One Response to “About NeckBeard”


  1. Dear Neckbeard,
    I am a humble neckbeard collector and I would be most enamored if you could make mention of or link to my e-mazing collection of neckbeards on the world wide web (this is my digital neckbeard zoo available via the http protocol at http://neckbeardmania.blogspot.com ).

    Sincerest thanks you,
    Neckbeard Mania
