Better beards, magnificent mustaches
By Kaylee Drinville, fearless intern [ Tue May 17 2011 11:04 AM ]
As most folks are aware, the World Beard and Moustache Championships 2011 are going on in Norway. Wait, you didn't know? The United States won an impressive six gold medals, including one in the largest, most fiercely competitive category: Full Beard Natural.
However, top prize went to Germany's Elmar Weisser; he received the honor of best beard. His luscious beard, styled to look like a reindeer, flew right over the competition.
A total of about 150 contestants competed in 14 different categories, from Natural Moustache to Musketeer. Beard Team USA sent a respectable 35 representatives to the world championships. Sadly, there is no chapter in New Mexico. Interested in starting one?

Public radio über-nerd/hunk Ira Glass grew a beard
By Laura Marrich [ Fri Feb 4 2011 5:20 PM ]
His milieu being radio and all, the host of “This American Life” may well have been sporting face fur for a while now–but Current TV just added this video to its website last week.
When I stand back and look at the elements at play here, I’m kind of shocked at how much cuter I’m finding Ira Glass with shades of Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof at the forefront. But there you have it. I am firmly on the “yay” side of this look. What say you, Alibi readers—thumbs up or down on the beard?
