Start Making Sense Pt 1 - Chinstrap Beards
What in the name of Dr Mop are chinstrap beards all about?
Fair enough if you're a Quaker, Amish or just enjoy dressing like Windy Miller, but anyone else - why?? Even morris dancers don't go gadding around in their ribbons, bows and pig's bladder balloons away from the village green/pub car park. I can understand the solid earthiness of a full beard, even the neatly clipped precision of a 'tache. But chinstraps - why??And the haircut of choice that the chin strapped chap seems favour with his beardy based version of a comb over is usually
A - geometric pudding bowl fringe
B - bald/shaven
Check out the hyperkinetic ball of sexual tension that is Jospeh here,this is all genuine with no tweakage (apart from the italics)
"I grew my beard because I got bored with being the clean cut look and figured it would be interesting -- plus when some of the women at work complained too much,
what did he do?
"I knew I was onto something- they may deny it, but we all know they love it. ;)"
Not sure I like the no means yes tone there J
"Can't have a mustache though, because I am a tuba player, The downside is that it is freaking hot in summer - "
Aaaaaahh - so that'll be why you're naked in a photo booth then?
"the upside is that I spend winters in Finland, where it works great at keeping the wind off my cheeks. :) "
Upside for who - your Floridian neighbours, the girls at work - surely not the good people of Finland who get Oddbod flying in for a full winters worth of tooting on his tuba.?
So there you go forget Facebook, Bebo and other social networking sites Beards.org is where the hot action is frying tonight.
