Whiskerino 2009

Throwdown details coming together. Please attend!

Monday morning with Biggie Molls.

This Whiskerino has been unique in that I have had far less time to participate and yet this is the longest I've gone with a beard. I am not sure what has transpired since the last Whiskerino to make me so much more busy, but it has been frustrating that I have not been able to take the quality of photos I'm used to, comment, and dwell in perpetual beard spirit. It has been fun to see some new juggernauts arise after the departure of Whiskerino mainstays earlier in the year.

A massive thanks to Mackle. I hope everyone takes a sincere moment to realize the amount of work that he has put into this. This beast of a website is unlike anything I've ever seen and the amount of fellowship it's spawned is near unfathomable. None of this happens without Mackle. Period.

Glad to have met so many good dotcomrades on this. See you on the other side.

R E N A U D says:
Molly is totally unphased by Misfit Daddy because it's normal occurrence in the Gilmore household.

Oh, and tell Molly that she needs to hold the cuteness right there so as not to surpass my daughter's cuteness.

If this is how you choose to go out I can't help but approve. You'll be missed but this is too perfect.

I agree with @mackle. I agree with sadness in my heart and a wheat pasta in my stomach.

Well, shoot. I guess I need to revise my earlier comment:

It's as if "bowing out early" is on the checklist for Whiskerino Alums. The Pose? Check. King Beard? Check. Bow out early?

At least you brought it full circle.

General Lee says:
jnon, i do not think King is in my future today. But no worries.

Phil says:
I sympathize. Can't get up the energy to post every day or follow the themes.

I guess we're all growing up. But we're gonna rock the Throwdown.

You are truly one of the greats. Fare well!

1st- this is an amazingly great/cute picture, especially remembering this same shot from last go around.

3rd- i'm crowning this, you can't stop me.

I like to believe that the reason you post like this once in a while is just because you are too tired to wash up when you get home from work.

johnny says:
to continue with the bad puns a la @rolf bastard, if you are indeed bowing out then this truly is a GHOUL'S NIGHT OUT.

this really is a great shot, as was the 2007, it's a shame there won't be a 2011 where you could get both her and the upcoming brother in there together!

Just Jamey says:
I wish you weren't bowing out. But this is a great way to go out.

General Lee was a great man. Dunno how much you are a parody of him or not. But he was awesome.

You made the top 20 on your way out. Not too shabby.
