To start your day off on quite a sombre note we’ve decided to run a story about the European Beard and Moustache Championships 2012 (come on, lighten up, it’s Friday- not like we’re going to talk about Juilus Malema or starving children in other parts of Africa). Well yeah- these dudes take facial rather seriously to the point where they groom their face fluff to look majestic and flowing like the mane of a Rastafarian lion.
The small community of Wittersdorf in France plays host to what is possibly one of the strangest events ever- the European Beard and Moustache Championships, where Europe’s best growers meet for a facial hair face-off. Below, you can see the finalists of the competition that took place earlier this week… WHAT. THE. SHIT?!
