It’s finally here! Everyone’s favorite day of the year! World Mustache and Beard Championship day! (The song you hear with this link – I think everybody will be singing it soon.)

As you are all already aware, this year’s competition is being held in Brighton, England. Brighton is a very fitting location for the event, as the beard was actually invented just outside of Brighton in the early 1830s.

The judging will commence after the WMBC parade, and prizes will be awarded in three general categories, each with a variety of sub-classes. Check them out, and see what kind of beard person you are! I think I’m partial to the Musketeer.

You just don't see as many "french forks" as you used to.
