    A PIF for comedians

    Well gents, this was a tough decision. There were some really good jokes and it made it a tough choice. I even had to get the wifes opinion to help me make a choice. In the end though, i have to go with @Niched_edge for the Stevie Wonder shaving joke. It was too punny. So congratulations...

    Speaking of lawyers, Bob is having a bad day. His wife divorced him in court in the morning and in the afternoon he went to bankruptcy court and had a lien placed on everything he owns. While sitting on a park bench in the evening, he notices something shiny in the bushes. Upon investigation he...

    A PIF for comedians

    And in case anyone has any doubts, this is a legitimate PIF, and not an April fool's prank. Although there may be crude jokes, this is not a cruel joke.

    A PIF for comedians

    In honor of April fools day, I am putting together a PIF. I guess PIF is a polite word for saying I'm shipping someone a bunch of junk I dont want. All kidding aside, I went through my stuff, and I have put together what would make a really nice kit for someone starting out. There is a once...

    The Houdini of aftershaves?

    So i bought a bottle of green Proraso aftershave after liking the cream. I splashed some on last night and was impressed with the scent, it was great! 10 seconds later the menthol kicked in. Woo! This is great. 20 seconds later. Poof. Disappeared. Gone. Gave it another try tonight, using a...

    Variety is the spice of life, but how much is too much?

    Well i went through my collection and I was able to get rid of a few soaps that just weren't my thing. I will probably give them away if i find someone interested in getting started. This puts me at a tub of Proraso red and white, a tube of proraso green, a puck of gentleman jon sandalwood, and...

    Is “Map Your Beard” an overrated piece of advice? (YES, it is!)

    In my personal experience shaving with the grain is the most comfortable for the first pass, and then i usually do an against the grain for a second and last pass. I have tried doing an across the grain, and i dont feel like it does much for me. I think learning what is most comfortable for...

    Bright-Eyed, Bushy-Tailed and In Need of Advice: an inherited razor and a lot of questions.

    As a new straight shaver myself, here is my best advice. Slow and focused Shave slow, strop slow, hone slow. Take your time when learning and dont get over confident. Dont be anxious or nervous, but be relaxed. Be confident yet cautious, but relax an enjoy the process. The best advice given...

    Variety is the spice of life, but how much is too much?

    I respect that. I have been tired of the modern throw away lifestyle, where we buy a bunch of cheap, disposable garbage and once its broke or not useable anymore it gets thrown away. But I have also noticed that as i acquire more quality things, i have more to care for and up keep. This in...

    Variety is the spice of life, but how much is too much?

    So, I have been really enjoying my soaps lately. It is nice to have a variety to keep things interesting. Its nice having a variety that i can match to my mood too, as weird as that sounds. I must admit though, i have purchased about 6 different soaps in the past week. I ordered red and white...

I needed a little extra to get free shipping, so i threw this two tone synthetic brush in the cart because it was on sale and my other synthetic is a not a very good brush. Well upon taking it...
