Beardo Fake Beard Perfect For Dudes With Facial Hair Of A Schoolgirl

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Canadian man with little facial hair says his invention of the Beardo, a cold-weather toque with a detachable knitted beard, is selling nicely.


Jeff Phillips, 31, told the Toronto Star the acrylic beard with a hole for the mouth is held on by Velcro and is detachable or can be folded up inside the toque.

He said he came up with the idea while snowboarding in 2006 in British Columbia and began selling the Beardo online in November."


My bald head is as smooth as a baby`s bottom, but nature compensated by giving me a thick black beard.

I`m proud of my shaved head and I don`t mind yahoos calling me baldy or Kojak. But if I see a dude with the facial hair of a prepubescent schoolgirl wearing a Beardo, I will yank it off and use it to polish my bald head.

Some folks think that a man with a shaved head looks silly, but nobody looks sillier than a dude wearing a Beardo.
