    Wow, you’re right, I haven’t seen her smile that widely in previous pictures.

    This is because the camel is actually straight.

    I don’t think I have ever seen a camel smile quite like that either.

    Hey Penney …

    There once was a hump in “Sahara”
    who liked to wear heavy mascara
    He pumped up his chest
    with a subdermal vest
    But alas he just couldn’t bear ya

    The Manolo he got a link from the Instapundit! The Manolo he has hit the big time, indeed!

    The Dan he wonders why the straight girl posing as a girlfriend to the gay man, she is called the “beard.”

    The beard, like the beautiful woman on the arm, it is the supposed proof of “masculinity”.

    “Beard” has also applied (see Lawrence Sanders novels) to a situation where a married man with a lover has another man accompany the happy pair to say a restaurant or a play, so they can appear together in public without being detected–ostensibly she is dating or is “with” the other man; the other man is the ‘beard.’ In general I think it applies to anyone who allows somebody to pose as other than what they are.

    And here I thought we were going to see camel toe.

    Interesting. I always thought the term “beard” referenced a disguise. Like the gay man keeps a beautiful woman on his arm to disguise his homosexuality. In other words, she masks his true identity like a fake beard and mustache would.

    P. Cruz is fantastic. And I’m sure her new friend can go a lot longer without water than her previous beau.

    Actually, I think that’s a baby camel.

    A beard is the fellow that accompanies a friend’s lady/man (there are variations, of course) whilst he is out of town on business.

    The beard is a manly chap, with Honor solid as gold who accompanies his friends’ lady around town and keeps a truly platonic relationship — s/He is there to keep an eye on him/her for the friend.

    Is only my opinion, is all.
