I love beards. I love flowers. But I’m not sure I’m sold on dudes putting flowers in their beards, the hot new “trend” barfed out of the summer festival circuit like a worn out pair of Birkenstocks. Yes, “flower beards” are apparently a thing, though I doubt they’re so much of a thing that the trend will trickle down throughout the facial hair-growing populace.

DISCUSS.

Pierce Thiot has a magnificent beard, and he’s not afraid to use it … to store household items like toothpicks, spaghetti, straws, gummy worms, and lit matches. Pierce and his wife, Stacy, have started a Tumblr blog dedicated to these beardly feets called Will It Beard, which is full of photos of Pierce’s beard stuffed with various knick-knacks. The lit matches and razors are kind of freaking me out, but on the whole it’s a strangely charming photographic ode to the many uses of facial hair. [Junk Culture]

When he’s not smiling, he’s almost unrecognizable, but oh my god, he looks so rough and burly. (Is it obvious that I haven’t had sex in a while? Sorry.) Julie says that Adam looks like he just came back from cruising Chelsea, but whatever. What do you think of Adam’s hairy new look? [Photos: Splash News and Fame/Flynet]
