November 15, 1904

On November 15, 1904, King C. Gillette patented the Gillette razor blade. Men and women still use the disposable razor blades today. Nothing twisted about this post except FOR HIS NAME! Somebody’s momma named their baby King. What did they name the dog? Emerson?

His grandson, King Gillette II, later invaded and conquered Paper Mate, further expanding their empire of products. Share this post, if you think maybe they took that whole ‘King’ thing just a little too seriously.

Has the ability to see the funny and absurd in most things and will always remark on it, even if it means getting the stink-eye from his victims.
