Ahem. :tsk:

We both know the Breteros are (too) busy talking about Bret on another message board.

Having seen his pants I doubt that description's wrong.

Perhaps you should give it a bit more thought. As a long-standing Bretaholic, I would prefer to not see these discussions here. As a mod, I'd also remind you to be polite and respect the threads. You have a whole section devoted to Jemaine, please try to keep the discussion there. Also, ease up a bit on the happy trail discussion. It's getting a bit unwieldy. :topic:

As for the topic at hand, I'm preferring the cleaner-shaved look that he used to sport a bit more these days, perhaps because I haven't seen it as much recently. The muttonchops will always remain awesome, though.

Indy, when you say cleaner-shaved look, do you mean scruffy? :drool:
I just love the many changes Bret's face goes through, from totally clean to full beard to mutton chops, to everything in between! :P

I'm not crazy about the mutton chops but they are fun
I prefer a Bret-with-stubble-and-not-too-long-hair myself. The way he looks at the Emmys.
mmmmmmmm

Nope, I guess I should just say clean-shaved. I think my favorite look is the one at the head of the forums *points up*, where he's clean-shaven, but still got a bit of funky sideburns going on. That, or full-on beard. One-day stubble is ok, but I'm tiring of the short stubble beard.

Nix, if you spend more time here perhaps you could inspire Breteros to be more vocal. Then again I understand perfectly why you don't.

Me too. Mutton chops are fun, but should really be reserved for the older army type.

eeeek
when you first click on the link you get a huge view of the top of his shiny head :shock:

You have excellent taste H... regarding Bret's hair status
By the way, I hear that you might be experiencing a surge in your admiration for Bret?
That would make perfect sense as his features are more classically handsome than Jemaine's (no offence) :blush: :love:

I take it back!!!! Jemaine has more of the mmmmmmmmmmm factor. Bret has the cuteness thing (he does have it going on after all).

:shock:
How can people cope with being bi-conchordian?
Can you go round loving all the conchords? Will you get anything done?
I think you should consider this carefully before you make a decision.

Edit: I see you have
Obviously a temporary flip

Oh thank goodness H returned to her senses. But I see nothing wrong with being bi-conchordian.

Bret's features are more classically handsome but that doesn't necesarily equal special or memorable. You gotta admit, Jem's looks are more ahem interesting.

Disclaimer: Ya'll know I love Bret, he's the cutest of the cute and when I met him I nearly swooned from the charm that flowed off that little pixie like lava. Which is why I feel I can gently tease about him not being quite as voraciously foxy or yummalicious as the J-Dawg - no offense ever meant to the supreme awesomness of The Bretster.

So are there more of one than the other when it comes to Breteros and Jemainiacs?

hmmm, I have no idea. As we have all noticed those Jemainiacs are very vocal, whereas we Bretaholics are more subtle. :yawinkle:

Maybe we need to do a roll call I'll start that on the Bret Banter thread now actually....

It's a toss up. In a recent article, one of the guys, I think Bret, said women seem to prefer Jemaine 2:1. But in an Asian poll Bret was the clear winner. Also on some random site I stumbled upon there was a poll and Bret was way out in front. On one hand you'd think he'd be more popular (that refined bone structure and all) yet when online it seems Jemainiacs aren't only more vocal but more populous so who can really say? I like that they both give us something very different lookswise and talentwise so there's something for everyone.
