    Town with sense of humor may require men to grow beards

    DETROIT (AP) — The men of Zilwaukee may soon face a hairy dilemma every morning.
    Some city council members want to require all adult men to grow beards — or buy a $10 shaving permit — as part of celebrations of the town's 150th anniversary.

    City council member Robert Bohnsack, who proposed the regulation, said the council would vote on it Monday.

    If it passes, men in the town of about 1,800 would stop shaving as early as Jan. 6 and keep growing their facial hair until the anniversary celebrations in June, when a beard-growing contest would be held.

    Bohnsack said the draft of the proclamation mirrored one adopted for Zilwaukee's centennial in 1954 — except then the permit cost $3.

    Supporters said the proposal was serious — but not too serious.

    "If you don't want to pay the fine, that's cool," said council member Eugene Jolin, who, like Bohnsack, is bearded. "We don't want to make anybody mad."

    If the proposed shaving ban seems a bit unusual, so is the very town founding it is meant to celebrate.

    Wink Ok...

    My guess is most men would love this, just another reason not to shave..@!!




    "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming.

    WOOHOO, what a ride!!!"
