Whose Strike Beard Is Better: David Letterman's or Conan O'Brien's?

Whose Strike Beard Is Better?

So the late-night hosts returned to TV on Wednesday — some with their writers, some without — for the first time since the start of the writers' strike two months ago. There were a bunch of questions: Would David Letterman and Craig Ferguson get better guests since their shows aren't being picketed? And would people be more likely to watch the shows with writers or the ones without? (So far, it's the ones without.)

But I'm wondering about something much more important today: Did Letterman or Conan O'Brien grow the better strike beard? (We ask the hard-hitting questions around here, you know.)

As much as I adore Conan and his red headed hotness (yummy!) I had to vote for Letterman my number two latenight man because he just looks better with the beard. I hope this doesn't ruing my chances of having a torrid love affair with conan (should both he and I ever become single at the same time )

Personally I prefer Daves appearance with a beard. It looks way better then I was expecting, and it does look Santa-ish! lol I love them both, but Conan honey, you always look ridiculous, and the beard does not help that at all. :rotfl:

They both look gross.. Beards require a lot of upkeep and professional trimming to look good all the time. Very sort beards were always the best I thought. Also, Letterman needs to color his, so he wont repulse as much..

Conan; Letterman looks like a he gained weight and the beard just makes he's face look round.
