Beard Shearing in Amish Country


Five men have been charged in the shearing of an elderly Amish man's beard, with an interesting twist:

"Five members from a sect that was excommunicated by the Amish community were arraigned this morning on charges of kidnapping and aggravated burglary after authorities said they ganged up on an Amish man and chopped off his beard in Ohio, an assault that's considered sacrilegious for the group."

Never mind sacrilegious, it's also just plain wrong...

But it gets even better. Three of the men involved have the last name Mullet. I think it might be safe to say that's the first time that a mullet ever sheared a beard.
