A Tale About A Lawn Mower, Two Drunk Guys, And A Dude Who Ate His Beard

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Kentucky man says when the dust settled after a drunken fight, he was spitting out chunks of his own beard.

Harvey Westmoreland said a brawl started in May over an offer to buy a lawn mower and ended with one of the combatants cutting off his chin whiskers and stuffing them in his mouth.

`They cut my beard and forced me to eat it,` Westmoreland told WLEX-TV, Lexington."


If a story has the following elements (Kentucky, alcohol, a lawn mower, and rednecks), it isn`t surprising if knives and guns come into play and a dude ends up forced to eat his own beard.

Westmoreland should never have haggled over the price of a used lawn mower with a drunk dude. He`s lucky he wasn`t forced to dance with the lawn mower.

Westmoreland looks like he used the old lawn mower to trim his beard.

These yahoos should be given their own reality show, it would be a heck of a lot more entertaining than a Paris Hilton reality show.
