Reader: Hipsters Have Ruined the Beard

The Great American Beard and Moustache Competition was a hair-raising experience, and it raised the eyebrows — and ire — of a few whisker fans who caught our slideshow. Says Jeff:
This used to be cool but hipsters have ruined the beard.
Adds Samuel:
 Some of these are absolutely ridiculous, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If they're happy, all the power to them.
