Feel free to correct me, guys (as though you needed my permission!).
#2129 - 06/20/00 10:55 AM Re: rush to judgment
It was only a guess!!!
Now I need to know is it a bushy beard or a restrained beard. I'd be surprised if it were one of those goatee ones, I'm not sure they were so popular in 1973, I'd have thought that you were around twelve then - was it allowed at school????

Ahem , noted.

Loc: this too shall pass
variable... I trim it at least as often as I have my hairs cut.
are you a pogonologist??
(I can hear the questions now: what is pogonology?
a) the study of fog
b) the study of pogs
c) the study of beards
d) the study of comics
e) the study of lipography
f) the study of jumping?!)

>>Own up those who proudly possess a beard<<
No beard here - in fact I seldom see them here in Aotearoa.
There is a Maori custom where men and women have their faces (and bodies) tattooed. Men can look quite fearsome, with full-face tattoos - women's seem to be more restricted to the lower lips and chin

I'd like to go with fog but I suspect there is more testosterone involved in this question. I noticed there was a book which had a female in the title - would that be getting warm?

Sorry, Jackie, just a fear of shaving (is there a word for that?). OK, OK, I grew it on our honeymoon in 1964 and my wife and I kinda got used to it. My kids were always kidding me about my pre-marriage photos -- Hey, mum who's the cool dude with the beard? And it has nothing to do with one of my favourite movies, the Marx Bros' A night at the opera!
Isn't there a saying: "Hirsuteness is next to godliness"?

I don't know about that but I've heard that:
"Kissing a man without a mustache is like eating an egg without salt."
(Mustachioed newbie here. Grew it when Groucho died, shaved it briefly when Elvis died.)
BTW, I think that Virgin guy is a heck of a lot more fun than Gates, with round-the-world ballooning attempts, transoceanic speed record attempts, etc. I do have the right fellow, don't I?

it wasn't a trick question (maybe that threw you off? ;) -- pogonology is the study of beards. now, what's all this about a book....

>now, what's all this about a book....
The only place I could find it when I googled was in the web site shown below. I wondered if you were trying to imply anything!!!
