America has bred some odd competitions. One of the weirdest competitions we’ve found thus far, and felt the compelling need to share with you is the World Beard & Moustache Championships, an “international sport of bearding” competition that brings together those with the craziest beards every two years.

Prepare to be amazed by watching the below video of the 1991 Beard and Moustache Championship in Tacoma, Washington.

Thanks, Neatorama for digging up this gem of a video to show off America’s infinite talents for creating rare beard beauties.

Listen and watch the reaction of the judges as they see the wondrous beard architecture of contestant, Dean Beacon who has managed to achieve the kind of facial hair greatness that would make the likes of Paul Bunyan cry.

We won’t spoil the video with a description of what he created. Just watch. Trust us. Just watch.
