This is it gentlemen.

It is with great sadness and a large measure of regret that I inform you all that I can no longer participate. This has been a fantastic experience and while I may not have provided any pictures even a fraction of the awesomeness as some from @motke, or @folliclejuju, or any number of you fine gentlemen, I had a lot of fun.

But in the end, my wife just could barely look at me. As my good freind @karl told me as I beat myself up about it, there are only two reasons to quit "ya gots to get paid, or ya gots to get laid".

I want to extend a massive thank you to @mackle for creating such a worthwhile phenomenon. I have had so much fun just growing this beard and seeing just how amazingly creative some people can be.

I thank each and everyone of you guys for making these last 4 months a fantastic time.

Goodbye and Goodluck,

Tobin AKA Beardwinner.

Oh man, sorry you couldn't make it for the last TWO WEEKS...But I agree - wife's wishes are more important than beards in my mind. It's just such a SHAME.

Thats wo that bit the dust due to their wife's insistence today.

But that is the best and only reason in my book.

Go love your wife.

Godspeed.

I love you, man. You have brought much excellence into the world of Wiskerino. @motke and @folliclejuju and @mackle should feel proud for their specific shouts-out.

Dear Beardwinner,

I understand. Sometimes life and those in the life will channel you in the directions you need to go. I appreciate the kind words. May your wife cover your face with hers.

cheers buddy.

I DO NOT LIKE THIS AT ALL.

Please CLAME immediately and watch this video. We can not lose another brother. You alone can overcome this obstacle. Why not just trim it back to a thick scruff? You will look like Don Johnson circa 1987, and he sure as hell got laid.

No, no one here can offer you the sex that you need. But we can offer you moral support while you live for two more weeks without sex!

I love your beard, and think you should never shave it. Please let it shine for two more weeks!

my friend, in 2 more weeks i will kiss my wife for the first time in 3 months. she hates this beard, and i'm having trouble eating anything. the other night, i was trying to floss and went through quite a painful experience as my wife plucked two large hairs out of my stache while trying to dislodge them from my teeth. i pray you haven't shaved. you get my vote for hanging in there. the marathon is nearly over. in the event you choose your wife over whiskerino, you are, in fact, a better man than me - my wife and yours would applaud your daring! as will i...after we shame you, of course.

hankbobs says:
@folliclejuju - so right about the floss. it totally sucks. Last year I kept the beard through May 1st, it became totally impossible. This year the beard is really starting to get to me for some reason. My wife hate's my beard too. Kissing is no fun at all. But I am part of a band of 500 brothers, and I would not shave, not now. Luckily my wife has not made any demands. She too has worked very hard at helping me with every photo. She would not want to see me shamed. Please don't shave @Beardwinner! Please let him stay Mrs. Beardwinner!

mackle says:
All this rallying for you and I assume you've already shaved. You'll be missed sir. Sorry your wife couldn't hold out for another two weeks (she is married to you for a lifetime) but we understand.. you're doing what you think is best. Sorry for the little jab there.. what's a Whiskerino Shame without a little guilt??

Good luck and Godspeed.
