Now check out the ones with shaving cream and razors. It’s like he’s taunting them …
A subscriber, by sending the above photo, panders successfully:
I just renewed and bumped up the price to $25 for now, and likely more to come later. I’ve been a reader for a solid decade, and for a busy person with limited reading time, the Dish offers an incredible value with a great balance of breadth and depth. We’re all richer for it.
Holy shit. It’s taken me this long to figure out that the Dish and my firstborn have the same exact date of birth (one year ago today). I’ve been procrastinating on the renewal, but obviously the universe wants me to knock it off. Anyway: I renewed for $23.273 (which I rounded up to $23.28), which is how you spell “beard” on a standard keypad.

I just renewed for $50, which I consider a bargain. I’ve been reading this blog almost cover to cover since about the time you moved to the Atlantic; and while I’m not into religion or poetry, I read those posts too. They are always thoughtful and worth my time. With all the blowhards out there, it’s refreshing to hear a voice that’s passionate about a wide variety of worthwhile things without being mind-numbingly monomaniacal and bonkers. Bon chance.
And as long as you’re posting silly pictures of Dishheads, feel free to use this one. Every boy should have a rhinoceros.

Meanwhile, Salon gets all paranoid:
“Duck Dynasty’s” bearded male stars offer a symbolic reaffirmation of traditional values onto which many Americans threatened by social change can latch.
So where are all the big-bearded Republican candidates? And, er, how do you account for Brooklyn? Meanwhile, a runner-up for Beard of the Week:
Being lost for the appropriate words with which to describe the beard worn by the South African back row Josh Strauss, who has now completed the necessary quarantine period and installed his magnificent specimen in a suitably airy, light and fecund greenhouse somewhere in Glasgow, I’m reduced to wondering exactly which Confederate Civil War general he resembles most. Maybe James Longstreet crossbred with Stonewall Jackson? If nothing else, it’s an image.

This one is too good not to double-up this week:
Thanks to a reader:
I can’t be the first one who has brought Jon Hamm’s new beard to your attention, but I may be the first one to send you screenshot of him rocking that beard whilst holding a baby snow leopard (from Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live – clip here). Enjoy.

One of dozens of hirsute portraits by Greg Anderson Photography of the participants in the 2013 Beard And Mustache Championships in New Orleans a couple weeks ago. This one is Scavullo meets young Gandalf. I am not worthy.
Update from a nerd:
Nevertheless, pretty rockin’ beard.
A reader flags it from Reddit:
The caption reads, “I commissioned a friend to knit me a viking hat, turned out way better than expected.”
A reader delivers “the state of my beard”:
Mine’s rocking right now as well, after a summer of benign neglect. Grayer, but solid. I’ll be showing it off on CNN next week. Stay tuned. Previous BOTWs here.

Over the weekend I was in Montreal, where I happened to stumble across a spectacular exhibit promoting urban agriculture and horticulture. The event dates back to 1998 and has shown every few years since in different cities around the world. One of the exhibits stood out to me as possible beard of the week material. I humbly submit to you, “grass beard”.
