13/03/2008 by Natalie Tsirimokos

They’re not Tom Selleck look-alikes, they’re proud Movember ambassadors. Andrew Barr, Minister for Tourism, Sports and Recreation, Ross Solly, 666 ABC breakfast announcer and Peter Barclay, King O’Malleys Irish Pub owner, all pulled out their best stick-on mo's, when the month-long charity event was launched earlier this week. The event has sparked awkward upper lip fuzz on mo-bros around the country, from flamboyant boonie styled, to well kempt Selleck wannabes.
