How bad is your addiction? Who is the king?


Stjynnkii membörd dummpsjterd
We're all kinda nuts with this hobby, wouldn't you say? This got me to wondering, who has the worst case? Who wears the crown? All nominations are welcome, and feel free to nominate yourself.

I would assume that a bit more is involved than just owning scads (no pun intended) of razors, a/s's, creams, and colognes. No, there must be some deeper manifestation of this sickness that occasionally rears its ugly head.

So, what is it? Do you rob the kiddypoos piggy bank for your fix? Have you come in late for work due to excessive faceturbation? Does your wife dance for you in a guenron bikini? (pictures available on request)

Before I start confessing my own sins, I'd like to know how high the bar is.:cool:

I see it didn't take long for Ron's name to pop up. Imagine that.

I guess Austin gets the first pic of my wife in a guenron bikini.:w00t:
Just wait 'til the B&B MasterCard comes out...then we can track our addiction! :biggrin: We'll all be singing, "I owe my soul to the company store!" :eek:
With The Grain said:
scared everyone off from answering, you should have made the title something where the guys with the most stuff would step right up to compare, ie "post a picture of your inventory" or "list all your creams and soaps" and then at the end you could have pronounced your kings of addiction :lol:

Been there - Done that -Here it is again:

I also had around 200 straight razors that I sold off last year through ebay and just kept a few. I still have few razor hones left.

That's it!........I think......for now
I've given up the addiction. No more purchases. I'm done. Through. Finished. I cut up my credit card!

Ha Ha. Now that's funny. :lol:

From the looks of things if you buy one more razor or tub of cream you may be forced to build a guest house out back to use as a dedicated shave den.

This may be the only way to stop me...........


I don't have that many razors though.
