Sometimes I fear what is going through the mind of SkrullBryan.  He’s the one that sent along the Poll of the Week for this week, and I guess from the Skrull point of view, one might spend endless hours pondering the crazy beard look – especially if you are from a race that has more than enough reason to want to cover their chins.  Regardless of the mental state of our shape shifting friend, the big question remains…

Who makes this look "look" good?

    My first instinct was to go for Alan Moore but on closer inspection his beard is a bit thin, better than most but unable to compete with the other two choices.
    I chose John Brown because, from looking at the picture, I can only surmise that his beard has taken on a life of it’s own and is trying to escape his face.

    None of the above?
    Alan Moore looks like a feral human more than anything else.
    Dumbledore’s is artificial.
    John Brown does nothing for me.

    I like the guy in the banner photo.

    Who wins? Uhh… barber shops specializing in beards? Beard-gel manufacturers? Oh! I know! ZZ Top!

    I grew up in the county where John Brown did the raid, was tried, and hung. So after years of loooking at those pictures, you’ve got to admire the beard, if you’re me.

    Alan Moore’s beard is A.K.A. Garth Ennis

    Or is Ennis other hair…

    My vote is for John Brown. The Tragic Prelude is hanging in my office here at work. My late grandmother worked at the capitol in Topeka and I remember passing that mural each time I was there. It’s an awesome piece of art. I vote for the crazy abolitionist.

    I voted for Dumbledore. At least it looks like he cares about his beard… and appearance.

    I’m pretty sure Alan Moore’s beard is a living entity who helps feed him his ideas.

    I really want to vote for the guy in the banner photo…
