Wednesday Word of the Week: POGONOTROPHY

OKC Thunder basketball fans wear beards in support of James Harden.

Pogonotrophy is the art of cultivating, or growing and grooming, a mustache, beard, sideburns or other facial hair. It is a word, we promise! And a common practice. There’s even a pogonotrophy society in Nashville, and a Beard Team USA (for mustaches too.) Should we start one?
