Hey, just a reminder that any holiday gifts purchased through my Amazon Affiliate links (US, UK, Canada) would, in theory, throw a little money my way without costing you a dime extra! Just Sayin'.
Why is this not already commonplace? Brilliant.
Every panel was pure gold! I'm due for a "dermal overhaul and nail resurfacing". It's actually a great idea.
The last bubble would make more sense grammatically if it said "...ask out a woman while she's looking at...."
Maybe it's just me, though.
I don't often laugh out loud reading webcomics, but this was a cracker.
But seriously, have you not seen a men's toiletries ad recently? "Men's skin is like LEATHER", "Buy new FACE PROTECTOR", it's mental how manly they try to make it sound. Selling it like car detailing is actually kind of genius...
That is... actually a really good idea! I could go a nail resurfacing
Pure gold. Well done. Heck, I'd go get a dermal overhaul any time.
Why not? Near me is a men's haircare place where the hairdressers not only dress skimpy (and offer massages) but their website looks like a langerie catalogue with artful, black-and-white shots. And the haircuts are like 45 dollars for the privelege of not quite seeing anything while they happen.
Wow, just wow! Brilliant!
This just might work.Seriously.If you throw in a pun at least every other sentence, you'll double the number of customers. The puns could all be lame, as long as they're obvious.
......and they could open these 'Body Shops' in strip malls next to those obnoxious 'Sport Clips' franchises.
My God.... this idea might be profitable. Terrible, but profitable.
Holy crap is that ever a good idea.
Well, I'm not sure about spas for men, but there are sports-themed hair salons for men.
Years ago, Axe had a commercial for their body wash that was based on this exact notion. (Of course, all of the machine operators were sexy sudsed-up women, because it was an Axe commercial.)
I googled "spa for men". Most of the first page told me how it is completely okay for men to go to a spa, a sure sign that it is weird for men to go to a spa.Also one link told me that if I was gay and in Bangkok there was totally a spa there for me.
That's actually flippin' brilliant!
And apropos of the subject, in recent years I've taken to using my dremel tool with a grinding attachment to keep my big toe nails in check.
