The Beard Challenge Has Come to Instagram and It's Kinda Weird

posted by Jonathan - 

There's always a new trend on Instagram.  Some of them (Ice Bucket Challenge, for example) are for amazing causes.  Some of them (Tide Pods, Hot Stove Challenge) are downright stupid.

And some of them...well some of them are harmless but unexplainable.  

Enter the #BeardChallenge, where dudes are taking pictures from under their beards, giving the impression of a weird faceless cartoon character.

Exhibit A:

Je suis le moove. #beard #beardchallenge

To my knowledge, this is for no other purpose than to just be weird with your beard, which is both impressive but also...let's be honest....a little strange and creepy.
