Gentlemen, beards, this is my last bow.

In my left hand, an unspeakable substance. I'm sorry, but I have to do some things so I can finally grow up. One of those is getting a job. I have an interview tomorrow. I have to clean up. Let me be perfectly clear. I think a beard can be incredibly professional-looking. A well-grown beard commands respect. One day, I hope I can command that kind of respect with a beard of my own. What I've grown this Whiskerino is, sadly, not much of a beard. I suppose I'm too young yet. Well, this too shall pass.

In my right hand, a representation of all the good things I've seen this Whiskerino. Beards banding together, inspiring submissions, tacos, and of course the wonderful, magical, #kittentuesday. I know I wasn't the best beard. I'd like to thank you all for putting up with me, and for making this so memorable. It's been a real treat.

Happy #kittentuesday and happy bearding, whiskeroonis.

Good luck with the interview.

Some advice: When the interviewer asks if you have any questions, it is completely appropriate to ask about their official beard policy.

Happy #kittentuesday to you buddy. Glad you could join us for even half a term. Good luck on the interview as well.

In the quiet he stood, eating invisible nachos, holding the unspeakable, and loving the kitten that granted wishes. He began to hover, smelling the ether as the razor in the adjacent room called to him, begging him to join the ranks of smoothfacedness. He wiped the tear away and answered the call. It was a sad day, but he had fought the good fight. The battle was over.

it's always a bummer to lose any participant (particularly to The Man) but it's an understandable aspiration and we all wish you the best of luck.
