The oil companies, refiners and oil producing countries have been ripping us off for years. Yes, I know oil is down for now, but get real. And guess who's taken a page from their playbook? The companies that making shaving razors.

Have you seen the prices of replacement razor blades? Male or female, doesn't matter. They are stupid expensive. While Kathy was looking for makeup stuff Saturday, I wandered over to the shaving department. $25 dollars for a ten pack of new blades. What? First of all, you don't need four blades to get a good shave, but even the the two blade ones, if you can even find them, are that price.

Have you seen the shave club TV commercials? I believe anyone buy any shave products gets a shot to the...er, gut, no matter how they buy it.
