Beards Be Gone!
When Will Ferrell declared he was going to shave off Conan O’Brien’s beard, or as it was jokingly called, “Beardpocalyspe”, it was way before any of the events of Sunday night took place. In fact, Ferrell had been scheduled to be on Conan last night for probably weeks, and the bit was written, yada-yada-yada. However, one man shaved off his beard and it’s a much different, albeit topical story.
On Sunday, Washington-state middle-school teacher Dan Weddle shaved off his beard he had been growing ever since the events of 9/11. And he wasn’t going to shave unless Osama Bin Laden had either been captured and/or killed. Yes, he had grown out his beard for nearly ten years! Or 3,454 days. It’s length? 15 inches. Wow! Determination and patriotism at its finest.
