THIS MAN CAN HOLD OBJECTS WITH HIS BEARD (PHOTOS)

Playing with fire: Mr Thiot proves just how confident in he is in the strength of his beard when he manages to cradle flaming matchsticks in its hairy nest


A man with a penchant for keeping objects in his beard has translated his talent into a hilarious picture series with the help of his photographer wife.
Los Angeles-based art director Pierce Thiot, 27, discovered his gift when his mother asked him to participate in a family talent show over the holidays, prompting him to stick a bunch of pencils in his beard 'to get some laughs'.



When his 'party trick' proved to be a success, he and his wife Stacy, 28, decided to start a blog called Will It Beard to see just how many different items his facial hair could hold.
