I wonder if any of the blokes looking in here have experimented with facial hair? Those of you who have received Mr. and Mrs. Bigrab’s silver wedding invitation will see photographic evidence that Yours Truly had early experience with topiary of the mug. Friends have commented that I remind them variously of The Yorkshire Ripper or Gerry Adams. One even said I had the look of a young Harold Shipman!
In fact it has been over ten years since my last ‘brush’ with hirsute adornment of the coupon and I fear that any attempt now would be of the ‘salt and pepper’ variety – mainly salt!
The picture above is of a blogger who has experimented with 25 variations of fuzz of the phizog so you don’t have to. I have in fact tried three of these variations 1) The short boxed beard 2) The Van Dyk and 3) The copstash (which lasted only a few days after some rather cutting ‘gay’ and ‘Groucho Marx’ accusations).

It really is amazing that our brains can decipher such a seemingly nonsensical paragraph so quickly. If you Click Here you can convert any web page to this gobbledygook. Don’t ask me why but it’s addictive!
Perhaps this will appeal to someone known to me who can convert a mobile phone’s language to something similar (i.e. Hungarian) should you leave one lying around!
