I'm sending my husband's beard a "red alert" after seeing this. A TV news station in New Mexico found a handful of men that would allow the station to swab their beards for bacteria.

A microbiologist tested the swabs and said, "I'm usually not surprised, and I was surprised by this."

Some of the beards contained normal amounts of bacteria, but some contained fecal matter. So, there's that.

I hereby official announce my protest against my husband's hockey playoffs beard. Ewwwww.
