The True Test of Sainthood

If you can have a beard like this and not look to see if people are looking at your beard...


... or not be jealous.

See? That's another reason for you to trim your beard. I'm just trying to help you to heaven, Honey. ;-)

Before long the Orthodox Church will have to issue 3-D eyeware to avoid over beatification amongst the parishoners, especially the young.

Is that the Uncreated Light, or have you bleached your beard again, Vladyka?

Aw... are you SURE he's not just a beard-a-thon hockey fan in the middle of the Stanley Cup playoffs?

Seems like if I grow a beard... it'll get as long as this BEFORE my team ever wins the ol' mug.

Eh. One of the things preventing me from joining a monastery is the facial hair issue. I can't maintain a "beard" (stupid SEAsian genetics) for more than two months without it driving me crazy.

I keep looking at this thing. I'm wondering if it's like one of those old postcards that turned blue to tell the humidity? Or maybe the beard is a Chia pet?

A man who should never operate a lathe or a drill press. It really must belie a bit of an idle life. Like a Mandarin with 6-inch fingernails or something. Unless there's a lot of preparation for man & beard he can't do much but be waited on. Oh, and we all know how much talent goes into growing body hair.

You don't have to look when you KNOW everyone is looking!
