Some beards contain more poo than a toilet shocking study reveals

Recommended Posts

that's why the old circus clowns used to spray the insides of their costumes with a half a bottle of vodka. Then they would clean their insides by drinking the other half of the bottle. (Those old circus clowns sure were sticklers about hygiene.)  :sc_wahoo: Chris

So a twofer! Clean the suit and yer innards, I like it!

Vodka is good!  Seriously, just make sure that what you do spray on your beard is not going to cause a reaction, of any kind. Stay away from the perfumy stuff and the masking sprays. I use a spray on my suits between sittings on the same day. I wouldn't dare use that on my beard. But as I mentioned earlier, I get good use of a little baby powder.

Keeping the hair clean is the #1 topic in our household.  I figure one of my jobs is watching out for spills during eating.  Our daughter suggested looping one of those cheap plastic grocery sacks around the ears and putting the beard inside during meals.  Hmmm...

We can discuss this until we are blue in the suit......

Ooops

I wonder how many of the test subjects may have been 'praying to the porcelain gods' prior to their swabbing

 

Wonder if Disney's Dreamfinder ever thought about this much.

Well, being as he was, the Keeper of the Sparks of the Imagination, I'd say Dreamfinder could, at any moment, ponder that aspect of his bushy beard any darn time he so chose. Which is why 2015 is bound to be a big beard year: And proud I am to say that the Big Apple will host two of this year's three major whisker wars. Saturday, May 16th finds the Bowery Ballroom hosting the Official New York City Beard and Moustache Championships, produced and sponsored by the Gotham City Beard Alliance, proceeds of which will benefit Art Start; then, on Saturday, November 7th, Brooklyn's Kings Theatre in Flatbush hosts the National Beard and Moustache Championships! And in between, on Saturday, October 3rd, in Leogang, Austria --- there's the World Beard and Moustache Championships .... Oh boy, it's gonna be a real big, bearded year around here! (Ho-ho-ho!)

this is also true of the hair on the head. It contains a lot of bacteria as well. Daily showers are a necessity. Bill washes his beard daily as well. It is a good reminder to all of us to be clean naturally beared or traditional.

In my mind's eye; I keep seeing a 1950's-60's era high school P.S.A.

"Soup of Life"

Part of what makes this wonderous world of ours unique.

I will say that my face and skin are far more healthy than when I shaved.

So..... bears a thought that just maybe bacteria is good for you and that just maybe,

a million years of evolution cant be wrong.

Yes, nice big glasses!

I just purchased a couple pair of half moons. If they look good, I'll post photos and information once they are received.

:blink:  Now I have to say, I'm not sure of poooooooo! But I do get the weirdest drool beards in the morning and sometimes I think it's worse than poo! I didn't realize how much I drooled until I started a beard last year and it has caused me to buy pillow covers so I can take off and wash them weekly.

   

 So the beard has caused a great deal of knowledge on hygiene for this world I see so does that make the beard a official health meter for the world and should everyone have  one?

 

HMMM I ponder more and more, good thing I have my white thrown to sit upon and think about this bewilderment!

I have found I can hide a lot of Skittles in my beard and I used to think that was a handy place to keep them... :santa_shocked:

I guess the one bath or shower a month rule is out dated.  I'll double that  LOL

 

Seriously, I am not surprised with the report. While my beard is not real in photo, I do have a beard and I am always touching it for one reason or another. Cleanliness is very important whether on the job or not. Thanks for sharing, I think I need some better products for keeping myself groomed.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      ChristmasWeekly.com
      September 7, 2017

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
