Another reason beards are awesome.

  1. Oct 11, 2011 #1
    Hello!

    Beards are awesome. There is no denying that a beard is the ultimate symbol, for men and women, of awesomeness. The most awesome and legendary of beards, is of course, that of Karl Marx. This is fact. Karl Marx's beard is also, although not fact but supported by strong evidence, believed to have had magical powers.

    Exhibit A: Karl Marx's beard.

    I bring this up because today, walking past a building site; some, erm, 'person', left out a massive sheet of MDF leaning against a 'side support' which had a kind of opening with grating in it. This was on a walkway that went upwards on a steep slope, and therefore was quite high. It was windy, and this, combined with the open grating and the altitude, allowed the wind to sweep up the board and it hit me in the face and broke in half. Thats right. I broke a big sheet of MDF in half WITH MY FACE. It hurt.
    I subsequently went to the nurses office; and the nurse, who was very nice, on observing that the cuts I sustained were not too bad, remarked that :"I think your beard saved you".

    Another reason beards are awesome.

    I thought beards were a sign that the owner was embarrassed by a weak chin. Are you going to tell me I've had that wrong all these years? Hard to believe. :smile:

    My beard maybe older than most of the folks on PF. I haven't shaved since May, 1981.

    I never did like shaving or wearing cologne.

    Chuck Norris doesn't shave. His beard grows to the perfect length and stops.

    (Besides, what known metal could possibly cut through Chuck Norris's beard?)

    Those are some awesome beards; and if you don;t mind me saying, sir, you have a mighty fine beard yourself. If god had a beard, it would be like yours.
    Marx has a square beard, not many people can grow a square beard, plus his moustache demands a respect all of its own, independent of the beard, but at the same time in a single unified whole.

    Something analogous to the The Handlebar Club of London:
    "The qualification for membership is:
    "a hirsute appendage of the upper lip, with graspable extremities"", however, "in addition, we specify that beards are not allowed."
    A rival beard club is in order. My beard is young and nascent; but, with care, attention and sage guidance from fellow bearded men, it will grow.

    Epic beard Dave.
