In Briefs

1. The Vanilla Slice Blog is the 'Featured Blog of the Day' at The Australian Index for being quirky and for profiling an Aussie obsession.

2. Gordon Ramsay admits to a low sperm count. Food critic Giles Coren has irregularly formed sperm. On the channel 4 food show 'The F Word' they examine the theory that eating refined and sugary processed foods, produce treated with chemicals, drinking sugary soft drinks and not drinking enough water contributes to poor sperm motility, irregular shape, dehydrated semen and a low sperm count.

To keep your custard in good shape, remember to drink 1.5 litres of water every day and to eat SOLE Food and Slow Food. Cook with the best quality produce you can afford
, wear loose briefs and you'll evidently keep 'your boys' happy.

3. Having raised money for mens' issues - with beneficiaries The Prostate Cancer Foundation & Beyond Blue - Movember wraps up in the next day. Thankfully Mr Stickyfingers will be removing his itchy big moustache - inspired by Lemmy of Motorhead - where both custard and icing collect on tasting. Last year he modelled himself on Borat sans Mankini - fetching.....NOT!

Movember (the month formally known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year.

At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants known as Mo Bros then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache and along the way raiseas much money and awareness about male health issues, in particular prostate cancer as possible.

Movember culminates at the end of the month at the gala partés. These glamorous and groomed events will see Tom Selleck and Borat look-a-likes battle it out for their chance to take home the prestigious Man of Movember title.

Congrats on the blog profile Sticky.
Nice segue(is that how you spell it?)from custard to sperm count by the way, the Chaser boys would be proud!
As to the whole Movember thingy. I have to say it was 'Baa-Humbug' for me. Whilst I like the idea of raising money & awareness for mens health, the sight of Chopper Reid lookalikes made me as uncomfortable as Elle Macfeast in THAT interview.
Even though a lot of fellas grow that droopy Village-People-leather-dude style in some post-modern ironic, anti-cool statement, I suspect that many of them actually like that look.
This is bewildering because we all (mostly0 think it looks tragic, except those of course who made it popular, Lemmy(as you already mentioned), Leather dude, Chopper & any male person south of our cities flanelette-curtain.
We went against tradition this year & my wife grew one & it looked so good, everyone wants her to keep it!

I love a vanilla slice but now it's all intermingled with sperm and I am not sure how I feel... Thanks for that Mrs Sticky, be sure to tell me your favourite dessert so I can ruin that for you, you know I like to repay a favour!!! Vida x x x x

OMG Vida I swear I just picked myself up off the ground and was in stitches laughing after reading your comment - fantastic! Thankfully I'm not a sweet tooth, but perhaps if you were to draw a bow between Dulce de Leche and baby pooh that would have a similar effect on me....oh have I put you off again? LOL!

Gobbler - I was walking along St.Kilda Road today and the men of Advertising land have taken the 'mo' thoroughly by the horns, there were tons of 'Cleo centrefolds' and seventies sporting heroes drifting by hirsutely. I figure that these are the childhood moustaches they idolised. God knows where Mr Sticky will take it next year...I suspect he'll grow his hair long and do Che Guevara.

Respect to Mrs Gobbler. One radio station suggested that there should be Brovember - where the women start with a 'Brazilian' and during the course of the month grow some 'exotic body topiary'.

Ran - Mr Stickyfingers is very relieved to be shaving his off tomorrow. It's a certain competitiveness with his peers that drives him to do it I think.

BTW Gobbler, it's true, I was channeling Anna Coren with that segue. As one of my friends says "It's really pants".

By the end of Brovember I'd look like I had a bird-eating tarantula in my fetching french knickers.


No thanks.

PG - perfect for pruning into a purple heart?

Purple Goddess, a bird eating spider is small fry!
When you can work your way toward having a Sporran thaat the local Highland Bagpipe Society can be envious of then you know you'll 'OWN' Brovember!
