During today's "Ask Wease" segment someone emailed in an "Ask Billy" question... How does Superman shave?
I answered off the top of my head.... he would probably make a razor out of a piece of metal from the rocket that brought him to earth. Being that it's Kryptonian metal, it would have the same properties on him here on Earth, that it would on the planet Krypton.
During the commercial break Pauly and I bantered about other possibilities... using his heat vision bounce off a mirror to burn off the hair? A razor made of Kryptonite?
I did some research because the question stuck in my head, and it turns out that the question was based on a promotion Gillette is doing with the new "Man Of Steel" movie. In the film trailer there is a scene where Superman has a growth of facial hair, so Gillette has asked this question of it's users, and celebrities like Mayim Bialik (Blossom, The Big Bang Theory), the guys from Mythbusters, Bill Nye The Science Guy, and my hero, writer/director/actor/podcaster Kevin Smith. I think Kevin's reply sounds sort of familiar. I guess great minds think alike.
