2009 World Beard Champion -- The Wicker Man?!

5/25/2009 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A proud new champion emerged at last night's World Beard and Moustache Championships -- the greatest event on the planet (about facial hair) -- and on the cold stage in Anchorage, Alaska, he proved the basket look totally works on your face.

Click to view!

The new King of Beards -- chosen out of nearly 300 people -- was a guy named David Traver, who pulled in the top prize for his unbe-weave-able wicker beard of awesomeness.

Mr. Traver, we salute you. Don't ever shave.

Nothing wrong with this competition; it's good, clean fun and these guys probably take better care of their hair than most people, including some entertainers! In response to Comment 5, Woodstock was in 1969, not the '70s.

Reminds me of that episode of Family Guy where Peter grew a beard and then an endangered species of bird moved in, so he couldn't cut the beard because it was their home. Except Family Guy is a ridiculous cartoon, and this is real life.

That pantsuit smacks of Hillary. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's Hill before her assistant shaves her down in the morning.
