Beard of the Day: Penelope Finally Gets The Armitage Thing


Armitage looks like a homeless guy.


For years, I kept hearing about "Richard Armitage"-this and "Richard Armitage"-that, and "Oh, he's so hot!" and "Oh, he's so swoony!" and I'm all "What the hell? I don't get it."

See photos below as evidence....


Armitage looks like a dork.




Armitage looks sort of slimy.




Armitage looks like a dweeb.




Armitage.....meh. Wha?



And then one day, I was perusing some photos on Tumblr, and I was all.....WHOOOOAAAAAA! What is this? And I discovered, it was Armitage. With Beard!



Schwing! Armi-Buddy-Baby!





Uh....uh.....uh......




I surely hope he's thinking "I'll never shave again."


Which just goes to show....Sometimes the beard really does make the man.

And sometimes Penelope could possibly maybe momentarily be wrong.

Happy Beardy Friday!
Penelope

I agree...he looks better with the beard.
Hope you're feeling better.

Kaetrin said...

I think he's pretty yummy either way. He definitely looks different with a beard though!

Do you like his voice? He's narrated 3 (?) Georgette Heyer abridged audiobooks and I find his narration very swoony....

If I ever bump into him on the streets of London, I'll ask for a signed photo dedicated to you and point him in the direction of your 'homage'

What an interesting progression! And your beard analysis is spot on! I've seen the light!

Penelope said...

Thanks Amber! I am feeling a bit better today, thank goodness! This sickness is wicked bad...my son has it, too. We need to get better for summer vacation!

Penelope said...

Hi Kaetrin! Believe it or not, I have never listened to an audiobook. Maybe this summer I'll try one. I have to admit I'm a sucker for an accent.

Penelope said...

Thanks, Tom! Only if he has a beard of course....if he's clean shaven, then forget it!

Penelope said...

Hi Casey! I can't believe how totally different he looks with and without the beardage. Weenie Vs. Hottie!

I think I may have left at least one adjective out of that quote.

Without the beard = bleh
With the beard = HOT DOG he's hoooott!!!!!!!!

Penelope said...

Well played, Mr. Stronach.

Penelope said...

Juju....Hot Dog is right! #beardforthewin

Julia Barrett said...

WTF? He looks like an entirely different man - a sexy man! He should have done it years ago!

Penelope said...

Julia....I agree. It's unbelievable. I was firmly in the "not interested in Armitage" bandwagon until I saw those beardy shots.

Ella Drake said...

*swoon*

Tasha B. said...

He looks hot in ALL those pictures as far as I'm concerned. Not to mention the Scottish accent. I mean, come on.

Penelope said...

Looks like Ella and Tasha are Armi-Lovers.

Tasha....come on. Can you honestly tell me you think he looks good in the top "homeless guy" photo. Really look at it. LOOK AT IT!

Geekamicus said...

Without a beard, I actually think he's kinda cute, but with a beard, holy cow.

You finally figured out Richard Armitage, I finally figured out beards. Thanks.

Hi Geek! Armitage provides the perfect opportunity to explain the importance of beardage. I'm glad you saw the light!

KB/KT Grant said...

Can I rub myself all over Richard's scruff?

Penelope said...

Kate.....I'm not sure he would approve, but you could always try. I guess I have to watch North and South before I make a final decision about him.

Tasha B. said...

ZOMG, you haven't seen North & South yet? I think we've identified the problem. ;)
