Beard of the Week


Beards at the Aquarium: Tasteful or Tasteless?

The aquarium can be a fascinating place.  When I went to one, I saw lots of sights.    It reminded me that we are not alone in this bearded universe.  We aren’t even alone on this planet.  We aren’t even alone when put against things that you would never have expected to grow beards.  Surprisingly, our nether neighbors have sprouted many a fine whisker.

Does a beard look good without a full head of hair? Despite what your friends in the pen think, the answer is no.

There have always been a few people that like that beard/cueball look, but this is decidedly uncool. That is, unless you are into being a Nazi. Undoubtedly, this is still uncool.

The latest celeb to consider this shaved-head/beard trend has been our Friend John Travolta, but he gets away with it (just barely) by opting for a goatee.

So don’t try this at home. Period.

The Great Shave

By Stephen Q. Buckley

Why beards?

A Beard is one of the greatest things a man can own. It costs nothing, you don’t have to do anything to have one, and it’s a great way to prove you’re a man.

Shaving is a hassle. It makes your skin itchy and can increase the noticability of zits on your face. Ever see a guy with a beard that has zits ? nope. They’re under the beard! Unless they’re on his nose and forehead. But either way, he has less visible zits if he sports a beard.

Is it spiritual?
Yes. Beard growing is zen. It requires patience and no-mind in order to get past the initial itch and it is a method of escape from the everyday toil of a shave.
