A Hairy Announcement

Dear Readers,
I've decided to register for the charity movement known as Movember, which aims to raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men. To show my support for this movement, I'll be dabbling in the art of moustachery and establishing a team for the readership of the Unbearable Lightness of Dutch. I hope that you will support this endeavour as vigorously as you have the blog itself.

Many of the greatest heroes to feature in videogames have donned some form of facial hair. The most obvious example is of course Nintendo's moustachioed mascot, Mario. Other classic characters, from Final Fight's Mike Haggar to Captain Price from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series, have shielded their upper lip from harm with a bristly crumb catcher. The greatest (read: seediest) nose neighbour in videogame history would have to belong to Old Snake from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

Look at it: concise, determined, and deadly. Could a man ask for any more from his tea strainer? Sure Price's moustache carries a certain degree of distinction, but it lacks focus. Snake's mo has an objective, and it intends to achieve it.

To join the Unbearable Dutch Movember team, please go to and follow the steps. Once registered you'll be sent all the information you need to raise funds and start growing as part of our Movember team.

Thanks in advance for your support. Keep it healthy. Keep it hairy.
