Tom's Beard

Foo,

Like all of you here in Foo, I love Tom and think the world of him. I know you would all agree with me by saying he's a good man and a great fellow Fooster. His beard however, not so much. It actually frightens me. Anyway, who here is afraid of Tom’s beard?

I'm not afraid of the beard itself...just what hides inside of it.

I think it's really a furry animal that is just living on his chin.

I saw a pic of it the other day, I swore I saw a small tree growing out of it.

Love the beard! I won't shave mine off, and would never consider suggesting another do that.

There's a family guy episode that comes to mind every time I see Tom's beard. I'm pretty sure there is a nest of young birds living in there.

So far it looks like the beard is safe. I may need to get ACORN in here.

Why?



Being that I sport some generous facial hair myself, I'm voting in favour of Tom's beard.

I grew a beard once or twice and decided I preferred being clean-shaven. My dad, however, changes facial hair configurations several times a year, to the point where it confuses the security guards at work. Thanks to genetics, we both have pretty fast-growing facial hair.

So... I can not begrudge Tom his beard.

Tis better to have the world think that you are ugly under all that hair, than to remove all doubt...

Only Tom knows what lies under all that hair, it might even be Jimmie Hoffa!

Couch, you really should not sniff another man's beard. It simply is not cricket, old chap.

It is best that you leave it at that Tude. There are some things you are better not knowing about the so called Supreme Rullah.............
