Handlebar Club rep: "Beards are hideous."
Michael "Atters" Attree, who emceed the World Beard and Moustache Championships held in England in 2007, has declared beards hideous, according to CNN. See, http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/europe/05/10/norway.beard.moustache.championship/ Atters is a member of London's anti-beard Handlebar Club, host of the WBMC 2007.
Similar to other anti-beard organizations such as the New York Yankees, the United States Army, and Disneyland, the Handlebar Club specifically prohibits its members from having beards, as do other organizations involved in this weekend's WBMC in Trondheim, Norway.
