30 Days Hath Novembeard – Day 12

We promised more white beards, and man are we going to deliver. Perhaps the nerdiest old man beard on this list also goes to the shittiest dad, Henry Jones Sr.

I know, I know. It’s hard to be a single dad and care about your kid while spending your evenings researching possible resting places for the Holy Grail. Especially when that kid is constantly being brought home by the local police for his obsession with bringing archeological finds to the local museums. Henry Jones is a class act though. You can tell by the beard, perfectly trimmed and immaculate with a little salt and pepper. No doubt he’s the only person on our Novembeard list who both quotes Charlemagne and was shot by a Nazi. (Bonus Points for being Eskimo Brothers with his son Also, if it’s father and son does that change the terminology?).

Well thanks to his dad’s handy dandy grail notebook, Indy was able to save his life. He somehow forgot to include the chapter which tells us that in latin Jehovah is spelled with an “I”, but whatever.

Sean Connery also portrayed proverbial bad ass, James Bond. He may have been smooth as hell but Bond never had any whiskers so he gets knocked down a peg. Henry James Sr. is a crotchety old man whose only defense in the grip of danger is the ink from a pen.
