For what? You’re kidding.

See this report?

Nothing to say … but maybe you’ve got some insights, or comments, or jokes… sure am thankful we didn’t eat beard today.

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) – Two central Kentucky men were sentenced to probation in connection with a bizarre case in which a third man said he was forced to eat his beard after an argument. The Lexington Herald-Leader reported 47-year-old Troy Holt and 51-year-old James Hill were sentenced Tuesday in Anderson Circuit Court.

Harvey Westmoreland of Lawrenceburg had said Holt cut off his beard and forced him to eat it while Hill allegedly held a sickle blade to Westmoreland and his brother during the May incident.

Holt could not say why he made Westmoreland eat his beard other than that things “got out of control” after some heavy drinking.

He added, “I ain’t got no excuses about what I done.”

Hill had no comment after sentencing.

As a condition of their sentences, neither Holt nor Hill is to have contact with Westmoreland.

    I saw them in ’79 or so and we were blown away when they came out with the beards and what we thought looked like jewish rabbi suits. Then they rocked, it was great.
