In the category of "so absurd you just have to believe it", comes this story here about a man who was forced to eat his beard after an argument. Naturally the battle royale was over something important like a tractor, and sadly for this fella, it escalated to where he had to have a hairy snack.
"Troy offered to buy it from me for $250 dollars. I paid twenty bucks for it. He thought I was trying to cheat him," Westmoreland told WLEX-TV.
"One thing led to another, and before I knew it, there were knives and guns and everything just went haywire."
"(Then) they cut my beard and forced me to eat it," he said.
So remember kids, beards are dangerous, and should only be handled with caution and by professionals. Otherwise you might end up like this poor guy.
