Shaving is a cruel joke played on men, and here's why

It is designed to make us look and feel silly.

SHAVING IS A cruel but hilarious joke, of which men are the victims.*

Here are all the reasons why. Pity us poor men.

*Yes, most women shave bits of themselves too. But it’s just not as ridiculous, is it? Is it?

3. But if you let it slide, you look like a fourteen-year-old boy with an attitude problem.

5. Oh, you already have spots for some reason? GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.

6. Also, how many other grooming tasks force you to make this face?
