Ephrata, Washington– Gary Weddle, a 50-year-old middle school teacher who vowed in 2001 not to shave until Osama Bin Laden was either caught or killed, finally got rid of his Bin Laden-like beard.

“When the twin towers came down, I was horrified and I was glued to that television set for several days,” Weddle said during an interview with KOMO News in June of 2003. “And (I) realized that not only was I not taking showers, I wasn’t shaving.”

Weddle says that’s when he decided not to shave until Osama bin Laden was captured or killed because he wanted those around him to remember the terrorist attack.
