Americans storm Berlin, strike gold!

(Photo courtesy of Jürgen Burkhart)
"Toot! Toot! Toot!"
America's new super hero, Toot Joslin, took first place and earned a gold trophy in the Sideburns category at the World Beard and Moustache Championships held in Berlin, Germany, on October 1, 2005. Toot is seen here flanked by Italy's Bruno Panza (left, second place) and Germany's Uwe Wankmüller (right, third place).
As expected, Germany dominated the event, taking gold in 14 of the 17 categories.

While the Americans didn't exactly hoist the stars and stripes over the Brandenburg Gate as they had hoped, they were invited along with all other competitors to appear on stage in front of the famous gate (the symbol of Berlin, once inaccessible in the no-man's land separating East and West Berlin) during celebrations on German Unity Day, October 3.
"This was a building year for us," says Phil Olsen, self-appointed captain of Team USA, who was pleased with the results. "We'll be back next time with a bigger and even stronger team."

The next World Beard and Moustache Championships will take place in Brighton, England, on September 1, 2007.

Toot is still waiting for the traditional congratulatory phone call from President Bush.

Phil, When are you going to remove the comments from these non-beard-loving pretenders that says they like the site then try to hock their own site. As a man that has grown a Van Dyke every summer since I was 18, it upsets me that these shameless carpetbaggers are taiting the best website on the net!!! Keep it up and we are all proud of your steller work in Berlin!!!

Done! The delay was due to technical problems. People without beards are welcome to comment here, as are people who don't like beards. But, people trying to use this blog to advertise their crap will have their comments DELETED.

How do they get their hair to stay like that?
Do they use Gel or hair spray?

Or like head hair can you train the hair to lay a certain way?

Hi mr. blentwell,

I think most of them use commercially available hairsprays, waxes, and gels. Some are tight-lipped, regarding the info as secret.

I went to an online pharmacy a month ago to Buy Lipitor
, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.

First off all I would like to thank you for that great post. It's very interesting to read your posts. As I can see, a lot of people here knows much about ED treatment maybe they can help me. For a long time I can't decide what is better: to buy viagra online, to buy cialis online or to buy levitra online? I found this online pharmacy to buy all this things, so can somebody help me to make a decision? IMHO I should buy generic viagra

Generic Viagra contains Sildenafil and it is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability of the penis to become rigid, or stay firm long enough to complete the sexual act.Generic Viagra is used to increase blood flow to certain areas of the body, as a muscle relaxant and as a male impotence or erectile dysfunction treatment. Generic Propecia is a one-a-day, FDA-approved, treatment for male pattern hair loss at the crown or in the middle of the scalp (androgenetic alopecia). Generic Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.Generic Cialis is consumed orally and has quickly become one of the most prescribed medications. Generic Levitra has been clinically proven to improve erectile function, even in men who had other health factors, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes
