What would you do with Jimmy’s beard?

“As the owner you may have the beard shaved by an expert team of taxidermists, art restorers and forensic scientists. Painstakingly reconstructed and mounted within a framed glass case. Or, you may choose to have it remain on the host, and use it (within limits) as you see fit.”
