Between the two branches of the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management, my brother Dan and I have recruited 39 solid dudes for this year’s Movember campaign. Each and every one of these distinguished gentlemen is giant among men in his own right, but one recruit this year has me particularly excited: my dad, Dave Gibbons!
Last year, my dad sent along some old photos of his fantastic ‘stache and I wrote up a long post about this epic and classic—but sadly retired—soup strainer. It was a lot of fun to share some photos of the mustache pedigree from which my own fuzzy caterpillar came, but I never really thought I’d see this ‘stache of Gibbons’ past rise like a phoenix from the ashes of another era! However, to my surprise and pure elation, my dad has joined the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management: Midwest and will be lending his upper lip to our righteous, cancer-fightin’ cause for Movember 2011!
If two Gibbons mustaches are better than one, then the mighty triumvirate of ‘stache we three shall form this Movember will be a facial hair feat history shall not soon forget!
Not a bad bit of news for Movember’s Eve! I can’t wait for the Movember 2011 Gibbons Family Photo… Christmas card material, I’m thinking.
