If this had been an actual beard emergency, the following message would accompany a razor, electric beard trimming kit and instructions. This is only a test
Recently, my mustache got a friend.
I've grown a beard. I'm not sure if it's because I hate shaving. I'm not sure if it's because I'm needing a more distinguished look. I'm not sure why it's here, but it is.
I believe I'm at a Stage 2 Level Beard. Not sure what the beard stages are? Let me show you with a system that I just came up with:
Level 1 Beard
This includes scruffy beards and maybe a day or two of not shaving afterwards. Manly and rough looking. Possibly the coolest looking beard today.
Stage 2 Level
This goes just beyond the scruffy look where you can no longer see the face under the beard. I don't think I'll go beyond this level out of fear of what may be to come. This is also a good place to maintain the beard with regular trimming. Prince William is wearing his well.
Stage 3 Level
This is nearing the Grizzly Adams look. I guess it works well with a round face and is good for comedic intent. Way to wear it Zach Galafinakis.
Stage 4 Level
This is lost in the wilderness for over a month. Good if you're a survivalist, it shows your toughness. It also scares little children. Not sure what Brad Pitt is thinking here, but I do not believe he's lost in the woods.
Stage 5 Beard
This beard says "I don't care anymore," "I am never going to kiss another person ever again" and "I am have been sleeping or in a coma for many years." I don't advise anyone go there. Rip Van Winkle really was the last guy to get away with it and I'm sure he went to the barber right after he woke up.'
