NY Times: “The modern man has a beard.”

Stating the oh-so obvious, the New York Times, famous for “all the news that’s fit to print,” recently declared what all of us have known for quite some time: The modern man has a beard.

The Times was reporting on the big international men’s trade show Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy, where most of the male fashion models sported beards. According to the report, there has been a “generational shift from the smooth cheeks that defined Western masculinity for at least 100 years.”

Duh.

Stache Bash Nebraska!

Original: Mustaches for Kids

Congratulations to the M4K Omaha and M4K Hastings chapters on incredible May campaigns.  In just its second year, M4K Hastings raised $32,500 for Camp Hot Shots, a camp for children suffering from diabetes.

M4K Omaha continues to break its own records by raising an astounding $251,000.  Their charity partner this year was HETRA (Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy) that provides therapeutic horseback riding for children with disabilities.  Their whiskers raised so much cash that HETRA is going to name a barn after M4K!  Great job guys!

Happy Birthday, Beard!

Original: The Beard Coach

Happy birthday to you – Happy birthday to you – Happy biiiiiirthday, dear Beard.  Happy birthday to you!

Beard, you’re ten years old today!  Ten years old!  You’re no longer a small child beard, but you haven’t yet gotten to the strange pre-teen stage where angst and drama could begin to burst forth at any moment.  Nope, you’re comfortable with who you are and you know what you like.

You like staying pretty long, but not epic length.  Just long enough for people to notice you and wonder, “Where are that hipster’s horn-rimmed glasses?  And why isn’t he wearing chukkas?  Maybe his anchor tattoo is covered up by his sleeve.”

You like waving in a good strong breeze.  Like a noble flag.  Made of hair.

You like taking a dip in the water in the summer so that the air can cool my face in the most refreshing way.

Occasionally you get a wild hair (see what I did there!) to be trimmed close to my face.  Only for you to hear my wife accost me for harming you.  Even though you asked for it.

We have so much fun together, Beard!  Remember these classic moments?

- Losing that pie eating contest, but looking so awesome when we were done that everyone wanted our picture

Eurovision 2014, you win the internet

Original: Build-A-Beard

Thanks to The Independent for alerting us to this, think we found the act we're backing to win Eurovision song contest... we're just going to leave this here...

Singing for Austria, meet Conchita Wurst, aka Tom Neuwirth, who has been performing as his alter ego Conchita since 2011. For this year's contest he will be singing 'Rise Like a Phoenix'. Tom's motto is: 'Be the best version of yourself rather than a bad copy of someone else'. Conchita is a symbol for tolerance and artistic freedom around the world.

Austria, way to prove it, you win the internet.

Mustaches in the Heartland

Original: Mustaches for Kids

If you live in Nebraska and want to help kids by looking fantastic, sign up to grow this May with either the Omaha chapter or the Hastings chapter.

Stache Bash Shennanigans

Hastings:  In Hastings’ inaugural campaign the brothers raised an outstanding $21,000.  They had so much fun last October they moved their Growing Season up to May so they are already running it back.  Check their website to register as a Grower.  Good luck Brothers!

Omaha:  Omaha just keeps raising the bar.  Now set to start their 6th campaign, 180 guys set a new M4K record in 2013 by raising over $201,000.  Check out their 2014 Recruiting Video to see why growing mustaches is the most outrageous (and fun) way to raise money for kiddos.  And if you are in Omaha go get signed up quick and all your wildest dreams will come true.
