GBS Shaving Story
The immensely prolific and scarily big-brained Gab (aka Agagooga) at Balderdash has a great anecdote I need to pass on...
George Bernard Shaw was once asked by a manufacturer of electric razors to endorse their new product - by shaving off his trademark beard. Shaw explained that, like his father before him, he had grown a beard for a very good reason:
"I was about five at the time," Shaw recalled, "and I was standing at my father's knee whilst he was shaving. I said to him, 'Daddy, why do you shave?' He looked at me in silence, for a full minute, before throwing the razor out of the window, saying, 'Why the hell do I?' He never did again."
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
You could take the same attitude to many things, like washing up, cleaning, or even having a shower...of course then you will never get laid again.
Which might explain why GBS was an only child? ~grin~
Wrong Dr Jones, shaving has nothing to do with hygiene and health issues, so no, you can't take the same attitude.
Look at your father for example - as he said, "my boy, we are pilgrims in an unholy land." According to Sav.
However, my fastidiousness and obsession with ultra-cleanliness still has not allowed ME to get laid. Again.
GBS was only child because he was a total fruit-cake and his parents ran away from home.
it's always about sex...
it is with Indy, whose mind is in the gutter...
SHE: Get your mind out of the gutter!
HE: I can't, it's attached to my body.
