Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron says he's totally in favor of a campaign to have men grow moustaches in November in a show of solidarity meant to combat cancers that affect men.

But that moustache will remain missing on Cameron's upper lip — even if it is "Movember,"an annual monthlong event to raise awareness and funds to fight prostate and testicular cancers.

Cameron praised lawmakers taking part in the campaign during Wednesday's session, saying he had notice that "a number of my colleagues suddenly resembling banditos and others on these benches."

But Cameron says that it isn't something he's "fully capable of myself."
