Man trims 3 inch eyebrows for charity

A 72-year-old southwestern Indiana man with eyebrows so long he brushed them each morning has raised $1,600 for charity from people who paid to trim them.

Some of the wiry hairs shorn from Si Burgher's shaggy eyebrows measured more than three inches long when they were finally trimmed last week by members of the Bloomfield Rotary Club.

The former jeweler agreed to have the brows trimmed to raise money for a polio eradication campaign.

Burgher barely winced as his wife, Amy, got the first whack at the overgrown hairs.

"I don't care if they ever grow back," he told The Herald-Times of Bloomington. "My wife says I look 20 years younger."
