Is the fact that this is considered a joke the joke?

Unless he has a sign that says this will be a future April Fools' Joke, I am not buying it.

Wow that was um...whatever

The one where he bombed Tokyo was funnier.

Yeah..."longest planned."

Or else he planned it yesterday and just dug up an old photo of himself.

But I guess it's more plausible that he planned an April Fools joke for 15 months.

I must be getting old. This wasn't very funny.

It looks like Sean's idea of humor Doolittle for you.

This must be some of this sports humor I've heard so much about. Classic.

No, that's the point. He didn't shave. Try reading TFA once in awhile.

TLDR, is theire short version of ur comment, LOL?

Shoulda read the exif data.

The joke is that he keeps that disgusting sh*t on his face.

Desperately. I find it infinitely frustrating. I would bet though that my wife is more tired of hearing me complain about it than I am tired of seeing it.

I am sure the "plan" took all of 5 seconds. Now the set up...you could claim THAT took 15 months. I think a time lapse of him shaving it (by taking pics as it grew) would have been a better prank.

As an occasional beard-grower, I don't get this; your hair is neatly trimmed and styled, but not the beard? That's just stupid; show a little pride in your appearance.

/also, his eyes are even more uneven than Shannen Doherty's
//you can't unsee that now
 
2014-04-02 12:00:09 PM  
He's hot with fuzz instead of beard.
 
2014-04-02 12:05:37 PM  
I prefer Surfer Rosa.
 
2014-04-02 12:14:42 PM  
lol... i was about the commend the guy for shaving, and then see that he actually did not.....

Not that there's anything wrong with beards, or even HIS beard, specifically, but when you are doing a non-conformist thing in an effort to conform, it loses its originality... Its like Bieber's arm sleeve tattoos.... 

Everybody and their brother in pro sports are growing beards, and its tired, to me.
 
2014-04-02 01:38:06 PM  
He's a good looking guy clean shaven.  Looks awful with that beard.

/straight male.

Came here to say this.  I think the April Fool's joke is that it's yet another lazy 'journalist' passing off copying and pasting a twitter feed as an article.  Shameful.

Damn, some of you are pretty damn grumpy.

I thought it was cute.
