Mark Drapeau's Movember mustache move

Mark Drapeau, accompanied by a couple of friends, displays his Movember mustache in a picture he posted to Facebook.

Many men have grown mustaches for "Movember," an annual charity event that benefits organizations dedicated to men's health issues, testicular and prostate cancer in particular.

Some men who want to take part but can't or prefer not to grow a mustache come up with creative solutions. Microsoft's director of innovative solutions, Mark Drapeau  posted his effort on Facebook, commenting, "I may not be growing a Movember mustache in real life, but at least I can pretend to have one on Facebook."

(Drapeau tells us this picture is actually from a gala in 2011.)
