Smoking and Shaving--together at last?

During my morning commute (about a 30 mile drive each way) I noticed a man behind me smoking a cigarette and shaving while driving. Obviously, there are safety issues with this type of activity, but I'm more intrigued with the idea of combining two things that I never had imagined: smoking and shaving,--together at last. I'm not a smoker, but I have been known to shave on occasion. Sometimes I shave at parties or when everyone else is shaving and I can quit anytime I want (really, I can!!!). But to think that I'm missing out on the smoke-shave experience makes me want to run to the nearest "Smokes 4 Less" store (ironically, these stores are always located near or connected to liquor stores, cash advance stores and gun shops). It's the holiday season--the time when companies like Norelco, Braun and Remington unleash the latest in shaving technology--why have they been holding out on the smoke-shave phenomenon? Is the government keeping this a secret? Does the smoke make shaving more pleasurable? Or, is the shaving experience so great that one wishes to smoke upon completing the act?

In the spirit of preventing youth from "doing" drugs...ahem...I mean to prevent you from "doing" smoke-shaving, no razors for you this Christmas!
