Why the hell is facial hair supposed to be so ironically hilarious? Please tell me. I don't get it.

So that's what cosplay for hipsters looks like...

I could participate should I decide to shape/style my back hair.
/hello ladies

Some great facial hair. But the photography was really the star here. Really nice work.

Why keep the chin shaved?

Number 7 is Matthew Crawley's dastardly twin James.

I have a beard. It is not a "lifestyle choice" it's freaking facial hair. My beard isn't "art" it's freaking facial hair. I didn't grow it for competition, it's freaking facial hair. I look more mike Mr. Belvadier than Duck Dynasty and I'm OK with that.

/Like having a puppy on your face.

LiberalConservative: Why keep the chin shaved?




For some of us older bearded guys, it's the only part that goes gray.

My facial hair is far too thin to pull off any of those and I'm envious.

Epic?

I sometimes wonder if any of those guys in strict Muslim countries are secretly wearing their facial hair ironically.

Didn't think of that. Thanks. Guess could use hair dye.

Subby's choice of words was epic.

As an engineer who has to be 'professional' to maintain employment I find myself in the odd position of being envious of these gentlemen.  Not because I want to grow weird facial hair. To have the option of dressing/grooming how I like, rather than trying to fit into some silly idea of how I should look, would be nice.

Great.
What the world needs now.
MORE CONCEITED MEN.

It will be EPIC when all you motherfarkers stop using the word EPIC!

*Does not apply to literature discussions where an actual epic is involved.

This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen in my life.  Why not have a mole contest? Maybe a nose hair championship?

Because of the 70s.

Eh, none of those are a patch on Elmar Weiss:

Yes, that's a windmill.
And besides, these are just the nationals. Worlds don't happen until November in Germany. That's when the real talent comes out.

This thread is full of "stop liking what I don't like"

There are multiple television shows, national, regional, and world competitions for beards and mustaches.

The world has already determined the importance of your opinion on it's value. Deal with it.

Right?
beard clubs and comps are just fun. and almost all of them are run as fund raisers for various charities.

My beard look like #10 only it is about half as long and half as wide (le sigh). I wished it looked like #5 though. To me that is the awesome beard; he just needs a helmet with horns.

Well I for one love it. Men are able to grow beards, and I don't understand they hate if they choose to do so. A well groomed beard is awesome and I wish there were more. (Untended growth as a result of laziness however, is not attractive. But then slovenly untended looks are never attractive anyway.)

/can't grow one

As an engineer myself, I hear ya.  It's a sea of khaki and golf shirts around the office; lucky I do some field work.  I can keep the beard (if I keep it short), but even that's got to go if I need a face mask for a VOC/asbestos/sour gas site.
