Have you ever seen pictures of the truly original, often luxuriant, occasionally ridiculous but always flamboyant beards that many men sported during the American Civil War? It was one thing North and South had in common, and I never thought I’d be able to see such monuments of facial hair in real life, not without a time machine. Well, I had a chance on August 10th, but I missed it. I really, really, really hope they do it again next year. I sincerely believe that something this silly could probably only happen in America (ok, I guess maybe in England; they invented Monty Python after all). The Love For the Beard – North vs South Beard and Moustache Competition was held for the first time this year, and all the proceeds went to charity. Bravo, Beardimus Maximus!
