So I wanted to start a thread as well and the first thing on my mind is goatees. Goatees strike me as sort of the Platypus of facial hair. It's like, a little joke, you know? A joke played by God or possibly just by Cool Guys on impressionable young guys with not-quite-developed beards yet. As a quick disclaimer I'd just like to say that if any of ya'll are rocking a goatee, that's cool too, 'cos due to a system I like to call the Pecking Order, you guys get to pick on guys with even lesser facial hair, i.e. me. Anywaaaays; goatees. The thing is, I only ever see them being worn by nerds, and the only people who think they're cool ever, are total nerds. They might try to conceal that they are nerds [Rob Swire, cough fucking cough cough] and they're probably pretty heavy in denial. It's even possible the reason they got [grew? whatever...] the goatee in the first place was to mask their nerddom. So where was I going with this?
