He put the Beefaroni in his hand cart and suddenly said, “Do you have any idea how hard it is to shave with one eye?” Which was weird because we were still in the Beefaroni aisle.
“No, I don’t. I assume it would be difficult. How do you do it?”
“Slowly, to be sure,” he said. “But I also use this badass shit that you should try out. I helped you out with the Mini Ravioli, let me help you with this.”
I didn’t have anywhere to be, so I followed him to another aisle. Plus, it felt cool to be associated with a guy wearing an eye-patch in public.

Men have been at a bit of a disadvantage since we started grooming our body hair. We just don’t know what we’re doing when it comes to removing hair below the neck. Luckily, the guys at Shave magazine have our backs. They’ve put together 10 methods for removing that unwanted body hair.
Here’s a quick preview:
Using tweezers is ideal for getting rid of the odd stray hair anywhere on the body or for tidying up certain areas where there is not much body hair in the first place. However, tweezing can be painful, and like most forms of hair removal, ingrown hairs are a possibility. Additionally, because tweezing requires you to remove one hair at a time, it is not a worthwhile form of hair removal for those wishing to get rid of a large area of hair. Before tweezing, it is worth having a hot shower or splashing warm water over the desired area in order to open the pores of the skin and thus facilitate hair removal and reduce pain. When tweezing a hair out, pull gently in the direction of hair growth so as to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs or skin irritation.
Threading is actually one of the oldest methods of body hair removal and involves rolling twisted threads over hairlines to remove unwanted hair. It is a difficult technique that takes practitioners many months to perfect, so you likely won’t be doing this alone or at home. It is inexpensive, fast and slightly uncomfortable but requires a very skilled practitioner. Unfortunately, threading only works on flat surfaces and removes hair in straight lines, making it more suitable for the face and other small regions and unsuitable for larger or curved regions.

There’s just something weird about being completely unshaven in the summertime. On your face I mean, Wisenheimer. So, how about “The Chinstrap”? It says, “Hey I’m here, let’s party ladies- Who wants a moustache burn??”
Because you don’t want anything too heavy either, like a “Garibaldi” or “Chin Curtain”. My friend Nick Wegman can grow one of these in 10 minutes. I, however, couldn’t grow one in my entire life span. And I am forever jealous.
A variation on “The Chinstrap” is the “Rap Video Standard”, popularized by the likes of R&B artist Jon B and “K-Fed” where the “Chinstrap” actually connects to the moustache and forms a goatee.
