Octo-beard?: Weirdest Facial Hair of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel
I think Chicago Bulls Center Drew Gooden aspires to overtake Dennis Rodman as weirdest NBA player in history. He wants to be called “The Big Drizzle”, whatever that means, and had a weird haircut of a small patch of hair–which he says he tore off of Rasheed Wallace’s head–on the back of his head.
Now, the 6’10” player has is sporting this bizarre new beard that has seven or eight tentacles. I call it the “Octobeard”, for lack of a better name. The “I’m neither Amish nor a Rabbi” beard, doesn’t exactly roll off your tongue.
Let’s hope this form of facial hair never becomes a trend like goatees.

Yup, this guy is strange. Here’s his theme song. . .

There are rare times where I disagree with the conservative goddess. And here is one of those times. Sorry Deb, gotta disagree with you on this one. The octobeard looks kick-ass. It’s something new and orignal and different that isn’t a psychonut idea.
I’d kill to have a beard like that.

I feel terrible saying this, but that dudes beard looks like Don Kings hair.

Perhaps someone should write Drew Gooden that his beard has its own tsitsit. 😉
