Portland Monthly: Portland beardiest city in U.S.


Portland Monthly has somehow come to the conclusion that Portland is the beardiest town in these United States. While I can already hear the heavy sigh and collective “duh” from PDX beardies throughout the snow covered Willamette Valley, I am quite excited to see a little recognition (even if it is in a publication based in Beard Ground Zero).

The article is full of stellar quotes, too:

A beard is a scarf that works great while bike riding.

We have a populace and an electorate whose easy-like-Sunday-morning attitude allows all of those who are too lazy or cheap to buy a razor the good grace to go without one.

A beard is a bullshit filter. It keeps me from working at lame places and 
interacting with lame people.


My beard-growing goes with my life philosophy: not why, but why not?

A beard is a friend who is always there to give you a hug.
So, from the home of the Revue, and snagged from the pages of Portland Monthly, here is some hot Stumptown beard action. (Follow the link for more large photos.)

I'm sure they work great as scarves and keep food stains off shirts. "The dude abides."

The photos are by Chris Hornbecker. I don't see any credit on this blog, and there really needs to be.
