Thank God

NZPA reports:

Prime Minister has pledged his support for — but he will not be sprouting facial hair.

Movember is a campaign to raise awareness and funds for men’s health.

It involves men growing moustaches during November.

The organisers of this year’s event said Mr Key had expressed his support but said his job prevented him from growing a moustache.

Mr Key has said he would wear Movember cufflinks during November instead.

The thought of John with a mo is just disturbing. Shudder.

Politically the issue of facial hair is interesting. Very very few senior politicians have beards or moustaches. I believe there is considerable evidence that the public consider men with beards or moustaches as more shady etc. Can’t be bothered looking up the academic research but someone might post links.
