*Disclaimer: Ad. This post contains PR items.

So, here's the story; my Pops is a new Facebook user and every ad that pops up on his feed, he thoroughly investigates. That's how I was introduced to Skull Shaver. Via my dad's Facebook ads. It's his 70th birthday next month and I called him asking if there was anything specific he'd like as a present and he immediately announced 'a skull shaver.'
