Those Bears thought They had Beards? Hah!

www.worldbeardchampionships.com

So IML and Bear Pride X have come and gone leaving the hirsutophiles among you with a nagging sense of ennui. Just a few days ago it was so much hair, so little time. Now it's just the same old same old. Well perk up, kiddies! Check out the World Beard Championships. Whoulda thunk that a bunch of white guys could create hairstyles to rival an inner city prom—and working with beard hair no less. Crap. I can barely grow my pathetic little Jedediah chin goatee.So just how good is that gaydar?

Fans of Graham Norton may recall his playing a little game called Gay or Eurotrash where his viewers tried to guess if people captured on the streets of London were gay, or just visiting from Brussels. Now you can play the home version thoughtfully put together by the online 'zine Blair. While you are there make sure you also check out Blair's Lesbian or German Lady game. (Though perhaps someone should point out that Martina N. is not German)Paint Maggot!

www.maggotart.com

Here AT WWWeird we love people who create art in unusual ways: painting with their asses, out of toast, out of marshmallow peeps, etc. We also have a fondness for creepy crawlies. Maggots? Leeches? Bring 'em on! We proudly present the Maggot Art website. Modern painters are so stupid. No need to lift a brush, just dip some maggots in paint and let them crawl across the canvas. That creating the painting probably kills them just makes it more poignant. I mean, doesn't everyone want to die for art?Which came first, the chicken or the eglu?

www.omlet.co.uk

For both of you out there with domestic chickens as pets we are happy to present the home page of Omlet, proud purveyors of poultry paraphernalia. If'n yer housin' chickens, you needs yerself an Eglu chicken house. Although honestly, the bright colors and sleek lines of the modern iMac-influenced eglu may clash just a wee bit with your plaster yard gnomes and mirrored gazing ball (not to mention the next-door trailer's lawn flamingoes).
