What's with this Duck Commander beard stuff? If it's all about beards, explain Islam.

I dont get it either but I dont watch any tv unless its a movie. Todays shows are so stupid I dont see how anyone with 1/3 of a brain can stand to watch them. I sound like my grandpa but im only 33. It seems like tv represents a big part of society today and thats scary. All reality shows make me puke

Don't know what to tell you Qwerty. I have a full beard, is white. One little girl asked me about xmas time. Why is there no hair on your head? I told her my last trip down I lost my scarf. My hair got so cold it all broke off and just never came back. She was in awe. As far as the Duck family, they do have a lot of hair, but I have seen dreadlocks much larger and can't imagine having a mess like that attached to me. Of course, just another personal opinion. Thing I like about a full beard is that with an open faced helmet the rain doesn't sting so bad and I haven't been stung by a bee that has hit my cheek while riding.

that show has to be mostly poor acting,because the company couldn't succed or even manufacture that many duxck calls to make a profit with that bunch of stupid ,lazy,dumbass,rednecks. they are alyways goofing off.they must have a plant somewhere producing calls with real workers off camera. i can't stand these so called reality shows.they are as far from reality as anything can get.

Tinnitus makes me do it because I can't stand the buzzing in my ears unless I produce some sort of background noise. I have hundreds of channels beamed in from a satellite but only ever have news on the TV. Flipping around in the evening supports my belief that we are heading to hell in a hand basket!

I do sport a full beard in the winter but keep it very short, brakes up the monotony of my face. I could never stand the rats nest the duck dudes wear. At least that show is tons better than 99% of the other crap they call entertainment TV.

Actually, the family are multi-millionaire even before the show came on the air. In 2012, the company earned 40 million dollars. Here is a brief bio from Wikipedia "Duck Commander is both the brand of a best-selling duck call and the name of the company in West Monroe, Louisiana, United States, that makes it and other duck-hunting merchandise,[SUP][1][/SUP] as well as deer-hunting merchandise under the Buck Commander brand.
Phil Robertson, a star football quarterback at Louisiana Tech University, founded the company rather than play professional football in the NFL.[SUP][2][/SUP] He began his business in a dilapidated shed, where he spent 25 years making duck calls from Louisiana cedar trees.[SUP][3][/SUP]
Robertson's third son, Willie Robertson, is the chief executive officer and expanded the family business into a multi-million dollar enterprise."

I can't stand reality show either but since I work in finance, I'm in awe how they grew this company into a multi-million dollar operation on a simple duck call. Why can't I come up with an invention like that?

thanks for the info purple,that explains a lot ,but the show itself sort of lets people believe these guys do the manufacturing themselves.

There is one reality show that's outstanding. "Flying wild Alaska". Not to be confused with any of the other "Alaska" shows. If someone described it to me I would have said "ok, first eposode might be good but the rest will just be a repeat of the first. No so. I loved that show (no longer on but can be found on Netflix).
