Gillette take the piss- yes, their 3,4 and 5 blade wonders do give a good shave, but they get dearer and dearer.

I eventually dug out my dad's old safety razor and got a brush and soap- perfect shave!! Bladea are @ 75p for a wee set of 5- I bought a box of 20 of them at a chemists years ago, still going...........

Bah, and indeed, Humbug!

So then what do they do? Terry Henry, Tiger Woods and Roger Federer suddenly appear. If Roger had been the one doing the shaving I may have bought one, but no, its one of the others!!
Tiger never has to shave on account of all the time he spends on windy golf courses, the fluff just blows off.
Terry Henry? As my dad used to say to me when I was 13 or 14, splash your face with milk and let the cat lick it off son.
I know why they didn't get Federer to do that confident down face sweep. They could never have afforded the compensation payout of lost earnings whilst doctors pumped at least 7 units of A and E's finest into the poor sod!
Sorry, rant over.


What you'll find is they have already had a proper shave with a cut-throat blade, just slapped some foam on top and then shaved with the "wonder" blades for the camera :wink:

Talking of advertising, saw a lorry today with a very condescending slogan

It was owned by "Bargain Booze" and proclaimed
"making life richer---- for the poorer"

Presumably their cargo will make the poor so pissed that they can forget their miserable existance
