1.0 out of 5 stars OOOOOWWWWWW!!!, June 3, 2010
This review is from: Groom Mate Platinum XL Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer (Health and Beauty)
This little bloodthirsty monster works absolutely fantastic 99% of the time - spin and trim, gets the stragglers that electric back-and-forth models miss, easy and fast.

Then there's that 1%. It transforms, magically, into an instrument of evil Torquemada would have included in his torture kit. It becomes a little set of pilars, rather than a clipper.

Every so often it grabs a hair. It doesn't gently fondle the hair, and it doesn't caress the hair, and it doesn't bloody brush it: it grips it with the strength of ten frickin' Grinches, plus two, and...

It.

Will.

Not.

Let.

Go.

I sear I can hear it giggling over the sound of my screaming.

So does the pain of the 1% of the time outweigh the "absolutely fantastic 99% of the time" operation enough to warrant a 1 star review?

Also you misspelled pliers.

Yes, the 1% - Vs. 99% is a deal killer, and a zero star rating from me. Here's the deal: my first wife was smart, pretty, and almost perfect. Then she hit me with a shovel for cheating on her, which I didn't do. That was a zero star situation for me.

Same same.

Schuylercat I agree with most of your humorous review except for the 1% estimate. It's more like 5%. But i do agree with your description of the pain. If you're a masochist and enjoy surprises, you'll love the fearful anticipation that comes with the useful of this painful tool.

So when are you going to write a book for us? Your style is impeccable and outrageously funny. Maybe you could write a sitcom about your wife and her shovel fetish. Cheers.

Geeze Schuylercat....I just posted a comment about you writing a book and/or sitcom and I got a great idea for a subject. How about nose hairs that refused to be clipped and grew to such length with uncontrollable rage that they took over Los Angeles......kinda like the old Blob movie.

You have to be careful. Keep the trimmer still if you're not spinning it, then you won't have that problem.
