    I had a beard in my teens and twenties. An Arafat. Patchy. Finally gave up and just had a cow-catcher mustache for a long time. But when the Indicted Coach look went out, I shaved it off.

    Then I gave up and started shaving every day. Kept it up till I retired. Now I often skip a day. On us Arafats, one day of stubble doesn't show. And it saves on soap and water.

    But my wife likes better it when I do it daily. She's never had to leave me a snarky diagram, though.

    Maybe. But how do we get our facial hair on a donkey's ass without putting our faces on a donkey's ass?

    Talk about dancing cheek to cheek . . . .

    Maybe it's like the old joke where the elephant asks for the soap.

    I’m between Santa and Zeus. Been growing it for 6 years. Looks awesome when I first wake up in the morning.

    Hadda beard fer 45 years. Shaved it once for a 50's gig. Once was enough. Short now but been long. No wormuns ever complained, an neither have they praised it. Gits dandruff a bit at times in my ol age, but that passes. Despite my years, head hair still goin good w/ color too, but m'whiskers are white.

    Roald Dahl had the final word on beards for me in The Twits

    View attachment 634110

    She missed Cousin Itt:

    - Two elephants are taking a bath. One says, "Please pass the soap." The other one says, "No soap. Radio!"

    - What's the difference between an elephant and a grape? A grape is purple.

    - What did Tarzan say when he saw the elephants coming over the hill? "Here come the elephants over the hill!"

    - What did Jane say when she saw the elephants coming over the hill? "Oooh! Look at all those grapes!" (She was color-blind.)

    - How can you tell if an elephant has been in your refrigerator? Footprints in the butter.


    You're obviously not a child of the sixties. The elephant joke is dead.

    Looks like Cousin Itt didn't attach. I'll try again:

    I’m a blond with a very light beard. No side burns to speak of. I’ll buzz what I have every other week. I can’t shave due to the thin blood I have. Mustache, soul patch, scruffy goatee all kept trimmed short, neck is buzzed. Mostly still blond but the beard is white.
    Not folicaly challenged.

    There are two kinds of people who don’t have a beard. Women and children. :lol:
