Wondering While Shaving

O’Brien: Wondering, wondering, wondering . . . why does Barbasol shaving cream cost so much less than other leading brands? I mean, I buy the stuff, and I like to think that I’m getting a bargain, but when I’m at the drug store and Barbasol costs half as much, per unit, as Gillette Foamy or some other brand, it makes me wonder whether I’m doing something awful by using this cut-price product. Is it burning the skin? Altering the genome? Causing sterility? Contributing to the growth of manboobs? Is it made from monkey sperm? Spider Eggs? Can you use it with Pop Rocks? Did Mikey’s head explode after he shaved with it? Wondering, wondering, wondering.

Karellen: Goddammit, O’Brien! Quit daydreaming back there! You just nicked me, right above my kidney! Pay attention, man!

O’Brien: Sorry, Karellen. There was a big tuft right there, hiding a mole. Let me lay on a bit more lather. Wondering, wondering, wondering . . .
