I think you might be slipping a bit in your old age, Scott. I can totally see it becoming a trend... if for no other reason than because you posted it on your blog.

Ten years from now, back beards will be standard. Wails of anguish and unimaginable pain will resound across the world. The question of "WHY?" will be asked over and over. Philosophers and the FBI will eventually trace the start of this "fad" to Scott's blog. Now, what they will do to Scott upon discovering this, I don't know. Your guess is as good as mine. But I'm guessing it won't be conductive to a long life.

The only question that remains is; will Scott be remembered as the funny comic guy, or the dude who started the back-beard craze?

Hmmmm...
It's stupid, offensive, and hard to ignore...
I'm afraid we may have a hit there

nice post! keep the good job. ahem...

Oh, well I'm good at spotting stuff that isn't going to become a trend too. I predict that eating your shoes when they wear out will not become a trend.

A back beard? Or a sweat-catcher?

Amused Aussie

I think that has become my absolute favourite analogy in the whole world:

"It was like watching Satan humping a porcupine
without lubrication. Horrible, yet impossible to look away."

I just breached copyright and used it on our GM - who threatened to fire me if I ever uttered the phrase again whilst in his presence - I plan on using it in front of him atleast twice more today. Viva la Revolution!

(By the way - royalty checks in the mail!)

Satan bonks porcupines? Man, I learn something everytime I read this blog...

watch your back!

I bet he was a professional wrestler! Everyone has to have a different gimmick, that sounds like one that hasn't been used yet.
I saw a hairy-backed guy at the beach when I was a little girl, and I didn't want to get into that greasy water (I thought) after that.
First post?

Was the beard where he could feel it while showering, or was it in a rather hard to reach spot? Because I know if I had to shave some hairy guy's back I'd probably leave him a beard and not tell him.

"I don't see back beards becoming a trend."
Except, of course, that people who lack reading comprehension skills will read this and think that Scott Adams wants to see men growing and displaying back beards. So it will wind up becoming a trend, even though *no one* wants to see this. Thanks, Scott.

Btw, "...watching Satan humping a porcupine without lubrication." Absolutely hilarious! Where do you come up with these images? And does it hurt when you do?

Martin

Scott..Do you find your job stressful?

Pray more..

Andrew

Maybe he's just a lonely guy and that's the only part of his back he can't reach.

JSG

I like hairy men. I don't find back hair repulsive. Is there something wrong with me?

Beaker

There is a trend no one needs to see. It ranks right up there with mohawk hairdos mixed with bell bottoms.

Tom the Pooklekufr

Other disturbing hair trends:

The pubic 'fro. I once saw a guy on a bus holding the hand-rail in such a way that his shirt lifted over his gut, displaying a rich 'fro poking several inches over the top of his pants. A 'fro Macy Gray could be proud of. My first thought was one of disgust. My second thought was, "does he pomade it for dates?" I hope I never see one again.

Neck-beards. That more-than-stubble growing only on the underside of the chin. What is it for? To increase grip when tucking something under the chin? An Einsteinian innovation to allow one to have a beard, and at the same time not worry about food dripping on it?

ily

I should grow a breast beard. :D

Mike

That would be the remainants of a prehensile tail. Remember evolution?

Chip Nance

What! You didn't take a photo of this thing. I've got to admit I've lead a sheltered life and don't know what a back beard looks like.

Anonymous Tim

Sorry, but now it's too late. I have a hairy back, and it needs to be shaved. But now that you mentioned it, I think I will at least try to have a back beard. It also sounds very convenient - if you are using a epilator and doing it yourself, the middle is one of the areas that is the hardest to reach. Now I don't even need to try anymore. Thank you!

The more I think about it, the better it sounds. People like me used to be despised by females as HOBs, but very soon we will be much more desirable than the average male with a hairless back. My whole life could change...

Thank you for putting that horrendous image in my head. It will burn through it for most of the day and will unfortunately be the last blinkin' thought in my head before I sleep.

T.G.

Last summer we were on family vacation in Venice, on a crowded "vaporetto", we managed to get to the open back, being at last alone there, till an enormous woman of 2 meters or more (about 7 feet), with a real big ass got there, and my son was nearly choking with her vast ass on his face, at last, that was all what is remembered of that holydays.

About the back beard, hahahaha, I admire people that can do that sort of things.

Josh O

This Post offends me, because I have a back beard. I demand you remove it immediately just like Friday's post!

Dossy Shiobara

The only thing worse, Scott, would be if he had it braided into tight little cornrows.

Yow. Enjoy that visual for a moment. :-)

ory

Actually that would be more of a fad than a trend.
