The commentors in this post about my mustache and its raison d’ętre are right—I’m a jackass for neglecting to mention that this devastatingly dapper fellow…
…is Burke Kenny, the 22-year-old Olympia gentleman who, this very week, won top marks at the World Beard and Moustache Championship in Brighton, England.
After four years of nurturing his full beard and mustache with a meticulous daily regimen (which includes scrubbing it with Grandpa’s Pine Tar soap, paddle brushing and trimming split ends), Kenny’s own facial hair was deemed some of the best on the planet.
He is also obviously hilarious. This quote is the best sentence I’ve read all week: “I love to let the beard speak for itself.”
Huzzah, good sir! Godspeed, congratulations, et cetera.
