J: Well, it’s sure going to look weird – like strapping half a bra to my face.
J: I’ll have you know that the Shave Slave is made of ultra light, Swedish alloys and space age, suedish leather. Here let me help you hook it on.
J: Zo what a’e theze padz on my neck, cheekz and fo’ehead?
J: They’re electro stimulation pads. The pulses trigger in turn the same muscle groups that a man uses when stretching the skin of his chin, neck, cheeks and lips to get a close shave. I’ll turn it on and you can watch the auto-grimacing in the mirror.
J: Ha, ha, funny fazez! Hey, why do I feel the zkin being zucked outwa’dz at diffe’ent plazez, too?
J: Oh that’s the razor suction cup. It’s an idea I got from a massage technique I saw at a spa. The cup moves over the bearded area stopping to suck up and extend the skin even more, so the concave razor inside can cut the whiskers really close.
J: Yez, it zeemz to be wo’king.
J: So, besides giving an ultra clean shave, the Electro-etcetera Shave Slave frees your hands to drive or use the phone at the same time.
J: T’uely a zupe’b and p’actical appa’atuz!

       I'd hate to be there when this thing malfunctions. Unless it just caused it to stop working without any sort of horrible pain. Then I guess I wouldn't really care if I was there or not.

       Whazzat? Oh, a transcutaneous electro-nerve stimulator unit, but don't forget the additional application of vacuum massage technology.

       Croissant for the words suedish and Swedish used in the same sentence.
