On the merit that this ginger beard is even visible, it safely resides in the top fifty percentile. But that’s about it. Ron Howard’s beard was recently described as “scruffy but defined, light and sweet” (The Jewish Journal). But it looks more like the accidental beard a university student might wear on his weekend laundry trip home than a purposeful development.
When is the goal a “light and sweet” beard? Unassuming, maybe, but sweet? If the uniquely male characteristic of whisker farming is relegated to an adjective shared by the fairer sex, vanilla ice cream and puppies, said whisker farm is harvesting a plagued crop.
Light and sweet, just like Richie Cunningham. How boring.
