It's the MNHQ Movember Finale: whose tache is the toppest?

(77 Posts)
HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 12:06:11

So they've done it. After weeks and weeks of heroic hair-growing, the MNHQ men have finished their Movember Challenge.

And we're going to post up their final-day pics in just a mo.

The question is now: which of them has grown the most majestic moustache? We're talking bushiness, sub-nasal style, and all-round follicle-boosting effort...

Please do post your not at all judgey thoughts on this thread. And, if you could bung 'em a quid or five to help them support a great cause that would be wonderful.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 12:10:31

Right, so here's DarrenMumsnet

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 12:10:54

And GeorgeTech

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 12:11:32

And ShamTech

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 12:11:52

And PeterNotATech

BookieMonster Fri 30-Nov-12 12:13:15

ShamTech, definitely. Quality and quantity, his 'tache has it all.

caramelwaffle Fri 30-Nov-12 12:13:51

Oh it has to be ShamTech.

No Patrick? <innocent>

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 12:14:27

And Tech

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 12:15:06

And <drum roll> PatrickMumsnet

caramelwaffle Fri 30-Nov-12 12:15:45

Well actually, I've changed my mind: ShamTech looks as though he always has a bushy 'Tache. GeorgeTech looks as though his has taken more effort.

I vote GeorgeTech.

caramelwaffle Fri 30-Nov-12 12:16:55


He is vair nice btw

QOD Fri 30-Nov-12 12:17:37

Sham for sure!

And I can't wait to see you ladies photos at the end of Fanuary and the men's at the end of Cocktober

SillyBeardyDudeyman Fri 30-Nov-12 12:17:40

Bwah ha ha! Well done Patrick!

SoupDragon Fri 30-Nov-12 12:19:20

I vote Patrick for sheer effort.

HullyEastergully Fri 30-Nov-12 12:34:00

Pattikins has just drawn his on, hasn't he?

He also looks very tired and a bit haggard. Is he on drugs?

SillyBeardyDudeyman Fri 30-Nov-12 12:38:29

I thought he'd been electrocuted. Have you seen his hair?

chubbleigh Fri 30-Nov-12 12:40:59

Like the shamtech Birt Reynolds affair best.

SoupDragon Fri 30-Nov-12 12:41:38

I'm sure it wasn't really drawn on, he's just been using Miracle Gro since the last photo.

CMOTDibbler Fri 30-Nov-12 12:46:06

Bless Patrick, it really hasn't happened for him has it. I like ShamTech and Techs Mos the best.

SoupDragon Fri 30-Nov-12 13:06:15

ShamTech's one looks like the fake fur ones you can buy in joke shops.

OvOinAManger Fri 30-Nov-12 13:11:52

ShamTech has the manliest one for sure. grin

I'm also strangely attracted to Tech's.

But I love my DH's ginger goatee so freely admit I may not be the best judge of 'tache.

Patrick forever! Also, he has the same bed hair DD gets. Fork-in-electric style.

Do tell GeorgeTech that he and his shmexy mo are allowed in my sack at will.

NaiceDude Fri 30-Nov-12 14:07:26

grin grin grin grin

Sham has to take it, but bloody good effort all round and with Darren v close second! I love the MNHQ fellas.

Corygal Fri 30-Nov-12 14:08:34

Tech wins - that saucy combo of gravity and New Orleans boulevardier would get anyone ripping their thermals off.

nameuschangeus Fri 30-Nov-12 14:11:55

Gotta be sham. He has the smirk to match it!

OhComeAllYeZombies Fri 30-Nov-12 14:17:20

Are we allowed to take the most kissable lips into account?


OhFentonDUDE Fri 30-Nov-12 14:21:50

I look at Sham and hear in my head "it's-a-me, Mario"

Patrick gets 10/10 for artistic flair

Tech gets my true vote.

Well done to them all, but ::shudder:: I bet the rest of you can't wait 'til they shave them off, can you?


Pinot Fri 30-Nov-12 14:37:13

Patrick for styling it out so brazenly! grin

HullyEastergully Fri 30-Nov-12 14:39:45

Oh Pinot, do you still hanker so for Pattikins?

There is a Luke now, you know.

Pinot Fri 30-Nov-12 14:42:59

grin Mebbe just a tad. We scared ole Patrick away last time though! A Luke? Bring him to me, served warm and on a platter, pleaseandthanks.

HullyEastergully Fri 30-Nov-12 14:45:53

you have to find him first

Pinot Fri 30-Nov-12 14:48:42

I have shown him my bosom.


<zero decorum. ZERO>

HullyEastergully Fri 30-Nov-12 14:49:16


Pinot Fri 30-Nov-12 14:52:19


NulliusInBlurba Fri 30-Nov-12 14:55:33

Patrick definitely deserves the headmistress's Justine's special prize for a superb effort in the face of adversity. That's a wonderful curl he's got, pure Dali in style.

ReshapeWhileDashingThroTheSnow Fri 30-Nov-12 14:55:36

I like Tech's best. Did ShamTech really start with a blank lip? (Cos DH cheated and started with what he'd already got, but now has waxed curls that go all the way round like a ringmaster.) If he started with a blank canvas, I reckon ShamTech gets the prize for sheer manly hormones. grin

MsElleTow Fri 30-Nov-12 14:57:49

I vote Patrick.

He looks very young!

JenFrankincenseAndMyrrh Fri 30-Nov-12 15:03:21

Yum Yum Patrick. Why have I only just found out about him?

PatrickMumsnet is gorgeous!!!

HullyEastergully Fri 30-Nov-12 15:16:59

He is a coward tho and that is never attractive in a muchacho

JenFrankincenseAndMyrrh Fri 30-Nov-12 15:37:33

That's right Hully. Now folks step away from Patrick, he's not what you want at all he's all mine

SoupDragon Fri 30-Nov-12 15:39:38

Is ShamTech's tache a ShamTache? It must be!

ilovesprouts Fri 30-Nov-12 15:58:43

whats patrick been on hmm .

AppleOgies Fri 30-Nov-12 16:03:21


AppleOgies Fri 30-Nov-12 16:05:38

Well done! Bet you can't wait to shave them off.

OlaRapaceFru Fri 30-Nov-12 16:30:34

So which of the guys has been most flamboyant?
See attached!!!!!

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 30-Nov-12 17:31:32

Hello. Just to add that JustineMN has just offered to match the total the MNHQ men manage to raise.

Do please chuck in a few quid, if you can, to make her delve a bit deeper into her wallet smile

TaggieCampbellBlack Fri 30-Nov-12 17:36:11

Patrick needs disqualifying <<strict>>

My vote goes to George. He looks quite kissable.

TeeHollyandTeeIvy Fri 30-Nov-12 17:36:39

I vote for Patrick just for pure chutzpah and good sportedness.

And cuz I like his hair.

racingheart Fri 30-Nov-12 19:16:12

Shamtech wins. Proper tache.

EduCated Fri 30-Nov-12 19:19:02

I vote Patrick <brazen>

<Not as brazen as Pinot>

TheOriginalLadyFT Fri 30-Nov-12 22:41:51

Darren for me, I'm afraid - elegant, nicely even and sets off his rather beautiful mouth perfectly wink

BabylonPI Sat 01-Dec-12 07:12:27

Patrick for me blush he looks rather luffly grin

EduCated Sat 01-Dec-12 09:59:23

<hard stare> Babylon envy

Mine. Mine mine mine mine mine mine mine. Mine. Mine mine.

JingleBellaTheGymnast Sat 01-Dec-12 15:22:45

I vote Tech, he has a 1940s RAF Captain thing going on.

Corygal Sat 01-Dec-12 22:01:32

Can I vote twice for Tech?

BRANdishingMistletoe Sat 01-Dec-12 22:52:12

I vote for Patrick. grin I was worried for him that he might feel less manly left out, but he's turned that frown up-side-down.

DarrenMumsnet looks really like Simon Pegg with that moustache.

More votes for George <3

<Whips out bosom, casually mentions keg-ownership>

Also, MN, I'd donate BUT. BUT.

I can't get it to let me use my dollars. Sigh. I shall just have to donate more to DP's walrus-tache.

MrsKwazii Sun 02-Dec-12 20:43:24

I vote Patrick for standing proud in the face of all the mickey-taking

BIWIshYouAMerryChristmas Sun 02-Dec-12 21:00:14


<throws caution to the wind because it's for money>

I'd snog them all

BIWIshYouAMerryChristmas Sun 02-Dec-12 21:00:31

<watches all of the male MNHQ run for the hills>

BabylonElf Sun 02-Dec-12 21:03:41

<hides from hard stare> grin

MrsKwaziipanFruits Sun 02-Dec-12 22:00:19

You like a 'tache then BIWI wink

BluelightsAndSirens Sun 02-Dec-12 22:00:29

Where is Luke's tach?

EduCated Sun 02-Dec-12 22:02:16

Does Luke have a 'tache? <innocent>

ChippingInLovesAutumn Sun 02-Dec-12 22:03:03

That George, he definitely has kissable looking lips grin

ShamTech definitely wins the most fearsome looking 'tach though!!

Well done all of them for being such good sports & raising money!

EduCated Sun 02-Dec-12 22:03:11

X-post grin

I say Patrick. The 'tache is obviously real grin

SantasStrapOn Sun 02-Dec-12 23:22:15

I vote Tech <unfeminine leering>

With PeterNotATech second.

Can I be first prize please? grin

Voting for ShamTech

<Where's Luke?>

BIWIshYouAMerryChristmas Mon 03-Dec-12 07:59:20

I hope so, MrsK - have never seen DH without his, and have known him for 26 years!

SantasStrapOn Mon 03-Dec-12 13:41:11

I don't think I know what LukeMNHQ looks like. Am I missing out?

OlaRapaceFru Mon 03-Dec-12 17:34:26

I think that Luke only joined MNHQ during the month of November - so it was too late for him to join in Movember from the start.

My votes are :

1) Tech (I luffs Tech wink)
2) Patrick (I love the innovative creativity <snort, giggle>)

But, well done all you guys grin

SledYuleCated Mon 03-Dec-12 18:16:28

He's yet to reveal himself, Stratters sad

OlaRapaceFru Mon 03-Dec-12 19:04:41

I think he might have revealed himslef to Chaos though hmm [wunk]
