What is a neckbeard?
The Google dictionary says a neckbeard is “a growth of hair on a man’s neck, especially when regarded as indicative of poor grooming.”
Know Your Meme on the other hand describes a neckbeard as “Neckbeard is a pejorative term referring to unattractive, overweight and misogynistic Internet users who wear a style of facial hair in which a majority of the growth is present on the chin and neck. Neckbeards are commonly associated with hipster stereotypes and Internet addicts who frequent websites like 4chan and Reddit.”
Lastly, Encyclopaedia Dramatica describes a neckbeard as “A Neckbeard (also known as a neard, a portmanteau, or the bloatee) is the strange under-the-chin hair growth only seen on fatties, drug addicts with a messianic complex and UNIX programmers. It is derived from the “Abe Lincoln” (not to be confused with the sex move as the neckbearded have no relation to sex). The purpose of this beard is to delineate the neck from the chin when the two have merged due to obesity, forming a bullfrog neck. Wearers hope it will make them look like a badass from Hackers or The Matrix, yet it merely reminds observers of fucking chin lack.”
A neckbeard is to beards as the comb-over is to hair. It is never, ever cool.
