I love beards. My favorite ones are on the cusp of becoming unruly, and look like they need a bit of a trim. My raging love of facial hair brought me to my current manfriend, because of his glorious chin fronds. Now, “chin fronds” isn’t the most attractive synonym for a beard, so I’ll defer to Herman Melville. In just two chapters of his novel White Jacket, he used twenty-five different terms to describe beards onboard a warship. Flavorwire has illustrated a few of them.
Some of them are slightly phallic, sort of weird, and some just look lovely.
I wouldn’t mind being nuzzled by some nodding harvests, but I’m really more interested in homeward-bounders, if you catch my drift….
