Ho ho ho

Do what you must do, developed world citizen.

There was this "gifts for him under $25" link on the front page of Yahoo this morning, so I clicked on it to see what you guys will be getting up there. One that caught my eye was a company called "The Art of Shaving" that offers a pre-shave balm at $19.95.

Believe me, as long as brand names such as "The Art of Shaving" exist the USA has no idea about poverty and hasn't experienced what 'recession' means, either. So when you're out shopping between now and the 25th and you walk past that Salvation Army bucket, drop a dollar in, yeah? Don't pat yourself on the back for doing it and don't do it out of shame or pity, either. Just do it. No big deal.
