At least it was for a good cause.
Students at the University of Toledo medical school grew their facial hair like many others in the month of November, but they saw an opportunity to do more. During the course of the month, people could bid on the rights to shave a beard however they so chose. All proceeds would go to their community clinic.
Ali, the owner of the beard, lucked out when the winning bidder let him shave his preferred NBA team into his fuzz.
It could have been much, much worse.
