2. I had a beard for years for the same reason...
...but one day, I noticed it had gone from red to white...skipped the distinguished grey completely...since I wasn't into the Santa Claus look, I shaved...and I hate it every morning.

3. Use a Gillete Sensor...
It's the best. I dont like the Mach3 and Quattro, more blades doenst me a better or closer shave. Change your blades often, and you can shave alternate days to let your skin have some rest. Never liked the electric razors myself. But yes shaving is a pain in the Azz!!

7. Two whole legs,
Don't forget the ankles (ouch) and the backs of the knees (ouch) and the shin (ouch) and then let's move on to the underarms (ouch) not to mention any girly parts which shall remain nameless as well as hairless, and then put on antiperspirant (ouch) and perfume (ouch).

No wonder womenfolk are anemic, and pissed off.

But, I have to admit, I can skip it for a day or two and generally my sloth is not on display to the world. So, here's to all the face shavers! Time for revolution for y'all, you are oppressed!

15. Guys can shave more than face too
I have shaved "male" areas. It makes it nice and tidy if you are going to be intimate with someone. Plus shaving seems to make objects appear larger.

9. Electric shaver?
A man doesn't feel like a man should unless his face is baby butt smooth. And smells good. Don't forget that part.

16. I can't use one...
It makes my face turn bright red for hours because of my acne creams.

22. They have this lubricant stuff you can put on your face...
To cut down on that...You just have to talk to someone. They have products to cut down on that. And I hear that new Quantro razor is pretty good.

14. Try the wonderful Epilady!
Just kidding. I would not inflict pain like that on a human I respect.

Those of you not old enough to remember, it was this wondrous device whereby spinning coils of wire could rip out your body hair by the roots. Even the infomercial said it would be less painful the more you used it. Millions were sold. Millions were returned with many complaints and many refunds.

Maybe it could be used in Guantanamo. The UN would surely intervene, then.

They forgot to tell us it was used mostly on PLO prisoners by the IDF....

My ex had one of those things. she used it 3 weeks and it never "hurt less"...

13. If I shave regularly,
My skin gets really oily and acne eventually appears so I usually have a 5:00 shadow (but rarely a full beard - it's too itchy.)

I got one of those Heartz flea and tic collars! The ARMY burnt me out on razors of any sort!
