Gillette disposes of common sense.

In a marketing coup, Gillette handed out 30,000 gift bags at the Democratic National Convention this week. Included in each gift bag was a Mach III razor. Small problem: Razors are on EVERYBODY'S list of prohibited items EVERYWHERE but your store, your car and your bathroom. Hence, every single one of them (30,000) had to be discarded by the delegates during bag searches prior to entering the convention floor. No doubt Gillette Corp. will be doing some shaving of their marketing staff in the near future.

Hey, I know. Start handing them out at airport, bus and train terminals!
