I am not much of a joiner. Never have been and—as I’ve finally accepted—never will be. But sometimes an event comes around that entices participation. An event you want to be part of.
Two reasons compelled me to post an entry in support of Movember, a campaign to raise awareness of prostate cancer.
1. Le Clown proposed it.
2. It’s a campaign to raise awareness of prostate cancer. Duh.
For full details, see A Clown on Fire’s post entitled Bloggers for Movember. Not only does he hope to highlight prostate cancer, but he also wishes to improve understanding of male mental health issues. Bloggers are encouraged to write a post showing support of Movember, grow a moustache or encourage our men to do so, post a photo of said moustache, make a monetary donation, or add a badge to our blogs.
For the two of you who haven’t heard of Le Clown, suffice it to say he is a master of social media and a brilliant blogger. So much so that he was recently featured on The Daily Post at WordPress.com.
Well Monsieur Clown, I will try to do most of the above. The moustache part is a bit tricky. Any patchy, ill-formed tuft of facial hair Mr. Rubin might sprout would prompt hysterical vomiting. You know, the kind where one person vomits, and then the next, and then the next, until soon everyone is tossing their cookies. It would be that ugly. But I’ll try to do my part, even if it requires donning my own supra-oral muskrat.
Now, before I go, I should offer something else of value. Since we’re already focused on the semen-contributing gland, I will point out an important and oft-repeated mistake.
Folks, this is a prostate:
This is not:
The above pooch is prostrate. For example, when performing a prostate exam, a gloved physician should never assume the prostrate position. It would make for a difficult maneuver.
