Oh god, yes. I have made a personal commitment never again to have an intimate relationship with a man with facial hair. It covers up too much of their personality. And also, it tickles.

In more way than one, if you know the alternative meaning more beard

MY moustache feels slighted.

Not too crazy about beards. I do love mustaches. They tickle also, but just a little bit. It's kinda nice. Don't feel slighted Hale.

maybe a weapon too? My dad used to rub his whiskers on my face when I was little, that sh*t hurt, but he meant no harm, just tease.

Camo hmmmm, it'd work in the dark.

Ally, heeeeeeee, never thought about it that way.

Jo said...

Yes. Could never have one (thereagain, I'd look pretty bizarre if I did!), could never kiss someone with one...

'Beard' - also one who covers up for someone else, in situations where you might be up to no good. As in 'He's my beard'.

fineartist said...

Beards also serve as camo for wrinkles and jowls.

That's it! I need me a beard.

Naaaa, just kidding, I kinda like the way aging reveals bone structure.

Got to remain positive, don't we?

word verification, kfc, makes me hungry for the colonel's chicken, do they have Kentucky fried chicken restaurants in England? Might be called brigadier's chicken over there.

Hi Lori

Ni we have KFC here, (with the silly old US Colonel in his silly white suit).

Affectionately known to we the underclass as Kentucky Fried Pigeon

- although if you live in Hounslow, West London, that would be Kentucky Fried Rat on account of how and why Environmental Health closed the first Hounslow branch down - ooh, thirty years ago.

Beard as camouflage? Damn, sussed!

Atyllah said...

Unquestionably. They're also a good place to keep your lunch - or leftovers from breakfast...

I thought "beard" meant specifically a woman who covers for a gay man by pretending to be his lover? But what do I know (or care, since I detest covers of any kind?)

Brighton's Gay Pride event features no nudity?!?!?!?! Poor Beanpole was dragged to the Pride Festival/Parade in Toronto a few years back; didn't mind the parade, but took issue with the bare tits.

I have a problem with the concept of pride -- as in, "pride goeth before a fall." How about Gay Lack of Shame Week? That, I would support 110%.

I just wish Moose would shave. Damned beard makes him look all hot, sweaty and unemployable -- never mind he's got a decent job. The mohawk is fine; the beard I could live without.

Now what the foook's a hoodie? Is that a mohawk?

Are you trying to tell me that Moose is GAY?

Oy! The Man has a beard, and very nice it is, too. I insisted that he should grow it when he didn't shave for a couple of weeks when he got sick, a couple of years after we met. It was a revelation. It grew in grey, and aged him at least ten years. I was SO pleased. He has NO RIGHT to look twenty years younger than he is and make people think I have a boy toy. He is more than ten years OLDER than me, for crying out loud.

I'm a great fan of his beard. It's just a short one, and doesn't hide much, but that sprinkling of grey does the job I want it to do nicely.

(I'm not kidding about the 20 years thing. I remember in pre-beard days someone asking him which university he was at, which meant they thought he was between 18 and 22. He was 40.)
