I did that one time, but I went to the barber twice and got it trimmed, and it looked 10x better for it.

That's weird. It takes Scientologists at least 18 years to grow Tom Cruise a beard.

Big deal. I went 15 months without manscaping; looked like I was farking a tumbleweed.

Now the armpits I just braided. They looked awesome.

When I'm 'not shaving' I still wave the trimmers around my face to slice off the strays.

A prime example of where phrasing makes the article.

"Man doesn't shave for 15 months!" makes for a better, albeit still utterly pointless story than "Man grows scraggly beard!"  It just needed "You won't believe what he looks like now!" for that chef's kiss clickbait title.

I refuse to scrub the protective layer from my teeth and gums.

My brother went so long without trimming his beard he was offered a job working with Unix.  He politely informed the guy that he was, in fact, a homebrewer.

Well, that will certainly make people adhere to social distancing protocols.

I took off my pandemic beard last month when I got my second shot.

My hair gets longer than that if I go three months without a haircut.

Starting on year 4 for me. Some days I get Jesus - other days I get Charles Manson.

I don't recommend manscaping before farking a tumbleweed; you need a bit of cushioning for protection.

And oddly, it's 19 years younger than him

14 months? It take me half as long to look like that. I am retired and lazy so I have pre-pandemic experience with that sort of thing.

If you haven't see what a Farker did during the pandemic, in addition to the beard, it is outstanding.

Makes my 12kg weight gain over the same time seem less noteworthy.

I can't grow facial hair. I recently had some bad cuts on my face after I fell into a thorn bush (hornet attack) and so didn't shave for a week. At the end of the week you couldn't tell. 12 year old Puerto Rican boys and Italian grandmothers have better mustaches than what I "grew".

I know this is a stereotype, but not all of us have beards.  I don't, and neither does a friend who recently got officially Linux certified.[0]  OTOH, one of the better sysadmins I've known had a beard you could hatch a California condor in.  OTGH, when I was unable to shave for a week, I looked frighteningly fuzzy.

[0] Despite my track record, I don't have an official certification.  However, the first kernel module patch I wrote compiled, booted, and fixed the bug on the first try.

I haven't shaved since 1 Nov 2002...That's the day I retired from the Air Force...My beard looks similar to the above pic of David Letterman although not gray....occasionally I'll take out the scissors and knock off 1/2 an inch, but I have no plans to ever shave again.
Last year during the pandemic,  there was a big meeting at work,  we were doing some work in hospitals and everyone would be required to shave and fitted for respirators. Several of my co workers started glancing my way...
Afterwards they asked if there were any questions, I raised my hand and asked  "Do you want a 2 week notice or my immediate resignation ".
I still work there, turns out we had plenty of already clean shaven employees to do that job.

Look, and this is just my opinion, but most dudes with beards would look better without one or at least knocking it down with a #2 guard.

And a beard is no substitute for a jawline!
