Want to F with Unilever who bought Dollar Shave Club?

In case you haven’t heard the latest in startup news, Unilever bought Dollar Shave Club last night for close to 1 Billion.

Pretty ingenious for a company who only exists to buy blades from one company, put them in fancy packaging, and resell them to you for a higher price.

Did you know that Dollar Shave Club are just Dorco blades and handles?

    This reveals a lot.

    I don’t understand why people think having blades shipped to them is more economical than just buying them directly from retail.

    Are shoppers really that lazy?
