The Great Debate

I have a question for all of my fellow crossfitters, (male and female please). Which is BEST? The “MOUSTACHE” or The “BEARD”. There is such strength with the beard yet, the mustache is sleek, sexy and undoubtedly stylish. My personal experience with both has been just phenomenal but now I need your help. I don’t know about you but for the last 11 and a half months all I can think about is how bad to the bone everyone’s mustache’s are gonna look during Movember. Please write in comments, your thoughts. Thank you.

    I’m positive everyone is going for thin mint…however, Jacobson’s caterpillar on his lip is quite exquisite..nothing speaks more volume, power, and pure excellence! That’s what drives the sleeper to greatness! Whoo whoo!

    Unless your name is Ron Swanson OR it’s Moveber I can’t say moustache. Beard all the way! That said I am physically incapable of growing either. I just get weird thin patchy looking facial hair. I will never be a real man :(

    I can’t decide, so it’s going to have to be beard on one side stache on the other

    I’m truly a fan of both, but there is something to awe in a full beard. The time and dedication, (genetics aside) and commitment to growing one, may only be overshadowed by the commitment to significant other! Or is it? The beard says I’m badass and very aware, but that the same times says, I don’t really give a shit. Beard all the way!

    If I had to grow one, I would go with thin mint, easier to glue on.

    I agree with Danny. Movember is the only time staches are ok. Even then, if you grow one, be prepared for moms to hide their kids from you. I’m definitely pro beard. Beards can be measured in degrees of epicness while staches are measured in degrees of grossness. Watch a couple episodes of duck dynasty and you’ll see the truth :)

    I mean do you guys not remember what Lucas Parker looked liked during the games? Beards just ooze manliness and if you can grow a sweater vest that might help too?

    Agreed Movember is the only time for staches, unless you are a fireman, Tom Selleck, or Burt Reynolds.

    That said, after this mornings workout…I am an even bigger fan of the beard. Stupid Stache!!!

    Nikoli had the kimbo.slice going, that was sweet. I did enjoy the Johnny ringo stache though. The most B.A. Stache I have seen is the Wyatt erp satche Kurt Russell sports in tombstone. “And hell followed with him.” The pencil stache can only be pulled of by Stallone in an expendables sequel – it only looks good on a botoxed face. So, I vote erp staches all around!

    Im with Mel – Trimmed close is sexy, long anywhere starts to collect sometimes unidentifiable objects and makes us think you’re hiding something.

    Haha!!! Ask Becca about the spider that crawled out of my beard the other day.
