That's right, folks, it's a sad day indeed. The wonderful competition that could, couldn't. Bound to the fate of its predecessor. Sad, sad, sad..
When I first announced the competition, I thought I was getting a pretty decent response. I tried to ignore all those replies saying, “I'd grow a beard if I was old enough”. Which I tried to respond with by saying, it doesn't matter! It's just fun. I also had some women say they'd enter if they were men, so for fun I made an honorable mentions list (sorry for messaging you guys, I had to follow the list, after all). That was cool, a little added fun.
Then I had people say they weren't willing to shave for the competition. I can understand that, I guess. It wasn't the worst that happened, and certainly wasn't why this competition had to be canceled. Of course I'm talking about all the people that signed up but never posted their mug in the forum
. I'm not sure what's up with that, we only had two.
I'd actually like to give out a special thank you to Gregory Hall
! You guys are awesome and I'd like to give you a gold star or something. Maybe we can go play Mario together or something. You guys are free to continue or quit, either way I announce you guys to be the winners.
Maybe we'll have better luck next year but for now, that's all, folks.
