I look silly…

 jed-franz-josef-blank-stare-cropped-smallWell folks, you asked for it. I look positively silly. I guess I just don’t have whatever it is that is necessary to pull off the Franz Josef. In light of how the votes went, I have to ask:

Why did you vote the way you did?

My biggest fear is that when I shave the rest off, I will still look silly. I forgot how weak my chin was. Oh well. Lesson learned.

I think I can mitigate the silliness (or at least explain it) by maintaining a goofy look:

Here are some additional pictures, including a direct before & after comparison.

Before (and looking a little sleepy)

After

After (a little more awake after realizing what I've done)

So, who is next? Please comment or email me to let me know if you are interested in participating in another round of this crazy experiment in facial hair management (if you don’t have a beard yet, but are planning to grow one and will be ready to shave by a certain date, just let me know the date and I’ll schedule you in).

    Your photo-shoped picture with the red hightlight of the Franz Josef looks way cooler. What if you paint the bare chin red and try that for a few days?
