This reminded me of a joke from "The Late Show" (from the Australian ABC in 1992-1993, not the David Letterman one) where they had on with 16 blades and explained the job of each one. "no.6 acts as a postman, distracting the hair so that nos. 7-9 can coax the hair into coming out of hiding. nos. 10-15 handle the paper work, and no.16... well, it`s just along for the ride. The Gillette 3000, also the Lady Gillette 3000, which is exactly the same but with a much girlier voiceover"

WTF? At the beginning of that MadTV sketch Nicole Sullivan was saying the lines too by accident then realized it at 24 seconds.

Titanium Schick razor rocked! It`s not the number of blades but, the metal compound and manufacturing technique that matters. I guess it was not disposable enough.

lol, that was funny. but seriously, how many friggin` blades are they going to put on the razors. I was perfectly cool with the mach 3 razor.
The one that drives me mad are the ones that take a battery and vibrate. If you want an electric razor then buy one, these new Fusion Mach 3 Excel MP3 razors are getting to be gimmicky.
And why the hell does it cost almost $20 bucks for (4) replacement razors? Brutal. End rant.

"I don`t know if any of you remember, but Gilette did a commercial when Shick released their four-blade razor, the Quattro. The commercial featured a 20-bladed razor. The thing was fricking huge, and the guy just looked at it like "WTF?" Then it said that more razors doesn`t mean a better shave. It then plugged Mach 3 razors."

That was Phillips, and the razor had "15 extra large blades". Search "Quintippio" on YouTube ;)

I, too, use the Fusion. Blades all over that thing, even a single blade on its own, for getting the sniggly bits under your nose and around your lips. I love it. They could slap another six or seven blades on there, and I`d love it even more. Enough blades where all I need to so is place it against my face, and shift it down 1/4 inch, and I`m done. *Now* we`re talking shaving luxury!

Now there`s the Gilette Fusion, with (count them) FIVE BLADES!!!! AND AN EXTRA BLADE ON THE BACK!!! AND IT VIBRATES!!!

Kinda sad really. I use Shick`s 3-razor one. It does an acceptable job at a good price. Gilette is overpriced no matter which blades you buy.

1-2 blade razors dont do squat. the three and four are much better but going to five maybe going overboard.

as far as i know,razors with many blades can damage the skin, so its best to shave with 1-2 blade razors...
