#9 "We met back in 1998 when we were both 8 years old. Unfortunately though, the beards didn't come until a bit later when we were 23," they said when asked about their origin story.

#10 "Even though we both have our days of beard frustrations, neither of us have come remotely close to shaving off our beards. We fancy them quite a lot and we both agree shaving it off would be like losing a limb."
