So let’s try something. How about we grow beards during the furlough?
Are you game? Will you grow a furlough beard? What better way to show solidarity and identify ourselves as laid off feds?
Furloughed Feds unite! Grow those beards! Think of the money you’ll save on razors!!
ARE YOU WITH ME???
I am already on it! To ad on I say we shave them to staches when the furlough ends
You know what, I’m in! My wife might hate it though…
What if we have a pre-furlough beard already? Should we just make it all scraggly?
Two words Sean: Tiger Stripes
Ressler says he’s with us in spirit but ” my facial hair game is weak i can grow a weak a** goatee and thats it”
What if I turned my goatee into an unruly soul patch?
P.S. What will the women do?
nah andy, you turn it into a King Leonidus goatee
Soul patches, mutton chops, unruly goatees. Do what you have to. Will your wife get mad? You bet she will! We need to stick together!
As for the ladies? You’re on your own. Not a line I wish to cross 🙂
It’ll be gross, patchy and thick haired…I can’t wait.
I feel like Conan O’Briew like we’re showing solidarity with Conan O’Brien when he grew his beard during his version of a shutdown.
Just a few more yeses and we’ll have enough beards for the sexiest calendar to hit DC ever!
I volunteer for Mr. November!
You know, Sean, I do kinda look like this guy:
That’s awesome! Now just make it a little thicker and more manly… haha.
I appreciate the spirit but Andy is right in that it does leave out the women. We could wear a ribbon with a color or pattern yet to be determined.
Aww I wish I could grow a furlough-beard.
For women wanting to participate but that can’t grow furlough beards, might I suggest an alternative: furlough legs.
I love that this is the #1 Top Content on GovLoop right now.
Thanks everyone for the great comments! Fingers crossed!
I’m in …. but I already have a beard
ooohhh furlough legs! I’m in!
Well, looks like we averted a shut down!
Sorry, its getting warm – just shaved mine.
What will the women do? This will get me in trouble but its meant at satire.
They will break out into five groups.
1) Those that think its a bad idea and goes against traditional values
2) Those that belive they should have the right to and that right needs protective legislation
3) Those that embrace it as an alternative life style others should accept
4) Those that feel its one more way men keep women out of the game
5) Those that feel its the governments responsibility to ensure everyone has equal access to ones facial experssion.
Who wins? The media covering it all.
I like your idea to grow a beard during furlough! 🙂
Great (Coast Guard) minds think alike, Benjamin!
I polled my friends on Friday night for style suggestions – my personal choice pictured here – and in spite of an 11th hour deal will keep growing mine until Obama signs a final 2011 appropriation bill.
Since this budget battle is just a warm-up to the FY2012 hearing season, I may need to keep it going all year!
@John – Great look! But how do I grow my eyebrows to match that look?
Now that I’ve turned 40, they are coming in nicely.
Love the photo – Romulan Commandar right?
Hmm, could not be a Wal*Mart greater but its a great idea.
