Battery-Powered Nosehair Clipper

This is definitely my longest-used 99-cent item. I've had it for well over a year and it's still going strong - a battery-powered nosehair clipper. While it is extremely fragile and very cheaply made (I think it would shatter if I dropped it on the floor), it is powered by a single AA battery and it effectively trims nose spiders just as well as a pricier model.

Here it is (right) next to my older, more expensive, clipper (left) -


While the older clipper resembled a medieval torture device which opperated by gripping and then painfully yanking out the nosehairs -


$6.50 manual clipper.


The battery operated model is a sleeker, more modern, and more humane gadget -


99 cent battery operated clipper.


What a bargain!

And somewhere some dumb, uneducated female is mistaking one of those clippers for a "personal pleasure device" and ending womanhood permanently...
