1.

keanu Fri 23-Nov-12 18:59:15

Poor number 3!!

I am partial to number 6 myselfwink

1 or 4 and I now suspect my DH has a double grin but really it's an age thing.
DH couldn't grow a Santa beard.....yet.

Yes, we need more evidence of an actual mo for No3 please. Good job all round though chaps - will any of you be keeping your new facial furniture?

Btw lovely Helen, re: thread title, there's an 'O' in moustache <Runs off to hide in pedants' corner> grin

Hellooooo, 2...
There's a luffly space under my bed just for you.
What's that you say? Mr Wank? Oh, he won't notice, he works nights <pats bed next to her>

Patrick, it will be ok. You have outstripped my brother, you are doing well.

No idea what you're referring to, MrsKwazii <whistles>

madwomanintheattic Sat 24-Nov-12 15:40:44

Oh, I assumed it was a deliberate pun on 'must' ask... You totally missed a trick, there, Helen. You could have got away with it.

No, it's still a pun; just a correctly spelled one, now smile

madwomanintheattic Sat 24-Nov-12 16:36:07

See, but now, it's irritating the life out of me and making my teeth itch.

I had organized it in my head as a deliberate mis-spelling. And now, even though it's right, it looks wrong, because I'd legitimised the 'must' by virtue of the pun!

<frets>

<blocks thread>

<pours more caffeine>

First time I've ever had my inner pedant melt down over a correct spelling though...

Sorry, Patrick. This isn't helping the growth vibes, is it?

<soothes>

Sorry madwomanintheattic, really don't want to make those teeth itch!

But <allows inner pedant full range> to make the pun work, it either has to be "we moustache you" (allowing the pronounciation to do the work for you) or "we must-ache you" (using the hyphen to create the pun).

Our original "we mustache you" was wrong because it was a misspelling of moustache or an insufficiently clear play on must and ask.

<realises have probably made your teeth itch even more now>

Hassled Sat 24-Nov-12 18:43:42

I bloody hate all moustaches but if the question is "whose moustache looks most like that of Stephen Fry in WW1 Blackadder?" then the answer has to be No 1. And as that was the least bad of moustaches I have come across, it's a clear winner.

madwomanintheattic Sat 24-Nov-12 19:01:06

Aye.

I know.

But I had reconciled my inner pedant to give you the benefit of the doubt re the missing hyphen. grin

And now it's backfired. I was wrong, you was wrong, we was all wrong.

<said in manner of petulant four year old>

<goes back to active to try to reset moustachioed/ mustachioed expectations>

It doesn't help that I am daily trying to avoid negotiate north americanisms. Who knew that 'whilst' is not recognised? Or that 'kip' is completely unfathomable to folk I count as friends?

<they probably spell it mustache as well>

<wails>

GetKnitted Sat 24-Nov-12 21:37:48

Sorry RebeccaMumsnet, I didn't notice the numbers and thought that number 3 was you ;) blush

MrsKwazii Sat 24-Nov-12 23:20:24

Apologies for the 'O' related angst wink <runs away again>

SirBoobAlot Sun 25-Nov-12 00:14:55

Number one looks like something from a Mexican porn film.

<disclaimer, I have a Mexican friend. He assures me that's what all the men look like in Mexican porn>

Good on you guys.

"We moustache you a question"

And I have an answer, but I'm shaving it for later...

Thank you! Thank you! I'm here all night!

AppleOgies Sun 25-Nov-12 09:07:03

Bravo Andi you are wasted MN, get thee to the Hammersmith Apollo! grin

AndiMac Sun 25-Nov-12 10:06:42

I have always fancied giving stand-up a go, but would need an audience of Mumsnetters as all my material is based on kids and married life. I won't tell you my best story in case it truly happens.

Number 1 looks my dad.

I would LOVE to see the rest of number 6.

DramaInPyjamas- you'd love to see the rest of him, hey? How much of the "rest" are we talking? grin

I know which "rest" I'd be talking about, if you replaced "6" with "2." <salacious>

SoupDragon Sun 25-Nov-12 15:58:49

Would PatrickMumsnet like a crocheted moustache toupee?

TheGrumpalo Sun 25-Nov-12 20:25:41

I vote for number 1!
