Stink Bugs and Beard Frogs

stinkbug.jpgIn all my years of wearing a full beard, I never had issues with bugs. I went backpacking and camping and on canoe trips, through all types of terrain, and not once did I have to deal with a beard infestation.

So imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon a question about this very topic over at Askville:

"Why are stink bugs so attracted to my beard?"

I chuckled to myself, visualizing some guy waking up every morning with these big bugs in his beard, and wondering where the heck he lives, so I can avoid that place.

But then I read the answer voted as the Best Answer, with 4 1/2 stars:

"Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill (of ZZ Top) had this exact same problem for a very long time. It wasn't until the mid eighties that Billy and Dusty adopted a pair of what are now known as "beard frogs" and found their solution."

Coffee came out my nose when I read that - I'm imagining the beard frog creeping up the long white beards and popping its head out during a concert.

You'll have to read the rest of the beard frog answer for yourself, and tell me if you've ever heard of such a thing happening to a bearded man. Who knows? The beard frog might just might be the next pet rock.
