CeleBeardy Profile

By Connor Rice

While some may know Matthew Clark for his long brown bristles, we talked to the manager of the House Cafe, 263 E. Lincoln Highway, to get to know the man behind the beard.

Date of last shave?

Mother’s Day, May 11, 2008

Grooming techniques?

A little snip snip here, a little snip snip there, accompanied by a three-time-a-day brushing.

Favorite story about your beard?

Three years ago, I had a four-year beard, which I shaved completely off on Mother’s Day and went to visit my mother, and when my mother saw me she cried out, “My baby!”

Favorite beard (other than your own):

The “favorite beard award” goes to the ’70s G.I. Joe figure that had the beard. Seems to be the one that sticks in my mind the best. I remember being a kid and thinking G.I. Joe’s beard

was cool.

Final thoughts?

I aspire to inspire men around the globe to let it grow, yo!
