from beard-o to....

I think Jordan had been growing his beard since Christmas. First his excuse was that he had school work and claimed he didn't have the time or the energy to shave. Then he decided he couldn't shave because the beard provided a protective layer between his face and the cold when he was running outside. Not that it looked bad or anything, so I couldn't really complain. But, it all that amounted to this:
red-shirt goes beard-o

Quite the majestic facial hair no? (and I like to call the picture "red shirt goes beard-o") But of course when one finally does shave, a little fun is in order. So, we had a day of this:

the irish policeman irish policeman profile
And now, I have to suffer through four days* of this:
creepy moouuustache man kinda scary
At least it makes me laugh!
here we are...moustache and all
Seriously though...I'm only smiling because I can't look at the thing without laughing. Even he admits it is a little weird to go out in public looking like a porn star circa 1978.

*Four days because he teaches a class on Fridays and on Mondays and thus has to subject both of his classes to the moustache.

Please also note, that I know that it is spelled mustache in english...but the french way is so much better AND encompasses how I like to say the word...moo-stache. Also, if you are a friend or family, don't have access to my flickr account and would like to have access, just let me know and I'll grant the access. There are a few more facial hair pics that you might enjoy.

Nice bigote! Amazing how a 'stash instantly makes someone look like a perv!

I would very much like access to your Flickr account.

Also, it's mustache in US English. Moustache (while it may be the French spelling) is the Commonwealth English spelling. It's the whole "ou" vs. "o" thing. Colour, neighbour, etc.

It's also amazing how a moustache makes ones nose appear even larger and longer. Oh and kind of creepy too!!

Oh red shirt. Taylor saw the pictures and said Unkie sure looks funny. She is killing herself laughing. And you do look like a porn star.

No Auntie Faye, dont say it makes his nose look larger and longer, Jordan cannot afford to make his nose stand out more.

that is indeed majestic facial hair!

now does this mean you get to buy pretty things??

I think the best part of this whole thing is that Jordan has a well groomed moustache but unruly hair.

I like how you also tagged it "bigote"... You kill me.

It's a good job 80's porn stars aren't famous for being clean shaven.

I would like to suggest that Jordan not shave for another 3 months, but also not cut his hair for the same time period.

PS - the metallica (aka irish policeman) look is my favourite.

I had to look at those pictures again, and realized how much Jordan looks like Hitler with that moustache. It's a great way to ruin a handsome face.

I'll have to disagree with the Hitler. Porn star? Yes. Child molester? Probably. Creepy? Most definitely. But Hitler? Not so much.
