Here’s a selection of the de-beardening pictures we took of Paul for exceeding our donation total from last year.

  2. That’s so great.

    Epic to watch, epic to remember.
    Those kids had better be grateful.

  5. You really don’t look bad without the beard.

  6. Looks great, Paul.

    You totally pull off the Charlie Chaplain mustache.

  7. Sooooo … What would it cost for Paul’s eyebrows?

    They bother me, they just look wrong! … Like two big cartoon catapillars crawling above his eyes, telescopically magnifying his expressions like he’s the super hero: Brow-Man!

    I’ve got money for those eye brows!

    No wait, I’ve got $50 I’ll put down for one of them! Maybe some matching donations would clear up the other brow … if Paul is lucky!

    What do you say Paul?

  8. Paul should grow the beard back, but only almost back. He should keep it like the 4th or 5th picture. (the pictures with the titles “Mighty Twin Beard!” and “He’s so manly!” respectively). However, first he should do a few videos in his new look. At least one of the videos should have him in the Harry Potter look.

  9. Is he going to grow it back? I would really like to see Paul beardless in some LRRs

  10. Oh, God. He looks so… young.

    And that second-to-last picture looks almost exactly like someone I know. It’s uncanny.

  11. Paul Saunders = a young John Turturro?

  12. I don’t think Paul looks much like Harry Potter in that last pic. He does, however, bear an uncanny resemblance to Harold Ramis– better known as Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters.

  13. In the pic where he has the dark sunglasses, he kinda looks like Ramathorn from Super Troopers.

  14. Watching that slideshow of pictures while listening to “Space-Dye Vest” is depressing.

  15. He looks like Boris from Goldeneye in one pic, and Jer from Loadingreadyrun in another, it’s disturbing.

  16. no one sees groucho marx in the “plain stache” and “sailor” shots. It seems quite striking to me.

    That said, Paul, I think each step in the de-bearding is an improvement on your first state. I ay this as someone who has a beard, so I mean, I am generally for beards, but I think you should take this as a opportunity to switch it up. If you feel bald with no beard (though I think you look nice) go for one of the other options– the regular moustache works for you, which is rare.
