    I always like "how-to" articles that begin with something like:

    "Make sure that the bleeding is not too extensive."

    I have my mug and brush, but I'll tell you the truth that the absolute best shaving lubricant in the world is (drum roll here) plain old Noxema in the blue jar. (The generic equivalent store brands loose out in this one. I've tired them all.)

    In the heyday of safety razors in the U.K. no-one could afford a styptic pencil so we used pieces of old newsprint to soak up the blood. There was no pensions crisis then. Most of the males had died of blood poisoning long before pension age. In the looming pensions crisis, Prime Minister, D Cameron, is passing a law making the use of the very old cut-throat razors compulsory( a quicker death than blood poisoning from safety razors) and banning all electric ones on the grounds of global warming.

    There will be a lot of old ladies in the U.K. looking for young Thai grooms. Every action has a consequence

    Ha ha, you made me think about an old friend who I haven't seen for years. This old chap has a scar that completely encircles his neck. It is something he never talks about. Once I heard a child ask him about it. He told the child that he cut himself shaving with a straight razor. The child had no idea what he was talking about and asked again. So he told the child that the scar was from the head transplant he received a long time ago. The child went off, crying.

    I have a Durham Duplex with several boxes full of razor blades. I only break the thing out when I'm going to some kind of social function or feel like being really special, because there is a finite supply of blades for it and I'd like it to last my lifetime. The razor and the blades came from my grandfather's drugstore. Some day I will get a true straight razor to shave with, but for now I content myself with the Durham Duplex.
