Yes, I just ripped off the Samson legend for this one, and very dodgily solved the problem with a ridiculously simple concoction.
This episode came from the fact that the person on whom Beardo is based is always teased mercilessly when he shaves his beard off. I thought it would be funny to have the character beardless and similarly laughed at.
It was while drawing this episode that I cursed myself for basing the comic on a rock band, because I hate drawing the instruments! Especially those fucking guitars...!
