While it was indeed a hip trend in the past few years, even some of the ladies where growing them it was such a trend. But now you are starting to find out that you must live under a rock because that trend has come and gone, and well you still have the face fro.

Now every one has a beard, running around with your lunch dangling in face pubes all day is no way to find an attractive lady to take home for the night. Rocking a beard now means you are just another sheep in the heard.
