Good-Bye Beards

For the past three weeks, I didn't listen to live music and men didn't shave. For the past (about) nine days, I didn't listen to live music, men didn't shave, we couldn't to laundry, no one ate meat, and some people didn't shower (gasp!). Yesterday we mourned the destruction of both Batia Mikdash by fasting, sitting on low chairs, not washing, and being smelly.

After chatzos (midday) today, everything changes. I know I'm supposed to be sad during the three weeks and happy afterwards (Shabbos Nachamu, anyone?), but I just can't bring myself to feel wholly happy now that the three weeks are over because I have to say good-bye to the beards.

Yes, I love beards. I was speaking to a friend last night (formerly the spokesperson for my Bring Back Beards Campaign*) who remarked, "oh, so you must love Sean Connery." In fact, I don't. Sean Connery may have a beard, but he's an older man. Beards on older men are just older men beards. Beards on young men are hot. There's no denying that something like this isn't amazingly gorgeous. Why are beards on younger guys hot? I don't know, but they are.

If you'd like to join my Bring Back Beards Campaign and open a chapter where you are, feel free to let me know...We already have chapters in both Florida and Oregon! Please note, however, that position of Mascot has already been taken.

*It was amazing while it lasted, but all good things must come to an end. Thanks for the Beard of Hotness while it was here.

Oh Steeeeve, I wish I could give you a position, but it's not a club for people with facial hair--it's for beards. Grow out your whole beard, not just a goatee and you'd become the NY (Headquarters) Chairperson!
Sorry Dindels, we have nothing in Brooklyn. Of course, if Steve were to grow out his beard, and Dima were to allow his to grow back, we might be onto something. :)
