Okay, I have to find out just how far tornadogrrrl and friends are from the rest of the universe I know. The subject: Mutton chops. As in the style of facial hair, not the meat dish.

Poll #844763 Mutton Chops

Mutton Chops?

ZOMG why are you even asking I don't care what the context is the answer is yes.

A fine style for the 19th century, but one that should stay there.
2(16.7%)

Maybe on some people. But not you, Kevin.

Too many lines to keep symmetrical; too much work.

Eww. Hairy.

I think mutton chops would suit you particularly well.

Why, are you planning on becoming a robber baron?

Things I learned while making this poll: It's hard to find photos searching for "mutton chops", you really have to search for "sideburns" and then decide which might apply. Also, Kevin O'Mara has the best CC-licensed sideburns on Flickr.

Keeping facial hair well-kept-looking (combed & trim & clean) is much more important than any styling choice.

which I think counts against the "it would be easier to maintain than less facial hair because there's less surface area to shave" argument.

Yeah, having a beard is not much less work than having a clean face. Trimming it is slightly more involved, but I only have to do it once every other day or once every 3 days.

It's probably a good thing I can't grow facial hair. I would do all kinds of crazy things with it, but eventually revert to scruffy-looking hippie, and nobody wants that.

Me too. Although I have a certain wistfulness for a beard long enough to braid. I think I somehow believe that a braided beard wouldn't get into everything.

I just had a mental image of you as a female dwarf. It was... very odd, but somehow fitting.

You certainly may.
after all, it's not as if you can stuff the ballot box,
unless you start hacking accounts. ;)

but you might have to explain things to Jes.

We are talking about a style of facial hair that would look stunning and impressive on Kev. I keep telling him so, but he does not yet believe me.

kevin, I radio-buttoned in the answer about colonialism, because how can you not.

but what I really think is that, if everyone thinks it's attractive, it is attractive. which is why my answer should be read as DO IT.

thank you for voting your response has been recorded in the computerbase

technically speaking, I don't think it's a radio button, because you can mark as many of them as you like.

and what Qwantz says is not "everyone thinks it's attractive" but "everyone says it is" (emphasis added), which is not the same thing at all.

you're right on all counts, bless you. a person with such an eye for detail deserves a 19th-century face-style for sure.

Awww, that's mighty sweet of you. What'd you end up with, sideburns-wise?
