The British Beard and Moustache Championships
The gathering celebrated a cornucopia of the most extravagant facial hair from across the UK and around the world – and their fans.
An event I must support – being someone who almost didn’t appear in his high school yearbook until I relented and trimmed my sideburns.
Fortunately, that sort of stupidity has diminished in the job market in this land – over time. I have not been absent a beard since 1979.
