Whiskerino 2009

At the Throwdown we met @jason, a super cool whiskerdude. He and @sariebell discussed at length their love for sweat sandwiches, aka Krystal's (White Castles can qualify if that's your thing), and how many they thought they could eat. @sariebell confidently said "20". @jason replied, "No way". @sariebell ate 20 (@tedford gave up at 15). @sariebell wins. Doesn't she always.

I sincerely want to thank @mackle for all the hard work he's put into this, and @everyone for all the work they've put into making this a true community, and more than just a site about growing beards. It's been amazing meeting so many of you and I can honestly say I've formed lasting friendships. I don't want to say a long goodbye as I expect to be seeing many of you again, or at least keeping up with your exploits in other internet lands. So I'll just go with a nod and a TTFN.

Please also take a moment to visit @sariebell's page to see our farewell alternate and say a few kind words to her as she has been as much (if not more) of a participant as I have this time around. I don't have to tell you that she's the best.

So alas, TTFN.

Thanks, husband, for being the best friend/husband/beard/partner in life a gal could ask for. And for letting me win.

Small bow to @sariebell.

Krystal beats White Castle anyday in my book too. This photo rocks, you guys always brought it- I've enjoyed keeping up. cheers!

tedford says:
@elldub no way we'll be able to make it next week i'm afraid (pesky jobs..). hanging with you, @rolfbastard, and @julialikesbeards is definitely in our future though. had a blast with those kids at the Throwdown (make sure they tell you about our adventures with the Brit). we will though be in NC from March 20 through a good bit of that next week. we've got to see what we can make happen. i'll definitely be in touch once i have a better idea what our plans are.

oh crap...i just asked @sariebell if she met the challenge! looks like she is a better eater than us both. awesome meeting you both, we'll have to meet up again sometime. k-ville isn't too far from atl, and i will visit there pretty often to see @brandon and my niece. let's make this happen...

HiImTerry says:
You guys are so awesome. I don't know what else I can say. Without you guys this Whiskerino would have been noticeably less great. Even if I didn't know that having you here would make it greater, it would have been less great and I would have felt it without even knowing why. Ya know?

That's about a sack full each, right? Damn.

we're definitely going to hang out next time we're in knoxville.

There is no real cat...therefor no real poison... instead enjoy this CLAME. It's got the same taste but much more pleasant.

oh...and the two of you are way cooler in real life than you are on the internet..which is saying a whole lot b/c you guys are pretty freaking awesome on the internets too. I WILL be visiting sometimes and there is nothing you can do to stop me.

You two are both awesome, I am so glad we got to hang out for a bit at the throwdown. Thanks for growing and showing with me bro! Let me know if you guys make it up to KC.

Davis says:
you guys are completely awesome. @sariebell might be more awesome (5 more burgers awesome, at least), but it's pretty close.

amanda and i are down in TN pretty often - knoxville might have to be added to the list of places we gotta hit up more.

aaaaaaaaaaaaand @sariebell is now eating the 5 i didn't finish.

He's not kidding. It's a problem. And addiction. Maybe an eating disorder or something.

revgoomba says:
I'll take care of @Emma and you take care of @sariebell (and I'd advise banning her from Krystal if you can - if that shit is anything like White Castle she won't have much longer to live at this rate).

See you in Scotland buddy!

I tried to eat 50 McDonalds chicken nuggets in one sitting once. I stopped at thirty, and totally understand why the word 'sweat' is in there.

It was a pleasure growing with you. See ya around.

1) When you come to NC next time, bring Krystals or don't come at all (we can't get them here).

2) You guys are awesome and I am excited to have you as friends.

3) Here's the deal... we'll be your break from NC family if you'll be our break from TN family.

4) Don't be frightened when you see me all naked-faced in a few weeks.

5) We're on for March 19.

That's way more Krystals that I could eat! She'd totally stomp me.

So great to meet you two this year. You're great people, and I hope that this is only the start of a long awesome friendship.

You guys are the best. I really hope we get to hang out in person again at some point. I feel like I have so many friends in Nashville/Knoxville that I feel obliged to make it down there on a regular basis or something.

You and the misses are good people. Let's keep in touch.

themightyjones says:
Awesome stuff. I got to take part in a conversation that you were also a bit a part of on @mOtke's deck, and I'm sorry I missed out on really getting to talk to you. Let's fix that sometime soon. Take care!

You both are awesome, I look forward to keeping up with your exploits. Also, I once ate 30 Krystal's...just saying

mu says:
You know I think I've had every fast food but Krystal and White Castle. I'm kinda snobbish about it really. I still like you though.

You have been great here! Wish we could have hung more, but hey it's been great sharing this with you!

ThatGuy says:



But I'm not sure you can say that @sariebell "WON" in this instance. My stomach started to hurt just reading the caption. It's been a total blast following you for the last four months, and I'm really glad I got a chance to chat with you and @sariebell at the bash. We'll be in touch on FB, and I'm sure we'll cross paths again...hopefully in about 2 months. Thanks for being so awesome.

dude, @mackle told me to tell you. you have to do Moustache May. when he lays the law down like that, you kinda have to comply.

jazzy, i already miss you. and it makes me sad that i only get to see you every two years, but now this gives me an excuse to drive out and see you again. i have a feeling theres no way we wont see each other again you know? so this isnt a goodbye from me but ill see you again real soon.

ps. private eyes is my favorite hall and oates song fyi.
pss. next time ill bring you the right tie. i hope.

mackle says:
here's the deal as I see it:

1) You have to do Moustache May. You have to. None of this user / onlooker stuff.. you must participate.

2) Eating 15 Krystals is not losing. @sariebell might have eaten more but you will soon find that she lost, big time.

3) You are totally awesome. I don't make it out to Knoxville much but I think I need to now.. if only to hang with you guys. Can we plan some sort of meet up with you and RolfBastard? I know he doesn't live in Knoxville but there's a whole region over there we need to keep together.

4) I am IM's. Email me and we can swap names so as to continue to keep in communication.

5) Thank you for being here. Thank you for being awesome. Thank you for having a rad lady. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
