Behind The Beard

Beards are beautiful. So are the men behind them.
BEARD IN THE WILD #27

GEOFF, Philadelphia, PA: Openly admits that he communicates better with cats than with people. Met George Clooney when he was 9. Was nicknamed “Mr. Happy” as a child. Never used to smile. Still doesn’t very much.

BEARD IN THE WILD #26

TIM, Farmington, MI: Works in IT, but according to his girlfriend he’s a “professional troll.” Has been bearded since middle school (except for a goatee phase in high school). Says his mom likes his beard “more than she should.” We think mother knows best.

NICHOLAS, Oklahoma City, OK: Accountant. Single. Used to be chubby in middle school. Lost the weight from two-a-day football practices (was the kicker). Despite being more successful, lives in the shadow of his star quarterback older brother. Still trying to live down the nickname “Thick Nick.”

JAMIE, New York, NY: The executive assistant (and sole man) in a small marketing firm catering to clients that sell female-centric products. Gentlemanly but not patronizing.  Is considered “almost perfect” by his female coworkers. Loses points for never wearing socks. Often receives Gold Bond as a gag gift in the office Secret Santa swap.

BENEDICT, Oxford, England: Ostensibly a barrister in his grandfather’s practice, but has no real clients or interest in law. Main hobbies include sipping beer slowly from a chilled glass and disappointing his father. Surprisingly, finds tidying his flat relaxing.

THE BRAGGART: Back home for the holidays for the first time in five years. Has a hard time accepting the lack of innovative cuisine in his home town.  Reminds everyone he must leave early to catch his red-eye to London.

BEARD AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY #5

THE DANDY: Meticulous to the point of obsession, this beard planned his festive outfit weeks in advanced. The placement of every hair on his well groomed face and head was a conscious decision skillfully executed. Carefully avoids the crockpot of Swedish meatballs for fear of spilling on his statement piece: the velvet blazer. Is not not ashamed of tucking a paper napkin into his collar while eating.
