Help team TechMology suffer through the rest of Movember


Some of us at IT World Canada boldly set out at the beginning of the month to help change the face of men’s health. Six men on our fine staff were determined to grow a moustache in order to help raise awareness – and money – in the fight against prostate cancer and mental health issues. Team TechMology was born and everything was looking great. Little did we know that having a moustache isn’t always a great deal. A few weeks into the challenge, we’re having a few regrets…


“I was opening an anchovies tin and I splashed some of the water on my moustache. I’ve been smelling it for a week now. God, I hate anchovies.” – Brian Jackson, Editor of


“Whoever said blondes have more fun, never tried to grow a moustache.” – Jeff Radecki, web designer/developer


Scientific studies commissioned by the Guinness Brewing Company found the average moustachioed beer drinker traps a pint and a half in their moustache every year. I’m getting short-changed on my beer drinking! – Richard Boelens, Systems Administrator


“Ugh. Is that even a moustache? Why does it have 3 dark hairs and a billion blonde ones? Maybe I should just dye it all blue…” – Andrew Love, video producer.


I’m growing a mo in hopes that I never have this expression in reaction to news from my doctor. – Mat Pancha, director of IT operations.
