Movember is basically a month-long competition with Nick Offerman to support prostate and testicular cancer (somewhat similar to No Shave November). Get involved! Also, the movie poster and trailer for Oz: the Great and Powerful has been released!
In celebration of the new season of fall television, we ran the numbers to find out what kind of vacation some of our favorite characters could afford to take if they spent six percent of their fictional salaries on travel.
