After growing wild and free for 18 days, the beard of a Boca Raton man died at 8:55 local time. Mourners who gathered Wednesday morning said that although its life was cut short, it was a life worth celebrating. Born June 11, the beard got to see seven states over the course of two weeks and the United States’ entire World Cup run. Although many wished it would have lived longer, police say the man whom the beard belonged to was inspired to commit beardicide following an incident at work last night. The motive is still unknown, though witnesses believe it all started when the suspect’s friend and manager referred to him as “Osama bin Laden”.
I love this! And now I’m seriously considering doing an obituary for my beard when I shave it this weekend.
In a stunning move by the Vatican, the classic Dan Aykroyd-John Belushi comedy film “The Blues Brothers” was declared a “Catholic classic” alongside more pious films such as “The Ten Commandments” and “The Passion of the Christ.”
