Ind. man, 72, shaves shaggy eyebrows for charity 印地安納州72歲男子為慈善剃掉濃眉


A 72-year-old man with eyebrows so long he brushed them each morning raised $1,600 for charity from people who paid to take turns trimming his out-of-control brows.


Some of the wiry hairs shorn from Si Burgher’s shaggy eyebrows measured more than three inches long because the former jeweler’s brows had never been trimmed.


Burgher’s eyebrows were so long he used to brush them before leaving the house. But he agreed to have the overgrown brows tamed last week by members of the Bloomfield Rotary Club to raise money for a polio eradication campaign.


Burgher barely winced as his wife, Amy, got the first whack at the overgrown hairs.


"I don’t care if they ever grow back," he told The Herald-Times of Bloomington. "My wife says I look 20 years younger."


Burgher’s wife said she likes his new look. "Beneath the eyebrows is a really handsome man," she said. "He looks like a normal person."
