high-ranking politico to auction beard
Yeah, weird! And to be honest, he’s not that famous (internationally to noobs like me, that is) so I don’t think there’ll be buyers. Hehe! The head of Germany’s Social Democrats, who has ambitions to be his country’s next leader, is thinking about donating his beard to charity. Kurt Beck, who as party leader has a strong claim to lead the SPD into next year’s national election, said in a panel discussion in Mainz that he might shave off his beard to raise 1 million euros ($1.5 million) for charity. The politician said,
“It must be serious and not turn into a spectacle. The event would have to help the really needy. I’m still thinking about it”.
Beck’s beard, like the rest of his hair, is short, grey and bristly. He recently told reporters his wife Roswitha, a hairdresser, had said he had “hair like a guinea pig”. Yuck! Now, who would buy that?? LOL
