A central Kentucky man says he was forced to eat his beard after an argument about a lawn mower got out of control. Harvey Westmoreland of Lawrenceburg told WLEX-TV that two men cut off his beard, stuffed it into his mouth and forced him to eat it.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Westmoreland said two former friends got angry as they tried to negotiate a price for a lawn mower they wanted to buy from Westmoreland. He said "one thing led to another, and before I knew it, there were knives and guns and everything just went haywire."

The two men pleaded guilty to charges related to the incident and will be sentenced next week.
