The Amish Are Coming...

NEWSFLASH
There has been an outbreak of Amish solidarity on the UNR campus… not an abandonment of technology, or a bunch of cool hats all over… No. Beards. Big, bushy, scraggling, ‘fro’d out beards.

Good times.

Like the beard on Jaybird's blog?? Are you going to grow one too??!

scoey-d said...

more along the lines of a true Amish beard, almost Lincoln-like - no mustache, & a little more uniform than the pic of the guy jb posted on.

i think i'll grow one if you do :)

I think the only thing I will miss from ole UNR is the people watchin'.

georgia said...

I'd have to take some serious hormone therapy to grow one of those.

frad-ster said...

I guess I'm about 1/2 Amish by the look of my beard :)

David said...

I'm afraid not, Frad. I've seen you in pictures where it appears as though you were posing, allowing someone to make a graven image of you.

...aren't we commanded by God not to trim the corners of our beards? ...we need pastoral guidance on this one...i knew that ZZ Top would one day turn out to be right...

David said...

Do mean about how "every girl's crazy for a sharp dressed man"?

I used to know a guy in the hippie days who had a ZZ Top beard (maybe not quite that long). My memories of him include an old beat-up cowboy hat, him eating lots of honey, and always having bits of food (like carrots) stuck in his beard.

georgia said...
