Jealous of a man and his beard? This thread is not about Katie Holmes.

    The New York Times, in one of their always baffling trend stories, says that a growing number of Brooklyn men (translation = hipsters!) who cannot grow beards feel ostracized and jealous of the hirsute who walk among us.


    Behold! The epitome of virility!

    Paging Brian Williams ... not about the beard, but about his bit a few years ago when he said the media story of the year was the New York Times discovering the existence of Brooklyn, with its open-air markets and artisanal cheeses. "It's like Marrakesh."

    I never really liked Brian Williams much until I saw this.

    I now intend to go to Brooklyn where I can intimidate people with my magnificent beard.

    One can only hope the author's source was joking about beard growth and drinking beer. Um ...

    Derek Holland needs an intervention to tell him it's okay if he can't grow facial hair.

    Jesus Christ, Brian Williams is funny. Between watching him on The Daily Show, 30 Rock and when he hosted SNL, you could put him in a Thursday night comedy where he played a Ron Swanson-esq deadpan executive and he wouldn't miss a beat.

    I can't believe that on the entire internet I can't find any photographic evidence of the Cheers beard growing contest episode.

    I've been on the receiving end of beard envy, and it's not pretty.

    Speakng of Ron Swanson and facial hair, I frantically shaved before work the other day, leaving only my mustache, and when I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror later, I thought, " Holy shit, I'm starting to look just like the Cubs fan on those New Era commercials!" Another week and I'll be all set for my appearance on SNL.

    As someone who has been shaving daily since junior high, I would jump up and down if I could not grow a beard.

    Wait, is Offerman on tap to host SNL? That sounds glorious.

    I started growing my beard when I found out my wife was pregnant. Nothing looks more masculine than an old picture of a dude with a beard holding a newborn. Twenty years from now, we're going to dig up the pictures of the boy and I will look like a STUD.

    I can't grow a full beard but if I don't shave daily I look like hell. It's just enough to be a pain. It's like the top of my head — not growing everywhere it should, but where it does grow it comes in fast.
