Current World Beard Champ – 2.5 years to grow and 90 minutes to weave
David Traver from Alaska has beaten 300 other competitors from around the globe during last weekend’s 2009 World Beard and Moustache Championships.
His beard, dyed several colors and woven into the shape of a snowshoe, beat out more than 140 others to become the coolest beard in the world. He took home a commemorative gold pan and a salmon fishing trip.
And now he’s going to shave it off.
Once a man’s reached the apex of facial hair, there’s nowhere to go but down, he said. He’ll shave for whoever writes the biggest check to Covenant House, he said.
Now let’s have a look shall we?
