World Beard and Moustache Championships 2011

Second Place in Freestyle Beard 2011 (can you believe this is only 2nd?!)

In case you were unaware, last week (May 11) was the World Beard and Moustache Championships! I actually keep up with them a bit since I mention them in my illustrious best-selling mini-comic "10 Things To Do With a Fake Moustache" (it's part of number nine).

This year, the US took six gold medals, but they haven't really posted the details about everything yet, since I imagine everyone is still getting back from their Beard Tour of Norway (not even kidding, that's what they called it!)

I have to say that my favorite is the freestyle categories.

Freestyle Moustache Category Description:
All moustaches that do not match other classes. The hairs are allowed to start growing from up to a maximum of 1.5 cm beyond the end of the upper lip.
Aids are allowed. <----- Not sure what this means, but AWESOME!

So, I'll be needing to update my mini-comic to once again be accurate (until I can make mini-comics out of psychic paper). In the meantime, if you need some moustache tomfoolery, here's a Category by Category Analysis of the World Beard and Moustache Championships and my favorite picture of me with a moustache:
