Meet Gary Weddie, a teacher that vowed right after 9/11 not to shave until Osama bin Laden was captured or killed. Needless to say, he and his wife were pretty happy about the news this week.
“I spent my first five minutes crying and then I couldn’t get it off fast enough,” said Gary Weddle, 50, who lives in East Wenatchee but teaches middle school science in Ephrata.
Weddle has wanted to cut his beard for years. His wife, Donita, has wanted him to cut it, too. But for Weddle a vow is a vow and so he hadn’t even trimmed it until Sunday night.
Awesome. America killed two terrible things in one shot.
