The Best a Man Can Get? Really?

April 23rd, 2014 - 12:30 pm

TOO MUCH

No joke — what you see above is the latest and goofiest razor from Gillette:

Procter & Gamble Co. is preparing to roll out its latest weapon in the fight for men’s faces—a razor featuring a swiveling ball-hinge that allows the blade to pivot and comes with a high-end price, according to marketing documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Dubbed the ProGlide FlexBall, according to the documents, the new device is aimed at winning sales in a crucial and profitable business that has come under pressure as styles have favored facial hair and men have shifted at the margins to cheaper discount options.

I reserve the right to point and laugh at anyone dragging a FlexBall across his face.

If you want a good shave, just buy an old-fashioned safety razor, a brush, and some soap. You can buy a year’s worth of safety razor blades for the price of just one of those newfangled doohickeys — and you’ll get a better shave, too.

Why do men still shave?

Because their wives make them.

Heh. My wife complains when I shave. And she once reacted with great horror when she discovered that I'd gotten a particularly short haircut.

Turns out it was my hair (including on my face) and my voice (I once left her a phone message while recovering from a cold; when I'm hoarse I sound like a sex god, instead of the sex imp I usually sound like) were the traits that won me her heart.

At least they are out of their "Screw it, let's add more blades!" phase.
