This Thanksgiving - somewhere between your in-laws bickering and your uncle getting hammered and making offensive comments - we suggest you pull out this week’s edition of Best of the Web for some worry-free, facial hair-filled entertainment.

As we wrap up Movember and No Shave November, we’re offering a sweet sendoff with 5 of the best video game beards, plus the best beards in the NFL. And looking ahead to Christmas, we’re tipping you off to a new sparkly facial hair trend as well as an awesome bro-centric, R-rated Christmas movie directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies).

And hey, if all else fails to make your family gathering tolerable, you can always play Adele.

Happy Thanksgivng!
