One of the things Jay Carney did on his holiday vacation: Grow a beard.

President Obama's spokesman sported the new look at the start of his news briefing Monday, drawing "oohs" and "aaahs" from reporters who hadn't seen him in a while.

"What happened?" one reporter inquired to laughter.

Said Carney: "My wife says she likes it - so there."

And, yes, "Jay's Beard" now has its own Twitter account, with the handle @PressSecBeard.

That inspired a tweet from White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer: "Will the @PressSecBeard account outlive @PressSec 's actual beard?"
