Your Beard Madness Champion


The bets have been made. The games have been played. The facial hair has been displayed. And the Beard Madness champion is...Dad in the Early '80s! It was a riveting tournament, with many hairy moments. Here are some of the highlights.

Round one: Dumbledore and Gandalf go into overtime. Gandalf is cheered on by more fervently nerdy fans, but Dumbledore is victorious when his beard sells more books. Meanwhile, Kenny Rogers forfeits after testing positive for beard-enhancing drugs. Round Two: Jesus defeats Darwin. This should not be seen as a triumph of religion over science. Instead, it's a victory for proper beard maintenance. Darwin was just so unkempt. Semifinals: Dad defeats Fidel Castro, as Castro's cigar explodes in the final seconds, causing extensive facial hair damage. A massive upset! The finals: J.K. Rowling got it wrong. Snape did not defeat Dumbledore - Dad in the Early '80s defeated Dumbledore. Here's the final bracket:

This is great. My dad didn't have a beard in the early '80s. Just a new wife and a speedo with a rainbow on it.

This is great! My dad never had a beard. But, my step dad had a mustache from hell. That's what we used to call my step-dad actually, Mustache from Hell.

I must say that I'm dissapointed about Gandalf loosing out against Dumpledore. Uugh! I shouldn't make an outrage... but Gandalf is a true hero! (With or without the beard.)

Word of the day: pogonotrophy, "the act of cultivating, or growing and grooming, a mustache, beard, sideburns or other facial hair"

My dad had a moustache in the late 70s. And the photographic evidence is scary and hilarious......

Update: My dad informs me that this picture was likely taken in the mid '70s, not early '80s. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
ashamed italian: Pogonotrophy sounds like an easy college major that will still look good on a future law school application.
