Bearded Mermen Calendar Created For A Good Cause

We all know of mermaids, a legendary aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. But you may have not known of a Merb’y, which much like a mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature, with the exception that the head and upper body is that of a bearded man. The men in the calendar are members of the Newfoundland & Labrador Beard and Mustache Club and they recently did a photoshoot on eastern Canadian beaches to create a 2018 calendar that will raise money for a therapeutic recreation horse farm.  Merb’y is a combination of “mermaid” and "b'y", which is slang in Newfoundland for "buddy." Organizers were surprised in the response of models for the calendar with 80 auditioning and 30 being selected who not only posed no beaches but in pubs, pumpkin patches and fishing docks. Men of all shapes and sizes with two things in common, a fish tail and a face covered in a beard! Take a look at the 2018 Merb’y calendar online, which will entice you with some photos and allow some time for shipping.
