It's a beard! It's not plain! It's ... super beards!
Facial-hair freaks from around the globe compete in the World Beard and Moustache Championships, a series of contests that's just about as bizarre as they come. The gallery of contestants and champions is not to be missed.
Comb through the official site and you'll discover that the hairy competition has taken root in New York City and England. There's even a Beard Team USA Blog and a forthcoming documentary (titled, drumroll please, Splitting Hairs).
