My fourth wife is growing a Fu Man Chu at the corners of her mouth, but I love her anyway.

Well, most of her, anyway.

At least the parts of her worth having.

FTA: However Salafists - the ultraconservative fundamentalist Muslims - like to let their beards grow long and wild

Is it just me or do unkempt beards look filthy?

My brothers are/were beard guys.  One did the long hair/Jesus beard combo.  One did it to declare once and for all his bowing out of the rat race, and the other is just an extreme redneck.

When I had very long hair, I would tie it under my chin sometimes, like those ladies in the norse legend.  It looked stupid.
 
2013-02-02 02:34:16 AM  
Cool beard bro: Have only shaved my beard off completely one time in the last 12 years. And that was only cause I forgot to put the guard back on the trimmer while trimming. Buzzed down to the cheek, so off it all came. Wind and air in general is a weird feeling after so long!  Luckily my 1/8 to 1/4 inch beard is a renewable resource, and was back to normal in a week.

/Irish red, brown, blonde, and increasing with age, some white. My beard has it all:)>

Defiantly not, although I think the movie the Bad News Bears mess me up. Yes I tried watching it several years back and I couldn't figure out what it was I liked but of course at that time I was that age so the lead guy and the lead girl both appealed to my prepubescent brain I guess because that movie sucked.

Don't know if I've ever seen Gumball Rally but thanks for picking up my blank mind for cannonball. Truthfully I hate 70's movie and it's all because I saw them originally. And by that I mean in the theater the 70's were to much and I was a kid but it scared me for life.

A few years ago I let my beard grow out to about 6-7 inches, full and bushy. I told the office I was in my Islamic phase, and they should address me as Mark Mohammed Aziz Atchoo.

It looked damm good with my top hat when I foxhunted. Totally Edwardian. I then shaved it down to Muttonchops for a while, then eliminated the beard and settled for a nice full Wilfred Brimley handlebar, which also looks awesome with the western wear I wear to the office. Soak it down with hairspray in the morning, comb it out, shape it, stiffen it with the blow dryer and I'm good to go.

I believe my mustache has achieved sentience, having grown hair all the way back into neural matrix of my frontal cortex, and it protects itself by preventing me from even thinking about shaving it off...
