Book Your Hotel Now!

The 2005 World Beard and Mustache Competition is coming up soon! It will take place in Berlin on October 1rst of this year. Book your hotel room now, I'm sure they will all be full for the entire week within a few months.

Here is the 2001 competition in which I competed. I had a very different appearance then though. See if you can guess which one is me!

Here is a National Geographic story about my friends in the Swabian Beard Club.

My oh me, I'm so excited! I'm going to go apply my patented tonic right now!


Thanks to boing-boing for the timely reminder.

I have sent these sites to the first-year men for inspiration... April 2005 is the month of the first-year law student facial hair grow-off. Participants will be judged on the following categories, and any other points the judges deem relevant at the time: originality, aggression, style, sex appeal and lack of sex appeal.

Oh, and your comments on my blog make breakdancing sound really appealing.

perhaps you could honour your humble readers with a small daguerreotype featuring your marvelously masculine moustache?

Ah, dearest me. You have made a wonderful and in all estimations well-intentioned suggestion. However, I have discovered that I will be unable to post the aforementioned dagguerotype, because were I to post said dagguerotype there would be UNFORESEEN CONSEQUENCES. I was well on the way to fulfilling your request, in that, I had asked Alphonso to do it for me, when I discovered that for the first time ever he firmly disagreed with my suggestion.

Alphonso reads all my correspondences and condenses them into a weekly memorandum for my benefit. He was convinced that were I to post such an image on the interweb, he would be instantly and immediately inundated with a vast excess of electronic and paper mail from the fairer sex, offering up their lovely selves to my lovely self. He said he would be unable to complete his other duties if it were necessary for him to read through all of these missives. He went so far as to threaten to quit.

I must admit, I would be quite useless without Alphonso, and while I am not averse to the idea of drowning in well-crafted proclamations of adoration, I had to accept his position and refrain from posting the thrice-forementioned dagguerotype.

My deepest apologies.

In that case, I will have to comfort myself with the dreamy face that I have pieced together from your writings…platinum-encased teeth, blackened by the zestful ingestion of life itself, and a tongue reddened by the blood of the earth, freed by the finest French feet.
