News Story Of The Day: Man Forced To Eat Own Beard

They should have made him eat those glasses while they were at it. And that hat. Actually, his entire head.

Ky. Man Forced To Eat Own Beard

Fight Over Tractor Sale Led To Odd Meal

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. ( — A central Kentucky man said he's waiting for justice to be served after two men shaved his beard, then made him eat it.

Harvey Westmoreland and his brother got into a fight with James Hill and Troy Holt in May. The dispute was over a tractor Westmoreland was trying to sell to one of the men. Westmoreland said the men felt like they were being ripped off and that's when the fight started.

"Troy offered to buy it from me for $250 dollars. I paid twenty bucks for it. He thought I was trying to cheat him," Westmoreland told WLEX-TV.

"One thing led to another, and before I knew it, there were knives and guns and everything just went haywire."

"(Then) they cut my beard and forced me to eat it," he said.

Hill and Holt pleaded guilty. It's expected they'll be fined and sentenced to supervised diversion.


  1. Make 'im eat his beerd, Zeke! Come quietly, maybe we'll let ya plea bargain!

  2. I think he's eaten more than his beard.

  3. Why am I not surprised the dispute was over a TRACTOR?

  4. Oh well, he probably needed more fiber in his diet anyway. :D

  5. It looks like he ate his brother as well as his beard.

  6. Hilarious comments. I'm laughing. But Daisy--the thought of that guy using the bathroom made my face contort just now. I'm hoping it will unstick soon; I'm already ugly enough w/o a goofy expression.

  7. Put this guy on the next volume of people you don't want to follow in the bathroom.

    I imagine that without the beard, his chins look like old lady boobs.
