I could think of no better way to remove my moustache than to blast it off with a cannon.

Sadly, I shaved this morning. I had to testify today in the Louisiana Senate's Committee on Healthcare and Welfare. I am working to pass a bill aimed at protecting youth athletes from concussion and severe brain injury. As the Chairman of the Louisiana Youth Concussion Coalition, duty called and my DTM bumped down a notch on my priority list. Please check out the Louisiana Youth Concussion Coalition on Facebook if you'd like to know more.

Mackle, I beg your mercy. Please do not shame me. I'd like the MattyC treatment if at all possible but at worst case, to be Lurked. Landing in the Hall of Shame is a fate worse than death. I'd still like to comment and participate in discussions when I can. Please know, I did it for the kids.

A great last pic. Whether to shame or not to shame, I leave that task in the able hands of The Great Mackle...

Couldn't be a finer parting shot if indeed it proves to be.

Shame him Mackle . It was the State Senate, and Louisiana at that. Legislative hearings there are only slightly more important than a Jr. high school student counsel meetings.

Damn dude. It sucks that the court system prejudices against whiskers.

As far as reasons for shaving go, this is a solid one.
Good luck!

That's a good cause you're leaving us for... been concerned about the youth concussions thing for a while (reading gladwell and bill simmons and stuff they recommended). Best of luck in your quest!

Torn on the shame. 1) you're doing something great through the proper channels. 2) you are ASKING to stay in with the promise of regrowing.

On the other hand - kind of a smack in the face to moustaches that you shaved in the first place.

On the other OTHER hand - a DTM is like the seedling of a moustache - close but needs nurturing.

On the other other OTHER hand.. I don't know. Gonna think on it. I'll check back later.

Mackle says:
Basically, if you regrow - you can stay. If not, you are shamed but can totally just sign up for a Lurker account and participate without being listed on the homepage.
