Protest The Hero guitarist Tim Millar has one hell of a beard. But is it the world’s best beard?

Millar thinks so, and he will be competing in the World Beard and Mustache Championships. This Saturday, May 23, the Championships will be held in Anchorage, Alaska and Millar will be competing in the “Alaskan Whaler” category.

Behind that kickass beard lies a heart of gold:

“I’d like to raise money for Locks of Love, a charity that makes wigs for cancer patients under 18. Even though they won’t accept a beard hair donation, I’m cutting off and donating my hair and if I can raise enough money through the Beard Team Canada site, I’ll also shave off my beard after the competition and start fresh for 2011. It’s for a good cause and if we raise enough money, I’ll reveal my chin that has been hiding for the last three years. I’m sure you’re all curious to see if I really do have a chin.”

I’m shocked such a competition even exists, but I’m glad it does. Luckily we can all see how it turns out, as there will be a film crew present during the competition.

And Locks of Love wouldn’t take a beard as epic as his? If I were a cancer patient, I’d love a wig made out of that shag. Come on, just look at it. You want to frolic through those folicles.
