Beardelodeon


Beardelodeon 2008 starts today at noon. Here's part of the flyer I did for this year's competition.

What is Beardelodeon? I'm glad you asked. It's Nickelodeon's annual-ish beard growing contest. I'm proud to say that I, your humble servant, am the founder of Beardelodeon. I came up with the idea back in 1998, mostly as a joke, but here we are 10 years later, and, by Jove, it's still going strong.

It's simple...you can even play along at home (that is, if you are capable of growing a beard): First, you shave your face. Then you don't shave your face for two weeks. Simple.

Traditionally, winning contestants would be crowned either Mr. Density; Mr. Length; or Mr. Babyface. I understand that a fourth category may be added this year: Mr. Patchy.

I'll try to give you a before/after image of my ugly mug in a couple weeks...

....................................UPDATE.......................................

There are 36 participants this year. That's a record, friends. And, there's talk of an underground "Beard Club" forming--members of which intend on extending the bearding period. More on this development later...

Minds well just start calling me Mr. Babyface. I hope I get a tiara and a sash.

Sweet middle aged sketch a couple down too. Funny stuff. I think my pal David was right, that's t-shirt material.

any prize for having a beard that is a different color from the hair anywhere else on your body?

Let us honor Beardelodeon's Founding Father Kenny for reminding us, that when it comes to growing a beard, the truth is self-evident, that all men are not created equal, that we are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Hirsute of Happiness.

Ah yes, I remember the Beardelodeon with great fondness, I myself was awarded the title of Mr Density twice. Of course Kenny was not allowed to compete on the years that he was hosting the event so the title was a bit shallow, as his growth is formidible.
After Kenny introduced the event it was so popular that I was asked to continue it during the time that Kenny was not at the studio, I'm glad to see that it lives on.
