I’m growing a neckbeard.
Technically, I’m attempting to grow a beard, but I carry the Curse of the Male 455s in that it comes out all patchy and scraggly everywhere but the neck.
Well, the neck and one other area: the 'stache, naturally.
Unfortunately, it’s coming in a couple of shades darker than my normal patchy strawberry blonde, so it’s rather prominent. I look something like a cross between a sloppy hipster, a bum, and a pubescent thug.
Mrs. Maidenname-455, kind soul that she is, refuses to tell me whether I look like a complete idiot or not, so I’m turning to the IMHOes.
In general, when one’s choice in a beard is between the Amish look or what one of the kids in Gummo would look like had they tried to grow one, which way should one swing?
PS: If the consensus is to kill that caterpillar, I don’t necessarily agree to follow it. I’m contemplating going as a Tom of Finland character for Halloween.
