The Beards of Britain 2011, a very disappointing and truly saddening turnout for this year’s event

This year’s event has been a great disappointment, with little in the way of new facial hair expressionism and a distinct lack of forward thinking, progressive, wispy-chin action.

The chart of entries below, gives the distinct feeling that people just don’t care about the beard anymore and for me, that is a symptom of the wider problem of complete disregard for the moral and ethical stalks of life’s budding flowers.

The below chart gives the truth to the lie of the truth that there is a crisis in Britain’s bearded.

“Poor, poor, poor.” (Extract from the senior judge, Tarquin Redbush’s summing up comments.)

The below chart shows the entries into the 2010 competition and you will note that there is a dramatic difference in the quality of the beards to the 2011 chart above.

Beards-of-Britain-2010

“Nice beards, all of them. They make me feel strangely tired, but in a good way.” (From the summing up by Farquin Greybush, head judge and senior beardologist of Oxford Chins.)

Even with such a dramatic and unforgivable drop in the faces of all those taking part, the early signs for 2012 are good, with the 2009 champion Sir Stuart Staurt Straut’s promiss to come out of retirement, all but guaranteeing that there will be a re-bearding of interest in the competition.

For information on entering for 2012, please comment on this blog entry and we will respond with words.

Bye bye.
