RAZORBLOGGING REDUX: Last year's razorblogging was popular enough that when I passed the rather absurd-looking Gillette "Fusion" 5-blade razor -- on sale at Walgreen's for $5.99 -- I thought "why not?"

I bought one, and shaved with it with the expectation that five blades would be just plain silly. Shockingly, however, it actually does shave very well. The Insta-Wife's verdict upon feeling my cheeks was that they were noticeably smoother than usual.

What's next? Will my grandsons be shaving with 12-blade razors?

UPDATE: Reader Dan Jacquemin notes that this is another case of life imitating The Onion. Heh.
