Mo Money Movember

19 Oct

So there’s this guy you may have heard of, and his name is Le Clown. If you haven’t, you need to educate yourself because there are two things in life I take very seriously: (1) Law & Order marathons on the USA network and (2) blogging clowns. Without those things, what’s the point of living?

There are a few things you need to know about him:

(1) He breastfeeds sock monkeys

(2) He hates Rush, one of the greatest bands of all time

(3) He has serious camel ball

He’s also a very generous dude who loves to have a million projects going on at once. His latest effort is the Bloggers for Movember campaign. Movember is a cause which takes place each November, and helps raise money and build awareness around men’s health issues, specifically testicular and prostate cancers. Something I was unaware of is that it also aims to do the same for men’s mental health issues.

It didn’t surprise me that Le Clown wanted to get involved. I mean, this is a guy who massages his prostate courtesy of Klout. There are a handful of ways you can show your support, all of which are outlined in his post (all applicable links below.) My favorite is the growing of a mustache (or beard!) during the month of November.

Naturally, I wanted to participate because not only do I love me some charity, but I love me some facial hair. “Jen, you can’t grow a mustache. You’re a girl!” Oh, on the contrary my lovely Hooked on Tonics. I’m partially Mexican and have the testosterone level of Lou Ferrigno. This means I get a five o’clock shadow at half past two.

I know it’s not November yet, but I thought I’d kick things off to get people motivated to throw their hat in the ring when the time comes.

Is that your goatee, or are you just happy to see me?

Shiver me timbers!

Shiver me timbers!

Please, please, PLEASE participate in any way you can. You can find out more about the cause by visiting these links:

    I’m experiencing an inner turmoil…
    You’re beautiful…and handsome…and womanly…and macho…
    I have feeling for you that I never had before.
    I think it’s my prostate.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/20/2012 at 8:22 pm #

      You better get that thingamajig you got from Klout, and investigate what it is you’re feeling.

    The biker stache is my favorite by far. And my kids are part Italian so they pretty much came out of the womb with unibrows and mustaches.

    P.S. I had no idea until this moment that my twitter stuff would show up on other people’s blogs…

    • Jen and Tonic 10/20/2012 at 4:07 pm #

      Doesn’t everything always end up on someone’s blog? Also, I imagined your kids coming out looking like one of the Super Mario Brothers, and it made me laugh.

    If only you had sported a soul patch…then I would have proposed marriage.

  4. writerwendyreid 10/19/2012 at 5:41 pm #

    Love the staches…you are so creative! πŸ™‚

  5. Janene 10/19/2012 at 4:35 pm #

    Loving the biker chick look!

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 5:09 pm #

      Get on the back of my hog, I’ll take you for a ride.

      That was unintentionally sexually harassing. I apologize.

  6. Madame Weebles 10/19/2012 at 2:26 pm #

    I think I like the Biker Chic ‘stache best, Jen. You really rock that one. Being half Sicilian, I can grow my own mustache pretty quickly. Except that it makes me look like John Waters.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 2:39 pm #

      I tried to go for the John Waters, but I just couldn’t! I am so jealous.

  7. Veronica Roth 10/19/2012 at 11:39 am #

    Moving on a few years…who knew stashes would be the new black! Time to put away the wax and free my inner Frieda Kahlo. πŸ™‚

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 12:41 pm #

      Bell bottoms, platform shoes, round sunglasses…everything comes back around again. Liberate your unibrow!

  8. becca3416 10/19/2012 at 10:33 am #

    You make a fine sh-male lumberjack :).

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 10:58 am #

      YES! Just what I was going for. My parents will be so proud.

  9. Dani Heart 10/19/2012 at 10:05 am #

    I think you have rocked the Tom Selleck beard Jen it’s my favorite. Great post.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 10:30 am #

      It seems to be a fan favorite! Who knew? Thanks for stopping by Dani πŸ™‚ XO!

  10. TJLubrano 10/19/2012 at 8:59 am #

    This is such an awesome post, Jen! You rock ALL staches! πŸ™‚ So cool. I will look at the links in a bit and ponder how I can contribute as well.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 9:05 am #

      It would be GREAT if you could help! You have a large audience, and I could see you putting a really fun twist on this.

      • TJLubrano 10/19/2012 at 10:02 am #

        If I can help a wee bit, I’m happy! And…I have an idea floating around…will brainstorm some more though haha.

        • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 10:31 am #

          Are you like this right now: @_@

          • TJLubrano 10/19/2012 at 10:34 am #

            Yes! Well, you do have to turn the a into =. Maybe something like this? (=)_(=)…Oh god. They look like odd boobs or something.

          • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 10:58 am #

            (=o=)(=o=) staring at the internet with bloodshot eyes…this is getting strange.

          • TJLubrano 10/19/2012 at 11:15 am #

            I like strange πŸ˜€

  11. sweetmother 10/19/2012 at 8:40 am #

    oh the beard! the beard! πŸ˜‰

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 9:05 am #

      My pirate beard brings all the girls to the yard!

      • Soul Walker 10/20/2012 at 1:28 am #

        So if I just wait in your yard with my beard… do you think I could pass for you?

        • Jen and Tonic 10/20/2012 at 1:51 am #

          Probably. You may want to stuff your bra though.

          • Soul Walker 10/20/2012 at 8:55 am #

            Noted… what should I use for that if I am worried about the weather? It seems like tissues would “deflate” if it rained on me while I was being a creeper and trying to piggyback off your awesomeness.

          • Jen and Tonic 10/20/2012 at 4:00 pm #

            Chicken cutlets in a Ziploc bag. Bonus: If you get felt up, nobody would know the difference.

          • Soul Walker 10/20/2012 at 10:42 pm #

            I’m going to the store. If you see me outside your window please don’t call the police… I’m waiting for the crowds, not you.

          • Jen and Tonic 10/20/2012 at 10:48 pm #

            Is that you? I’m waving at you now!

  12. The Waiting 10/19/2012 at 8:18 am #

    In your last pic, you totes look like a former member of N’Sync. Loves.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 9:04 am #

      You’re tearing up my heart! That ain’t no lie baby bye bye bye. No wait, I want you back!

  13. Rutabaga the Mercenary Researcher 10/19/2012 at 7:49 am #

    You & I must be made from the same hairy-gene pool – but mine is Italian πŸ™‚

    I should have a full on stache/beard by November …. I’m going for the shiver me timbers look – I can’t resist a pirate – even it it’s me..

    I can’t seem to find my prostate…

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 9:02 am #

      Ah, yes. Italians and Mexicans are only second to Portuguese women. MY GOD. Those ladies put us to shame.

      Can’t find your prostate? You should ask Clown if you can borrow his (actually The Ringmistress’) Klout perk.

      • Rutabaga the Mercenary Researcher 10/19/2012 at 9:24 am #

        I’m trying to eat, Jen…

      • TJLubrano 10/19/2012 at 11:14 am #

        I’m part Italian and Portuguese. I better not tell you what I look like when it’s the full moon.

        Hehe.

        • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 11:16 am #

          TJ, is that you?

          • TJLubrano 10/19/2012 at 11:18 am #

            Noooooo! I told them NOT to use that one! The rudeness. If you’d excuse me…it is dinner time *growls*

            Oh. Pretend you didn’t hear that okay?

          • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 11:19 am #

            Deal.

  14. La La 10/19/2012 at 7:40 am #

    Aaaaand you’re awesome. Mine grows in as a crustache, mostly.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 8:56 am #

      So your mustache is delicious? That trumps what I’ve got going on.

      • La La 10/19/2012 at 10:07 am #

        A true, tasty treat!

  15. Carrie Rubin 10/19/2012 at 7:01 am #

    You wear a stache way better than Tom Selleck.

  16. Brigitte 10/19/2012 at 6:42 am #

    Jen, you really rock that facial hair and even better for Le Clown’s cause! I can’t stand Rush either so that’s something that me and the clown guy has in common that I wasn’t even aware of.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 8:52 am #

      Wait…YOU don’t like Rush either?! Is it just too much goodness for your ears to handle?

      • Brigitte 10/19/2012 at 8:55 am #

        Sadly no. But I do like that guy on the VW commercial air-drumming to Rush — does that count? :).

        • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 8:57 am #

          Okay, I’ll give it to you, but just because I like you so much!

      • Madame Weebles 10/19/2012 at 2:24 pm #

        Jen, we need to do something about this.

        • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 2:38 pm #

          QUICK: send some American water to them. Make them drink it. Allow the love of Rush to seep into their veins.

          • Madame Weebles 10/19/2012 at 2:40 pm #

            The thing is, Brigitte IS American. You’d think she’d have been indoctrinated already.

          • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 3:01 pm #

            What?! I just assumed. Can we get her on high treason? I know Rush is Canadian, but it’s unamerican.

      • Soul Walker 10/20/2012 at 1:25 am #

        I love Rush. I just feel that I have to tell you this.

    • Madame Weebles 10/19/2012 at 2:23 pm #

      Ohhhh, Brigitte. You break my heart.

  17. Christopher De Voss 10/19/2012 at 6:08 am #

    I’m jealous. You can grow more than me. I can only muster a douche beard.

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 8:52 am #

      I tried to go for the douche beard, but my eyeshadow pencil wouldn’t allow me to do that to myself.

  18. Le Clown 10/19/2012 at 6:07 am #

    Jen,
    This is magnificentβ„’, kind, funny, awesome (sorry, Ringmistress) and all kinds of Jen Tonic superlatives. It will also be the post featured today on our Bloggers for Movember Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/BloggersForMovember). Thank you, friend, and phenomenal blogger. You are as powerful as Darth Vader.
    Le Clown

    • Jen and Tonic 10/19/2012 at 8:51 am #

      The A word is allowed on this blog! I don’t think Sara will have a problem with you making Darth Vader references when talking to me now that she knows I’ve got killer mutton chops.

      So happy to help out!
