Initially, I decided to post this photo of Washingtonian Burke Kenney for the sole enjoyment of my sister, who was already a fan of the World Beard and Moustache Championship. But upon further consideration, I decided that this beard reminded me of the most famous bearded science blogger in the world, PZ Myers. First there's the fact that PZ is bearded and proud, and then there's the little cephalopod cartoon (at left) he signs all of his posts with. Combine these two, and voila: you get a world champion beard!
