RUSSELL BRAND & ROY KEANE HEAD SCARY BEARD OF HALLOWEEN SHORTLIST
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, which campaigns against irrational prejudice against the hirsute, has announced the shortlist for the Beard of Halloween 2014 title. Russell Brand who has just published a new book, ‘Revolution’ leads the list along with Aston Villa Manager Roy Keane who has recently shaved his beard off after a pogonophobic campaign against it.
The title, awarded each year on October 31st, takes a wry look at Halloween festivities by identifying the scariest beard in the public eye. The winner is likely to win by the narrowest crack of a squeaky floorboard.
The BLF does not generally believe that beards are scary but accepts that on a dark moonless night as a beard looms through the gloom, nerves may rise a little as to what lies behind the beard.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said Of course we accept that in the cold light of day most of the beards on the shortlist are not scary. But on a dark night at the end of October things can seem very different
We are asking people to vote for the Scariest Beard and to add their own ideas if they are not on the list
