It is traditional, when removing a beard, to take off portions at a time and admire the result. I have removed my beard.
It is a legal requirement that during this process you need to do your best impression of Ron Mael. Sadly my bathroom now looks like I've been holding badger baiting contests in it. And can I just say that, unlike Mr Matthew 'rough and tough' Fox, no shaving or skin care products were used apart from a razor, some water and a pair of scissors.
