He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man.
I think facial hair is one of things either you like or you don't. This goes for both men and women. (And I am not referring to facial hair on women. That is just wrong.) Rumor has it that the beard is back. Yay! I find it extremely sexy and think most men look better with at least a little hair on their faces. I am a proud supporter of facial hair in all it's forms and happily discuss it when I can. Though, when I talked about facial hair and manscaping, I ended up getting myself in some hot water with Countrymouse. Of course, I've also talked about some of my favorite singers that also happen to sport epic beards. It's a common thread in many aspects of my life.
I've managed to instill my love of whiskers on my oldest pup. He's had different combinations of facial hair over his short tenure with the wiry stuff. Recently, he had a play date with his razor when he decided that he needed a fresh face to welcome in the spring.
He actually thinks it will take him two months to grow back the Fu Manchu and is counting the days. (That's one of those pesky life lessons... knowing when to say enough is enough.)
So in honor of all the facially furry men out there, I offer you the Beard Playlist. Enjoy these songs with the bearded man of your dreams (or be the bearded man of some sweet girls dreams!)

Pssst... did you see the guy to William's right with the handlebar mustache... very cool, indeed.
