Advice from Ken & Dana: To Beard Or Not To Beard?

On KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #178: Advise And Dissent Dana reads a letter from Aaron Cooper and mentions the pictures in the email. You can see them below:

Dear Snydecast,
I recently went on vacation and decided to forego shaving completely while away. Upon my return, my wife remarked on how much she liked the new growth, so for the past couple months I've been letting my beard grow out. I am still undecided as to whether I like the new look or not. So after hearing your call to action during the latest episode of the Snydecast (about damn time, by the way) I figured who better to advise me on this matter than the masters of facial hair themselves, Ken Plume and Dana Snyder. I have attached a few photos to aid in your decision-making process.
Thank you in advance.
Your faithful listener (even through the darkest hours),
Aaron Cooper

Here's a picture of me, bearded:
 And, for comparison's sake, here's a picture of me sans-beard:
And for further comparison, here's a picture of me sans facial hair period, back when I was a junior in high school (don't be jealous):
 And lastly, and for absolutely no reason whatsoever, here's a picture of me having sex with Yoko Ono:

PS: On a completely unrelated note, I'm curious to hear Dana's impressions of his visit to the Garden of Eden in Lucas, KS. It was brought up in Snydecast 173, but the conversation was quickly derailed into a lengthy discussion of Casa Bonita. I live less than an hour from Lucas and have visited the Garden of Eden myself. I'd love to hear Dana's thoughts.
Thanks again!-AC

NOTE: Below is another email I got from Aaron Cooper that I hadn't got a chance to post due to the influx of new Snydecasts (never thought I'd write that phrase again!)

So as I was listening (again) to the boys discussing Julia Child's kitchen on today's NEW Snydecast, I thought of the perfect way to repurpose Dana's Oscar-worthy "Terror Phone Charley Horse" face. ;)

Damn, that is one ugly bastard.

Yes, Yoko is an ugly bastard.
