Conan O'Brien's Beard is Tweeting Away

conanbeardtwitter.jpgFor those of you who use the popular microblogging service Twitter, you now have chance to follow not only Conan O'Brien, but to follow his beard as well.

Conan has almost 670,000 followers on Twitter, while his beard has less than 10,000 followers, but his beard feed might just be funnier than he is.

Here's Conan's Twitter feed:


And now we hear from Conan's beard:


What do you think, should his beard, not him, be the actual celebrity?

And hey, if you like celebrity body parts, you might want to check out Jay Leno's chin on Twitter.

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.

Panasonic Beard Buster iPhone App: Facial Hair Fun

beardbuster.jpgIt's become a funny catchphrase to say "There's an app for that", but it's probably truer than you think. Panasonic just released their own iPhone app, called Beard Buster.

Users can upload a picture of themselves, add facial hair with a 'sketch pen', and then use a razor to shave it into any kind of facial hair that strikes their fancy - from a goatee to a Fu Manchu moustache or a full-length beard. When you're done, you can send the resulting image to friends on Facebook.

So just when you think "I've seen it all" along comes another app...

To pick up yours (for free!) head over to the app store: Beard Buster

The Shave Mobile, For the Man Who Has Everything

shavemobile.jpgWe covered this briefly before, but because we all need a good laugh, I direct you to the Google translation of an article on the Japanese CNET site:

"Finally appeared, they built shaving! Rapidly evolving mobile incorporated various features. What's your purse, and nothing to their Tondemoketai Japan movement in China that is separate from the evolution to proceed with murder. The mobile TV Sutereohanzufuri it after hearing the music, change the cell phone number depending on the opponent, and nothing to the norm now in China. Whenever a new model Tondemoketai "Now I will be on the features?" And they get excited. China has produced its strongest ever, ever, no, "t best demonstration" that will introduce this guy to call his mobile. Why this feature? Why features? What exactly are you thinking! They Atsu no sane or mad? Maa question but there is a lot to force the manufacturer's product planning has already made your phone just like you have to tip my hat."
