Chester A. Arthur: Biker

November 25, 2012

Bad ideas, Journal, Lloyd, School

It’s like I lost a bet with a hurricane. Actually, it’s like I lost a bet to middle school students. No, it’s more like I lost a bet with Mr. Krall.

Mr. Krall and Mr. Weiting put together a fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy victims. As the middle schoolers raised more and more money, the teachers would have to do various things. At something like $750.00 I would have to wear Chicago Cubs gear for a day and at $2000.00 all of the (male) teachers would have to grow (or shave into) mustaches. Last I heard they had raised over $6,000.00, and if you include various other donations that Mr. Krall and Mr. Wieting put together, I think they were well over $10,000 in money, gift cards and supplies. The two of them drove a truck full of stuff out to the east coast over Thanksgiving break. The name of their undertaking: Sandystache.

I know, it's a shame, right?

So here’s my facial hair contribution. I’m going to start off with a Chester A. Arthur and soul patch combination that I have named the Biker A. Arthur. Then I’m going down to a straight Chester A. Arthur. After that I’m thinking a Fu Manchu; then whatever that beautiful thing on Nick Offerman’s face is.

So long old friend.

Chester A. Arthur: Biker

For those of you keeping track at home, this will mark my fifth foray in Presidential Facial Hair; having completed  a Lincoln (photo not available) a Van Buren, a Benjamin Harrison (which is pretty much my normal bread) and a Harry S. Truman (Who wore a goatee on vacations).

    That’s an amazing money total! Your progression will happen each day? That’ll be fun 🙂

    I always call a Fu Manchu a “Hulk Hogan”, but I suppose fewer and fewer people know who he is. Maybe if he were president, his facial hair could be immortalized for future generations. Hulk Hogan for president!

    Throw in the last mustache as the “Charlie Chapman”.

    Will you be doing the top of your head at some point, too? I bet the kids would raise an incredibly large amount of money for that.
