J: Well, its sure going to look weird like strapping half a bra to my face.
J: Ill 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 ae theze padz on my neck, cheekz and foehead?
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. Ill 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 outwadz at diffeent plazez, too?
J: Oh thats the razor suction cup. Its 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 woking.
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: Tuely a zupeb and pactical appaatuz!

||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.
