.. 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:

grin bless number 3! My mum can grow a better moustache than that! Number 1 wins, I think!

Onetwothreeoops Thu 22-Nov-12 17:58:39

Are you sure number 3 is doing it right grin

ThePathanKhansWitch Thu 22-Nov-12 18:05:38

Number 6 is very fetching.Number 1,frankly,scary and sinister
Number 4 looks very kind, if a bit scrufdty.
Number 5, interesting colour and contrasts nicely with the nose.
Number 2,very nice.

Number 3, if my tash was like yours, i,d be a happy women.Pull your finger out number3, it,s a disaster at the moment.

Sorry.

AppleOgies Thu 22-Nov-12 18:14:07

Oh dear PatrickMumsnet it's just not growing is it? sad. I shall sponsor you for effort. smile

ElectricSoftParade Thu 22-Nov-12 18:50:29

I think Number One is the winner. <blush>

Oh dear number 3, just remember it's the taking part that counts wink

Number 1's is the best so far, it's a proper dodgy porno tash and Number 2's looks like an 80's throwback grin

madwomanintheattic Thu 22-Nov-12 21:00:39

Number three isn't really taking part, is he?

Is he the control to help you gauge the progress of the actual participants?

I do feel vaguely uncomfortable judging a man by his ability to produce facial hair. But, erm, good job chaps. I do realize that's not what we're supposed to be doing, but these 'check out the hair on this!' threads are bizarre.

(Is number three's wife paying him not to grow a 'tache?)

ThePathanKhansWitch Thu 22-Nov-12 21:22:47

He he check out the hair on this.
Line if the week grin.

BRANdishingMistletoe Thu 22-Nov-12 21:37:48

Number 6 is the best as it has a nice shape. <Secretly I like number 3 the best as I really hate moustaches.>

edam Thu 22-Nov-12 21:42:00

no 6 for me.

Was on the tube yesterday and saw a group of girls all giggly on a night out, wearing fake moustaches, presumably for Movember. Only a couple had forgotten their fakes and just drawn beards and moustaches on with marker pen... what time this morning do you think it was when they realised that was a very bad idea indeed? grin

No. 3 is briilant

We needEd a smiley for this

MmeLindor Thu 22-Nov-12 21:57:38

Patrick is never going to live this down, is he?

<sends extra gin>

No. 4 is my favourite. Neat and tidy.

Nos. 1 and 6 are straying close to caricatures of Mario Bros.

fraktion Fri 23-Nov-12 00:31:57

I quite like 2...

1 is pretty impressive, as is 6, but 3 is, well, not - is he an intern?

Aw, leave PatrickMumsnet alone! Blonde taches don't show up so well on photos <defensive>

Tee2072 Fri 23-Nov-12 11:17:53

I think we need an extreme close up shot of PatrickMumsnet's face.

Ponders Fri 23-Nov-12 11:46:34

what Patrick needs is some eyelash dye so that we can see his whiskers. You can get it in Boots, Patrick - blue-black would look interesting!

(I have sons with fair whiskers & one of them dyes his, all the time, only he uses actual beard dye - who knew? wink)

coppertop Fri 23-Nov-12 13:59:47

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.

madwomanintheattic Fri 23-Nov-12 15:28:55

<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

harbingerofdoom Fri 23-Nov-12 21:47:58

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.

MrsKwazii Fri 23-Nov-12 22:51:26

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.

AndiMac Sun 25-Nov-12 01:04:05

"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!

OlaRapaceFru Thu 29-Nov-12 19:22:33

Just in case you missed my photo on the other thread, I saw this today - couldn't resist taking a photo.

Which variety of 'tache are you growing, guys?!

OlaRapaceFru Thu 29-Nov-12 19:23:42

Oh, hell. It hasn't uploaded blush
