Inverse Mutton-chops! (18 Apr 2008 at 23:15)
Inverse mutton chops


Behold, inverse mutton chops. (Or would you call these reverse sideburns or something?) I always wanted to try this, so when there was a 3-week beard contest I decided to go for it. I didn't win, but it got a lot of good feedback. Maybe if there were a category for lengthiest beard? This ironic "GQ Cover" glossy is courtesy of Mike.

I'm not quite comfortable looking this stupid in person in front of people I don't know; I wore a hat when I was outside today, even though it was like 80°. So, they are gone now. The regular beard part is still on, since I'm past the itchy phase and I'm not sure what to do with it yet. Maybe you have a suggestion.

That is amazing.

So is the subtle "thumbs up".

How do you achieve the "GQ effect"

j: First, you gotta look really good. Second, be taking off your clothes. Third, subtle "thumbs up."

For some reason, I just assumed from the photo that you only had the one inverse mutton chop on the right side (perhaps because I'm so accustomed to thinking of you as one who minimizes his hair). You can imagine how this asymmetry increased the ridiculousness of the look, even if not present in reality.

Sorry, by "right side", I apparently meant "left side", as is my longstanding convention.
