"2,747 Toothpicks in My Beard"

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Hey, man, if you can get 2,000 toothpicks in your beard, why stop there? Reach for the stars. Try for 3,000. For this one bearded fella, one of life's fun little side projects is getting his chin hairs stuffed with little wooden sticks and having his wife document the feat on video. And, of course, sharing that video on YouTube. Why? Hmmm. Probably better not to ask. Today's video lunch has 2,747 toothpicks...but, sorry--not a one is holding a half a sandwich together.
