Congratulations to Germany’s Elmar Weisser, pictured above. Elmer is the overall winner of the 2011 World Beard and Moustache Championships which were held in Trondheim, Norway over the last weekend.
The biannual beard-off’s overall winner – with a beard elaborately shaped into a moose at one end – is no stranger to the competition, having taken the top prize at the 2005 event held in Berlin with a beard sculpted to look like the Brandenburg Gate and at the 2007 England championships in which he showed up with a beard shaped to resemble the Tower Bridge.
Here’s the detail of this work of art…
Why a moose? Well, it is a Moose-tache after all!
