The story behind Bengals fan’s beard


width="620" />

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.


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.
