World Beard Championships

06 Nov

Funny; I did a post a year ago today on ‘Movember‘, as it happens…

But this isn’t about that; it’s about a beard contest, the World Beard Championships, held recently in Germany.

Though there was at least one fellow with no beard but an awesome ‘stache.

Here then, just for fun, are some pics of some contestants. Manly AND eccentric; rock that facial hair! 🙂

    It had to come to that, didn’t it?

    What’s next: prostate envy?

    I made the right choice not shaving until the 2-3 week mark. I love the scruff but my mother hates it. Apparently it is lack of manners to not shave.

    Bwwaaaahahahaha. When I read that at work today, I almost sprayed my monitor.

    I can see it now. A guy and a gal on a date and they get into an argument. He starts to taunt her: “nanana – I’ve got a Cowper’s gland and you don’t! nanana”

    @ infowarrior: Is it, now? I guess if you’re still at home, you have to follow your parents’ rules, but once you’re on your own, you won’t. In any case, I never heard any such thing. But you know what? So what if some ‘Emily Post’ / ‘Miss Manners’ etc. type thinks it’s poor manners? What do you think all the bearded men down through history would think of that? 😉

    Is having a beard unscriptural? Of course not!

    Therefore, if it isn’t immoral, who the hell cares what some womenfolk and their artificial codes of ‘manners’ think about it? Screw ’em!

    Women will always try to domesticate men, because they think we’re all savages.

    Screw ’em. When you leave home, you won’t have to obey every single thing your mother says. And because, unlike a wife, you ain’t getting *that* from your mother, she can’t even potentially blackmail you the way a wife can. She can of course try the guilt trip thing; mothers always do…

    But you can learn to ignore that. 🙂

    As for other womenfolk: if you let a woman know how it’s going to be from the get-go, you can grow your beard as you please.

    @ Carnivore: That would be most odd. 🙂

    “Women have penis envy + facial hair envy”

    The first one can’t be helped, but facial hair starts growing sooner than most women like it (unfortunately:), so may be feminists can have their own moustache competition:)

    LOL, true enough. Fortunately, most don’t quite become like this. 🙂
