Beards? Always Funny

Today we shift from badass to hilarious at TBO.  When I say 'bearded comedian', who do you think of? 

 (If you thought 'Jim Gaffigan', I am going to force feed you hot pockets until you die)

Ladies and gentlemen, Zach Galifianakis.  Difficult to spell, but hilarious.  With such laugh inducing movies under his belt, including Bubble Boy, G-Force, and Youth in Revolt; it's not tough to see why Zach Galifianakis is a household name.  Want to see a picture of someone who's not funny?

(Mad Men extra, perhaps?)

Sans beard, not funny.  Still a decent actor, but what's the point?  That's like having the 1998 Denver Broncos without Terrel Davis.  It's ok, but it's not fantastic.  And one of the best beards in show business is also one of the funniest.  Why would you deprive the world of that?

Huge Beard > Huge Hair

Long time no see, beard fans.  I've been quite busy (fuckin' law school, man...).  Now, let me just say this:  I hate the Steelers.  I respect them, but I hate them.  You know who I don't hate?  This man:

(The hat only helps.  A lot.)

Defensive End Brett Keisel.  And holy hell, his beard could engineer a coup of a third world country and no one would ever know.  Somali Pirates?  BEARD!  They're done.  He reminds me a lot of that Germanic guy in the beginning of 'Gladiator'.  Only Keisel doesn't lose that badly...usually.
