An amputee (noun) is a style of beard wherein the man shaves off the hair on his chin, but leaves most or all of the rest of his facial hair, i.e. it is the negative image of a goatee.
“Facial Hair Expositor,” a monthly magazine, honoured the amputee with its coveted “The Most Ridiculous Beard Style” award every month for almost five and a half years straight. The only exception was in the January, 2015 edition, when the publication instead gave its “Silliest Beard Style” award to the amputee. The magazine’s rules say that each beard style can be assigned only one award each month.
In April of 2015, Facial Hair Expositor announced that the amputee would no longer be eligible for either award, but only because the publication was going out of business.
