Whether you’re already rocking a full Tom Selleck or have barely entered the Ugly Geraldo stage, the culinary world is filled with delicious yet insidious items that can turn your handsome, follically-enhanced self into the joke of the dinner table.

Trevor also cautions all Movember faithful before embarking on any first dates this month. “I’m not sure what his chances would be, but if you’re meeting a lady for the first time this month and she sticks around, she’s probably marriage material.”

No Mugs of Whipped Cream Whip on a well-groomed moustache is just… unseemly.
Mo’ Travel Lids Get your drink in a to-go cup and cap it with a lid before you take a sip.
