The World Beard and Moustache Championships are coming up next year! We’re telling you nice and early so you can start growing the manliest of all features: a ridiculous moustache! Here are our top 5 picks from last year’s competition.
Burke Kenny, U.S.A. – Full Beard Natural with Styled Moustache Winner
It’s like Moses meets Snidely Whiplash. Majestic, mysterious, and sort of gross, actually. What could be growing in that thing? The leather jacket and top hat combo is a nice touch.
Karl-Heinze Hille, Germany – Imperial Partial Beard Winner
Are we the only ones that think that Karl is sporting elephant tusks? Oh well. He looks happy about it. Maybe he just had a peanut. Or found a magic feather and is about to fly away
Dieter Besuch, Germany - Partial Beard Freestyle Winner
We count not one, not two, but four loops of beard on Dieter. We can’t tell if it’s a spiral or separate loops, but either way it’s certainly impressive!
Bill Mitchell, U.S.A – Sideburns Freestyle Winner
The seamless blending of sideburn and beard on Bill is as American as it gets. Blending two things that should remain separate into something awesome is a hallmark of our great nation. Just look at the Dorito taco thing at Taco Bell!
Elmar Weisser, Germany – Full Beards Freestyle Winner, Overall Winner
That man has crafted a moose scene out of his beard. Your argument is invalid. Seriously. If we were ever in an argument with Elmar, he would win by default based on his beard alone.
