So here's this guy. A beard full of beer? Oh Bengals fan, you silly willy, you. You might even say that's a fair amount of nonsense for a guy wearing a shirt that reads, "No nonsense."

There is a story behind this, however.

FOX 9 Cincinnati caught up with the man, whose name is Garey Faulkner, a native Cincinnatian who grew the beard for a year to prove he could to some friend who bet $1,000 against him.

He never did get that money, but he did become mildly Internet-famous Wednesday, and that's its own reward.
