NEWS: Seneca Crane's beard makes North America's Favorite Facial Hair Icon list at #3

Here's some interesting news! Seneca Crane's beard has landed a spot (#3) on North America's Favorite Facial Hair Icon list, according to I mean, who doesn't love Seneca's beard? :)

LOS ANGELES (Nov. 20, 2012) – Because the search for family history often yields bewhiskered ancestors,, an international leader in online family history, conducted a survey to determine North America’s hairy preferences and favorite facial hair icon

The online survey found that fake facial hair is preferred, as the top three facial hair icons are known to have imitation facial hair: 
Comedian Groucho Marx, known for his fake mustache
The Lorax, the beloved mustachioed hero from the classic Dr. Seuss book
Seneca Crane, gamekeeper from the recent Hunger Games movie, played by Wes Bently and whose real beard took two hours to create every day.
Rounding out the top ten facial hair icons are: 
Filmmaker and actor John Waters, known for his pencil-thin mustache
Ambrose Burnside, a Union Army general in the American Civil War whose facial hair style coined the word sideburns
Artist Salvador Dali whose mustache is as surreal as his art
Funnyman Zach Galifianakis
Fictional anchorman Tom Tucker from Family Guy
Brian “Fear the Beard” Wilson, closing pitcher for San Francisco Giants
Clark Gable, the famed American actor. 
The survey also examined facial hair preferences. Overwhelmingly respondents most enjoy the mustache, which took 72.8 percent of the vote, followed by the beard (14.6%), sideburns (6.8%) and a dashing combination of them all (5.8%). More than 70 percent of respondents also asserted that facial hair is as respected today as throughout history. 
Facial hair has moved in and out of fashion over the years and the historical record is full of shaggy characters,” said D. Joshua Taylor,’s lead genealogist. “When doing our own family history research, taking a break from our pedigrees to discover details about everything from profession to facial hair brings color to our family trees and brings us closer to our ancestors.”
