RIM Employees Are Growing Mustaches For Charity and Sport

In Canada, they have no use for Octobeard. Instead, Ontario-based RIM is encouraging employees to cultivate mustaches along with smartphones in Movember. But to what (finely waxed) end?

The entry fees of five dollars will collectively go towards prostate cancer research, which is great! But while the rules are quite explicit as to what does and does not qualify as a mustache, these rules don't do anything to tell me how one wins. Length? Depth? Artistic merit? Will a Fu Manchu be weighted more than a Trucker 'stache?


Deep questions that demand answers. In the meantime, gentlemen of RIM, godspeed. May your lips save many prostates this holiday season. [Reddit via Erictric]
