Things will be getting decidedly shaggy around the Metropolis offices next week, thanks to the onset of Movember. This annual charity drive for men’s health sees dudes across the globe starting November 1 with a clean shave and then letting their moustache grow for the rest of the month—and the funkier the better. Hop on the Movember website and register your office team or sign up as an individual, then try and rack up sponsorship. Nifty interactive functions let you track the progress of your hirsute friends around the world. Proceeds are used to raise awareness of men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and depression. www.movember.com
