Norelco Fights Terrorism?


The above photo shows my Norelco electric shaver. I bought it at Target. It works very well, just as advertised. So far as I know, there are millions of others exactly like it. So what’s my point?

Well… Do you see that little tag next to the plug? Let’s zoom in on that:

Here we see that the main image is clearly Chicago’s own Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower), along with an advisory that scissors are not permitted inside the building. Hmmm…

While I admire Norelco’s bold anti-terrorism stance, I’m left with more questions than answers: Why has Norelco chosen to publicize this information on their shaver cords? Or is this the Willis Tower management’s idea? Or the Department of Homeland Security’s idea? And what about the folks who work there – what do they do when they want to cut paper? It’s a mystery.
