I’ve had a few beard-related links sent to me that past couple of weeks, so in the interests of reintroducing some levity to this all of a sudden, oh so serious blog, here they are…
The slightly dubious ‘Better with a beard’, a collection of pictures leading you to compare and contrast famous men in a bearded and shaven state. The idea is you conclude with the author that they all look ‘better with a beard’. Actually, I’m not fully convinced it does work for all of them. Of page one is anything to go on, it should be better described as ‘hide your ageing saggy jowls with a beard’.
Nevertheless, there is this gem – the deeply unattractive (to me) David Schwimmer, is suddenly miraculously transformed into some kind of man-god with the addition of neatly trimmed facial hair.
Sometimes beards really can make all the difference.
Then there are famous (if slightly over-) bearded authors, courtesy of the Telegraph.
And the result of looking at this image on a Tumblr page dedicated to the Crushing Self-doubt of actor Jon Hamm, led to this Google search result…
Hours of Friday happiness, right there.
