    Jell-O can't stop slippery sales slide

    Jell-O has lost its jiggle and nobody knows how to fix it. The dessert was invented more than a century ago and helped popularize a delicacy reserved for the rich into a quick, affordable treat. Yet despite its enduring place in pop culture, sales have tumbled 19 percent in the past four years, with alternatives such as Greek yogurt surging in popularity.

Yet despite its enduring place in pop culture, sales have tumbled 19 percent in the past four years, with alternatives such as Greek yogurt surging in popularity.

While Movember is usually an event dominated by hairy men, one British woman has decided to join in on the competition.

Sarah O'Neill from East Riding in England has a condition known as polycystic ovary syndrome, which causes her to grow unwanted facial hair.  Normally, she uses a doctor prescribed facial cream to get rid of the hair, but for the month of November, she has decided to ditch her medicine in order to grow out a mustache and beard, the Daily Star reported.

O'Neill said she participating in Movember in order to raise awareness about her syndrome.

"I had to accept that it was a medical condition that was just part of me," O'Neill said. "I now realize it's nothing to be ashamed of. I want people to understand I'm not trying to be a man and that my facial hair is something that can't be helped."

A mash up of "mustache" and "November," Movember is an international charity event that lasts throughout  November.  During the month, men ditch their razors and grow out their mustaches to raise awareness for men's health issues.
