Garibaldi – not just a deliciously tasty tea dunker consisting of currants squashed between two thin, oblong biscuits (more than a little reminiscent of an Eccles cake).
A Garibaldi is also a beard of distinction, and a recognised sub-division in the ‘Full Beard’ category of The World Beard Championships. As sported here by home grown Beard talent James Hood, the Garibaldi should be round and wide at the bottom (no longer than 20 cm from the bottom of the lower lip) and the moustache may not be separated from the beard or made prominent.
Think you’ve got what it takes to be a world beater? Well you’ve got just 600 days until the next world championships, so get growing folks! I’m expecting to see a strong archaeological showing in the Freestyle category.
