Dude, Where’s My Beard?

This is just plain funny…

JEDDAH, no rx 20 August 2006 â?? Relatives of an 80-year-old granddad, there who is in intensive care at a hospital in Jeddah, were shocked to find the old-manâ??s long beard had been shaved off by the hospital barber, the Al-Madinah newspaper reported yesterday.

The Saudi son of the man said his father is suffering from a serious illness and was in the intensive care unit at the hospital when his beard was shaved off. The man said that he came to visit his father and was shocked to see that the hospital barber had given the 80-year-old â??the Gillette look.â?

The hospital issued a written apology to the family and said that the barber misunderstood instructions to trim the beard. The son, who has threatened to sue the hospital, said, â??My father has never shaved his beard since he was born. This is so tragic, I canâ??t believe they could be so careless.â? [source]
