Straight talk on a curly one

Dear Minxie,
What’s your view of the bushy beard brigade taking over the suburbs and cities? Do you think women dig facial fur? Graham

Dear Graham,
I was reading an article on my patio the other day that said 2014 was “peak beard”. I beg to differ. I’d say 1880 was the pinnacle. To me, all those young gents who have adopted the Ned Kelly or the Gandalph are about as hip as a hampster (these critters’ idea of edgy isflipping out over mealworms, biting the hand that feeds them and eating their own droppings). Any man under 50 who has a beard should really put their Remington 2000 to good use. There are exceptions: bona fide bushmen, hermits, actual wizards and anyone who answers to ‘Cletus’. The beard is like an Alfred Hitchcock movie. It’s not what you see, but the suggestion of what lurks in the shadows. That beard could hold fragments of the history of every curry/pizza/cheese ball and lager you have consumed in the past week, car keys and all the odd socks and jocks you thought were taken by the garment goblin. What sort of vixen would want to put their beautiful cold-crème cleansed face near that? Want to feel all warm and fuzzy? Shave the fluff and give it to a toupe maker. Help yourself, help others.
