Well, friends, the end is at hand.

I thought I might actually complete Whiskerino: The Final Chapter, but forces beyond my control compel me to throw in the towel. The New Year inevitably beats you over the head with its "fresh start." Coupled with my impending 31st birthday in mid-February and the bit of OCD I picked up in college, I was bound to crack before long. And, like @wiseacre, once Throwdown attendance was ruled out, there was even less motivation to see it through.

Bottom line: Most of you guys can rock a beard, but I just don't think I'm a beard guy -- a sentinment shared by fellow Hall of Shamer @taber. It's taken BC2K3 and three Whiskerinos to figure it out, but I'm just not. Compared to others, honestly, my level of participation was never quite adequate. Let's face it, I'm no King Beard.

With that said, sorry for letting Team Livermush down, @elldub. Stay strong, remaining Carolina crew.

Good luck and godspeed, gentlemen.

@mackle had the best line about @wiseacre leaving: he said it was like one of your childhood friends saying he doesn't want to be your friend anymore because he can't go to your birthday party.

SHAMEful behavior.

This was your best beard yet. See you soon!

mackle says:
@deuce is right.. your beard was LEGIT this time. Keep that in mind next time you feel like growing one, you are quite capable.

I love the hazing that goes on when someone says they are leaving the site but I won't join in. You're quality folk Robbie and I've nothing bad to playfully chant in your direction. Take care, keep up the good work with the freelance stuff (saw your latest site.. so good) and enjoy the family! Tell Amy and the baby hello from all of us.

Godspeed @heyrevolver
