Happy Movember!

The bots at Robot Entertainment are showing their human side this month of Movember –  a time of manly moustache growing! That’s right, the bots, or “mobots” are taking up the Movember challenge by growing moustaches for the month of November. Yes this yearly event is news to me too but apparently it has been running since 1999 according the the Movember wikipedia entry having been started by a group of men in South Australia. Since then the yearly event has grown in awareness and now takes place in a whole bunch of countries such as Canada, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States. There is some blurb on the official website as follows:

Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st  clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month.  The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men.  Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days

A whole bunch of Robot’s have committed to the cause – 25 bots in fact! The mugshots of day 1 can be found below. If you fancy a quick game you can play spot the Robot. How many of the bots can you name from the below? If you keep your eyes peeled you should be able to spot the community bots Justin Korthof and Duncan Stanley in there!
