Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (What Is Your Story? What Inspired You To Grow A Beard? Who Is The Man Behind The Beard?) My last real career job was in the golfing industry. Polo shirts galore and business suits every Friday and always shaved. I have always grown a beard when work allowed it and when injuries overcame my ability to play I started growing my beard. I cut it off at one point to ask the bank for money and they turned me down and it had nothing to do with my face. So since that day I have said "to hell with the norms" and will never shave again.

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (What Is Your Story? What Inspired You To Grow A Beard? Who Is The Man Behind The Beard?) I've had a beard for quite a while now and made a bet with my father back in the late 70's about growing a full beard. My EX always wanted me to have the beard and I enjoyed having it. When I met my girlfriend a few years ago she also liked it and I've started growing it longer since my retirement 3 1/2 years ago. Inspired by the series Vikings I asked my lady to braid my beard a certain way and she's been doing it ever since.
