Beard is the new Mustache

via swiss miss

I have been meaning to post this for a while (via the superb Swiss Miss who garnered it from the Beard Revue).

Did you know that there’s a beard and mustache championship with their own website? Oh and blog too?!

Here’s a doctored photo I found of Obama with a beard….strange. I hope he doesn’t get stressed out too much during his presidency and wind up looking like this.

    Glad you enjoyed! I found his bird photos on 20×200 but like these SO much more. Tried to buy a few but just couldn’t shell out the big bucks. Maybe one day…

    it’s perfect for a chuckle….but might dangerously inspire your husband to grow huge chops and a stache.

    I don’t have prints of the beard chart, but I do have a brand spankin’ new, technicolor, Glaser-esque beard print you can get. I think you guys might love it. Check it out here.

    send over a picture if you would like for me to post it. Who knows maybe you’ll get scouted by a moustache team somewhere?!
