News: Scroobius Pip Announces Movember Mission

Thursday 25 October 2012
Words Amy Lavelle

We here at Spindle are big beard people. We love a good display of facial hair- what’s not to love? So, with Movember just around the corner, we tend to get excited as men around the UK ditch their razors and prepare to give their girlfriends a healthy friction rash every time they go in for a snog.

When it comes to a good beard, Scroobius Pip is effectively the master. We’d really like to get a good stroke of it, but that would probably be unwise (for personal space and, possibly, legal reasons). However, this year, Mr Pip is railing against the Movember facial growth. In a video announcement released this morning, he wisely points out that when it comes to raising money for a bloody worthy cause, foregoing part of your morning hygiene ritual (and probably pissing off your girlfriend in the process) doesn’t really cut it. After all, a beard is for life, not just for Movember. And what about all those that can’t grow beards? The baby faced and majority of women among them. That’s just slightly similar to discrimination, in a way.

Instead, this year the hirsute man is taking a more active approach, only going and climbing a bloody mountain. Come November 14th (or around that date) Mount Snowden will be conquered in aid of prostate cancer and cancer research. And here we thought the beard was impressive.

So go, we urge you: put your money where your hairy upper lipped mouth is. Do more this Movember. Support Scroobius Pip on his Movember mission.
