Comic Book Truth

Sometimes comic artists are able to capture reality just perfectly:

Seriously, this comic would 100% accurate, if we could convince corporate CEOs to release a commercial that honest about the recent economic situation!

Oh, and if you like webcomics, go and check out Sinfest - it's one of the six comics I check out every Friday as a way to finish off a work week.

This Seems So Familiar

In this video, the role of my wife talking to our cats and dog will be played by Stephen Fry:

I swear, there are some days where my house sounds almost exactly like that! Plus, our dachshund looks almost exactly like the one in the video (but isn't nearly as well behaved.)

Photographic Evidence

Here are the before and after photos where I shaved clean for Movember:

Not only do a look like a complete tool without facial hair, but the entire fucking world knows it now. My favorite part is the rash I got from shaving my chin for the the first time since 1995. December can't come fast enough so I can cover up this ugly mug again!

I'll be back on the last day of November to post a photo with my mustache. The first and last one I'll ever grow!

Movember Sacrifice

In support of prostate cancer research (I mean research to prevent and treat it, not research to spread cancer it!), I've made a huge personal sacrifice - I have shaved clean for the first time since 1995, and will be growing a mustache for the first time ever.

This is the goal of Movember: getting men to grow a porn 'stache to raise money for a good cause. Since one of my grandfathers was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year, coworkers were able to guilt me into shaving off my goatee in order to disgrace my face by growing a mustache for the first (and only) time in my life!

I'm too ashamed to post pictures right now. Plus, my chin is cold and how the hell do guys do this every day? I just about frigging sliced my lips open a dozen times while trying to get those stupid little hairs right at the edges of the mouth! Seriously, after one month of this torture, I'm growing back to the goatee!

Oh, and if you'd like to show support for my outward display and Beardly Sacrifice for men's health, feel free to donate!

Here's hoping that the Norwegian in me comes out so I can at least rock the 'stache for one month...
