Man Grows bin Laden Beard Until bin Laden Is Caught

Posted: May 4, 2011 by Keith Stone in beards, U!S!A!

Gary Weddle is a 50-year-old middle school science teacher in Washington, not a member of al-Qaeda. After the attack on the World Trade Center nearly 10 years ago, he was so wrapped up in the news that he forgot to shave. Weddle decided to let his beard grow until Osama bin Laden was caught. It took a little longer than he thought it would. To his credit, he kept his word despite pleas from his wife and family and on Sunday was finally able to shave his beard.

I gotta be honest. I’m a little jealous. That’s a nice beard. I always try and grow one but it comes in so patchy. Weddle deserves a ton of credit. Although the original idea may have been a bit misguided considering it actually made him look like a terrorist, you have to admire a guy that stuck to his word and never forgot what was important.
