Slightly shaving related but really not.

Did anyone else ever notice that Mr. Gillette (or their mascot)

Maybe it was foreshadowing how present day Gillette has a monopoly over the shaving industry, similar to how Stalin controlled whatever his countrymen did.
 
Here's the full text of World Corporation by King Gillette.

Gillette may have had so......t ideals, but he was definitely a capitalist. But there's nothing wrong with being a so......t, either...

Edit: What? We can"t type so......t at B&B? That makes no sense... now I know it's Social*st above.
I used to think that the political arguments were the reason the "S" word was censored, but it's really because it has the word "c i a l i s" in the middle of it. It was to combat the spam B&B was getting.

There was me thinking it was lefties being censured (anyone fancy a BBQ).

There is normally a reasonable explanation for the actions of the B&B mods.

That is a good observation buster, but given the quality of the picture of Gillette it isn't surprising that he looks like anybody with a mustache.

I think the imagery on that package can make him look like a lot of famous people with moustaches. I almost thought you were going to say Saddam :lol:.
 
King Gillette bore a striking resemblance to another famous figure ...

Sometime in the late 1920s, Gillette was known as a frequent guest of Nellie Coffman, proprietor of the Desert Inn in Palm Springs, California. He was often seen wandering about the grounds and lobby in a tattered old bathrobe. When Coffman was asked why she allowed such a low life to hang out at her establishment, she responded, "Why that is King C. Gillette. He has practically kept this place in the black the last few years."

This is the same hotel that hosted Howard Hughes, during the last few years of his decline and retreat from public life.

While King Gillette kept the Desert Inn in business, Hughes eventually bought the place so that he could live as he pleased without upsetting the hotel management.
