Welcome to the inaugural edition of this (soon to be) recurring feature on B-a-B... you may have seen us protect the image of beards on Twitter with this call to action, perhaps even on Facebook and Tumblr... so we decided to take it to the blog, since issues keep on arising.
We call it simply... Don't Blame The Beard!
For every awesome beard there seem to be misguided beardos, law enforcement officers, brash public conclusions, thesmokinggun.com and many many other platforms that just seem to jump to conclusions... as such, we have taken it upon ourselves to combat the narrow minded state of pogonophobic public by a targeted campaign aimed at distancing acts of detriment by beardos to the beardo nation.
That said, not every beard will get our protection under these parameters... only the ones deserving and worthy will reap the benefits of our other cheek philosophy.
Today's DBTB candidate is 61-year-old Eddie M. Campbell from Belle WV... who, according to the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department (and WSAZ-News Channel 3), was caught at Booker T. Washington Memorial Park in Malden with his shirt off and his pants around his ankles... he was detained for committing "lewd acts" with a mannequin.
So, all you readers... spread our words, and DO NOT, under any circumstance, blame this awesome white mutton-chop beard, for the actions of the man attached to it... and you, Eddie... zip up, put your shirt back on, and take a bow... you're the inaugural member of our DBTB community!
