2009 World Beard Champion -- The Wicker Man?!

5/25/2009 3:13 PM PDT
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.

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.
