About

Beard Shaving Comic Parodies are photographic recreations of a webcomic in which a bearded man shaves his face and surprises himself upon noticing his own youthful appearance.

Origin

On October 29th, 2013, Redditor Kornichon submitted a comic of a man shaving in a sink who uncovers a baby face underneath his facial hair to the /r/funny[1] subreddit. Prior to being archived, the post gained over 40,300 upvotes and 1,500 comments.



Precursor

On May 13th, 2013, Redditor Pritchardzz posted a comic titled “Shaving,” which featured an illustration of a bearded man with an eye patch labelled “Before” next to a drawing of a wide-eyed young man labelled “After” (shown below). The post garnered upwards of 12,700 upvotes and 180 comments on /r/funny[4] before it was archived.



Spread

On November 6th, 2013, a parody of Redditor Kornichon’s comic featuring photographs of a man shaving his beard with a safety razor was uploaded to FunnyJunk,[5] where it garnered upwards of 54,000 views and 1,000 upvotes in the next six months (shown below).



On the following day, Redditor matt_777 submitted a series of photographs of his friend performing the poses from the same comic, in which he is shown flipping a middle finger while displaying his beard fully intact in the final panel (shown below). Before it was archived, the post received more than 25,400 upvotes and 800 comments on /r/funny.[3]



On April 3rd, 2014, Redditor thesleeb posted several photographs of his friend mimicking the beard-shaving comic to /r/funny[2] (shown below). In two months, the post gathered upwards of 17,100 upvotes and 775 comments.
