9/29/2005: Beard and mustache championships



Axlrosen suggests some images from the world Beard and Mustache Championships gallery and from a past BBC gallery of the 2003 event. The world championship is on Saturday and we will see if anyone can best the 03 champ shown above. And below.





They do have different categories. Above is the "freestyle" winner of 03.

I have facial hair but it is sparse... nothing like this. Did you know there are 17 recognized styles? I did not. Apparently the Germans usually win. The US team has a blog.

Is that richlevy up there?



SteveDallas  Thursday Sep 29 09:27 AM

I'm damn near clean-shaven by comparison.



mitheral  Thursday Sep 29 12:23 PM

I'd love to grow a beard like the last guy and I've got the genes to do it. However I can't get past the scrathcy/itchy phase at about 3-4 weeks despite several gung-ho attempts during college.



wolf  Thursday Sep 29 01:21 PM

Slang came really close to that once ...

One of my high school teachers had a beard that was just a tad (probably several tads) shorter than that one.



lawman  Thursday Sep 29 02:06 PM

Um... anyone else have an issue with the following statement from the USA Blog?

"Germany, which will be fielding at least 85 contestants, is the dominant world power in this sport."

Not only that, there are dozens of beard clubs throughout the world - espeically in Germany. e.g. http://www.handlebarclub.org.uk/linksc.htm (I also like their FAQ..)

Seems like it would be hard to do everyday things with this much facial hair. It would damn near have to be an obsession. Unless you sent hygiene to hell in a handbasket. Differn't strokes.... I'll keep shaving 1-2 times daily so I can live with myself.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Sep 29 06:25 PM

Damn hippies.



Happy Monkey  Thursday Sep 29 06:36 PM

Freshman year I stopped shaving, and grew a full beard. Even after the itchy phase, it was a huge annoyance, with tangles, scratchiness, hairs everywhere, etc. I shaved it off after I had used it to freak out my family during the holidays.



Griff  Thursday Sep 29 06:57 PM

I'm down to the thinnest sole patch now. I couldn't bear the thought of being clean shaven. BTW the dude in the top photo with the silver gray jacket is my pop-in-laws twin. Maybe he'll defend Americas honor next year.



busterb  Thursday Sep 29 07:40 PM

I saw 2 guys in Hardee's today that could have been in the running. Humm let me see if can find a photo of me and beard.



busterb  Thursday Sep 29 07:45 PM

Almost 20 years ago. Made at 119 G. St. Apt D Belle Chasse, LA.



Leah  Thursday Sep 29 08:53 PM

All I can say is



Bullitt  Thursday Sep 29 10:01 PM

I don't think mine would get me past the qualifing rounds..



richlevy  Thursday Sep 29 10:41 PM

My beard is a little more under control than the last guy. BTW, if you have a really bushy beard, 'helmet hair' does not go well with it. Get a perm or even an afro.



Happy Monkey  Thursday Sep 29 11:16 PM

Here's me in the beard and a Scout uniform!
(I had my Eagle ceremony during the holidays freshman year)



Clodfobble  Thursday Sep 29 11:41 PM

You had a beard like that your freshman year of high school? (Or was it college? I thought you couldn't get your Eagle badge after 18....)



Happy Monkey  Friday Sep 30 12:06 AM

College. I passed my Court of Honor the night before I left for college, and had the ceremony when I came back for the holidays.

Well since everyone seems to be getting into the act, here's one of my favorite pictures of my great grandfather taken while out on a picnic stroll in Foochow, China about 1907.

Nice beard gramps!

Not a tailgate party. Not anti-glare makeup. They're just trying to disguise the guy on the left's BLACK EYE.


Lizsun  Friday Oct 7 08:29 AM

Who wants to hide behind all of that facial hair?
