Shaving In London

Recommended Posts

Use bottled water ;)

Yeah. When I lived there in the late '80s, it was reckoned that London water had been through 8 people before it got to your tap. Grow a beard.

I'm thinking of visiting London. Any recommendations as to how to shave while I'm there? Wet or dry? Disposable or re-usable? Mail-order blades?

There are laser clinics on every corner. You'll never need to shave again.

If you're coming down by train, I recommend you should do it in Durham or York.

If you're absolutely desperate - then Grantham at the very latest.

I tried it in Peterborough once - but I didn't like it...

XYY

You must be a metrosexual then?

When I first went to London, I thought of: dirty women, dirty women, pron shops, weed, curry.

Having a shave really did not crop up.

Peterborowksi?

Is that an actual word in the dictionary like spyguy...?

Am hoping so mate - as on a triple-word square, it's a canny score in Scrabble...!

Grow a nice fat beard before it goes out of fashion again.

Hang on ! When he says 'shave' we don't know which bit he's talking about.

Are we in back, sac and crack territory here?

Speaking as a northern bloke, I always thought the back sack and crack was a strange urban myth.

Don't worry about shaving. You'll fit right in.

This.

I spent an exceptionally pleasant night in Manc's Northern Quarter singing Monty Python's lumberjack song a couple of weeks ago.

Surely if you get a shave in London the disease ridden filth will infect the cuts on your face. You'll have to chop your head off to prevent the infection spreading, or maybe do something worse.

Out in the country round my way Old Ted, the guy who normally cuts off sheeps testicles will give you the perfect shave to within an inch of your life with his trusty combine harvester. He only takes a couple of handfuls of berries as payment.

I saw a video on Facebook a while ago showing how a designer shaving place somewhere in New York operated. They stuck wax up people's nostrils and used it to pull out all the hair.

What for? :blink:
