Grandpa Seth: The Goblins’ Favorite Beard

November 11, 2011

*today’s fan friday beard was selected by Dominic Zanfardino*

HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!!!!!!!! Today we salute Grandpa Seth from Troll 2. I think today’s beard will only be appreciate and understood by a few, but I’m ok with that. Let me start off by saying that if you haven’t seen the movie Troll 2, go see it… NOW! I laughed my ass off from start to finish and the best part is that this movie is supposed to be scary. Anywho, in the movie the young protagonist, Joshua, is visit by his Grandpa Seth who warns him against his family’s upcoming vacation to the town of Nilbog because it’s the kingdom of the Goblin’s. Now I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t mention key plot points. But just know that without the help of Grandpa Seth, the Waits family would have never gotten out of Nilbog. You can see Grandpa Seth’s wisdom and cunning perfectly exemplified in his beard. Grandpa Seth and his beard always know best, except when it comes to immediately adjusting yourself to the layout of a house. But let me tell you, it takes a special grandpa and a special kind of beard to have complete faith in your 8 year old grandson to throw a malatov cocktail into your own family’s living room. Some might say Grandpa Seth was a bit of a “whack-job” or “not on the level”, but I say pish-posh to them, let the man be. If encouraging your grandson to urinate on his family’s dinner is out of line, consider me the first one out of line. Grandpa Seth’s beard truly is one of the seven wonders of Utah and it’s a damn shame he never stared in his own movie. But, then again, how could one have topped his beard’s performance in Troll. Grandpa Seth’s beard was one of the most inspirational beards of low budget films in 1990 and we will never forget his bravery on that grim day in Nilbog, and for that, we salute you!
