Introducing the No More Shame Campaign™

Please watch this important public service announcement:

The No More Shame Campaign™ ( or hit play on the embedded video in my info section on the right )

As of this posting there are currently 20 beards that have been lost for at least 7 days. If anyone has the ability to reach out to these beards, please do so. We should make it our goal today to save all 20 of them.

Ps. This is not a campaign for King Beard. My dream is that someone who is close to rock bottom, staring at that their razor.. that today, someone tells them they love their beard, and they carry on. If one of these trouble souls were to carry on, and some day win King Beard. THAT would be the greatest.

hankbobs says:
@mattyc - no, what would be awesome would be if we lived in a world where beards were not senselessly destroyed humans for their own personal gains. If that video saves one beard, then I guess I can sleep tonight..but there is so much work to be done.

The newly formed International Beard Love Foundation had it's first meeting last night.

A lot was discussed, but it became clear that there is a general mistrust of the intentions of Team Poison. We need clarification on this matter ASAP.

Question: Is 'Beard Poison' the arch-enemy of 'Beard Love'? @JamesC @OzzyNelson and @mattyc have already voiced approval for the No More Shame Campaign™. We do not want to make enemies, but we are considering launching a campaign with advertisements all over the Internet, to "Poison Rats, Not Beards" and "Beard Poison Makes Beards Sad Pandas"

We would appreciate a response from Team Poison at your earliest convenience.

I'm all for the No More Shame campaign but I'm confused by your count of 20 people that haven't posted. Today is the 14th,seven days ago would be the 7th. Counting everyone who hasn't posted since the 7th there is a total of 9 people ready to be shamed. Not 20.

where has my math gone wrong?

Matt Groening would be proud of that logo for this campaign

hankbobs says:
oh, @mackle that was at 2AM this morning. 11 of those 20 have posted since then. That was my goal for the day to get people that knew all 20 of them to get them to post.
