Five for Fighting

The '70s had disco, the '80s had Madonna, the '90s had grunge...but what about the '00s? Far be it from us to predict the future, but we think people will label this decade as "the years that more blades were added to razors." Cuttin' wars continue to this very day, and they're so stupid that in 2004 The Onion mocked the newly released Schick Quattro with the following headline: "Fuck Everything, We're Doing Five Blades." Two years later, fiction became fact with Gillette's Fusion razor, featuring five slices of neck-cutting glory. Join razor history by participating in Gillette's Face of Fusion contest, starting at 11 a.m. at Big 12 Victory Fest at the West End Marketplace, 1801 N. Market St. Show off your face, and if Gillette thinks it's five-blade-worthy, you'll win $500 and a spot in the finals for a chance at prizes like a car and a spot on a Gillette commercial. Entry is free. Visit
