Movember fun of taking the cheek

THOSE men - and women - who have supported the cause of Movember have had a lot of fun and taken a bit of cheek, but in the end have raised money for one of the many worthy causes out there in the community.

This morning most of the protagonists who adopted a mo will return to the process of having a complete shave, rather than contouring or manscaping something that varies between a thing of beauty to comparisons of escaped caterpillars.

Certainly the labels pinned on some chap's efforts could be construed as hurtful - who wishes to be described as having an [upper-lip] appendage usually linked with a porn-star? It is fortunate these men have thick skins and take it all in jest.

Higher profile Movember enthusiasts like the Test cricketers or Wallabies give the cause plenty of exposure and to some men within the community, a bit of heart knowing their hirsute upper lips are better than an opening batsman or rampaging forward wearing the green and gold.

TODAY is expected to be another stinker - perfect for cultivating the relationship between the sofa and the cricket.

But not all of us are watchers, so take care out there. People should also minimise physical activity and stay indoors during the peak hours between 11am and 5pm. Anyone showing signs of heat-related illness - including dizziness, fainting, nausea, headaches and loss of sweating - should seek urgent medical attention.
