The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that research by John Golobic of Quest in New Mexico, widely publicised over the weekend, which purports to demonstrate that beards contain ‘poo’ has a whiff of pogonphobia about it.

The research took swabs from people’s beards which analysis showed contained faecal matter

The campaigners say it is unclear why Mr Golobic carried out the research or what his sample was. It is also unclear why he did not take swabs from people’s hair and their hands which in some cases might also have traces of dirt.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said of course people should keep their beards shampooed, washed and clean and there are numerous beard health preparations on the market. However the ‘dirty beard’ research does seem aimed more at encouraging pogonophobia than anything else

  1. Reblogged this on In the Dark and commented:
    For the record I’d like to make it clear that there is no poo in my beard, not even sham poo. Geddit?

  2. In the case of some bearded people (not your good self obviously, I’m thinking of the likes of Paxman) it is the shit that comes out of their mouths rather than that from their arseholes that is the source of the problem.

  3. True tnough despite Paxman shaving his beard there is no difference in emissions from his orifices
