Blackbeard: The Booty Seeking Beard
*Today’s Friday fan favorite was selected by Carolyn Piggot*
HAPPY NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!!!!! day we salute Blackbeard the Pirate!! I have received many great submissions for Fan Friday this year but I selected the beard I saw most fitting. And how could I not select a guy who had “beard” in his (nick)name. Blackbeard’s real name is actually Edward Teach, and yes he was a real person. Blackbeard and his beard traveled the seven seas and was known as one of the most malicious pirates of all time! He pillaged and plundered and stole from some of the best sea captains in the world. He relied on his image to strike fear into his enemies and what better way than to do so than with a big burly beard. Blackbeard’s beard is one that will live on in infamy as a malicious, evil beard, and for that, we salute you!
