Thing was interviewed yesterday for a news piece about some digging machine in Seattle.

 

See his amazing Christmas beard at about 2:16 on the video...

I vote @Thing changes his forum title to 'Taxpayer' to commemorate the occasion.

I only did the no shave November bit.  I would need to let it grow for a couple more months before I could challenge Mr. Moore to a beard off

Hey Monkey,

 

Apparently folks at Thing's work want to make a mug and t-shirt of his wonderful interview. I wonder if it might be appropriate fodder for a quick cartoon type thing :)

Very cool, thing :) And if it -does- turn out to be an alien spacecraft, you're going to end up looking very wise, my friend.

This monkey pic made me laugh - for some reason it is not etched in my head as what you actually look like :D

Really? Oh dear, that must be corrected forthwith. *Pulls out power tools* Now, hold still; this will only hurt a lot. *whirrrRRRRRR*

There's no such thing as bad coverage, as long as they spell your name correctly.

Any rumours that I have grown a beard to play Santa at a local sorority and have young girls sit on my lap is totally without foundation!!!

 

Also there is no plot for me to replace santa for profit.  Nothing to see here

It helps if you shave the beard.
