Electronic Pencil?

Woman and Home / 1st January 1962

Yes, an electronic pencil. Not an electric pencil, like you thought. Electrolysis is still used to remove hair, but it’s generally advised nowadays to consult a trained professional, rather than muck about with electric shock equipment at home. What I want to know is: what do wristbands have to do with the whole thing?

“To Lady Manager”

How patronising is that?

An electronic pencil sounds like something the Doctor tried out and rejected, before settling for a sonic screwdriver.

I suppose you could use one to fight a Yeti, disintegrating it one hair at a time.

Dave: I think they were trying to make customers believe that their order would be handled discreetly by a woman, rather than a sniggering bloke in a warehouse.

Red: I keep hearing ‘detachable penis’ in my head. Not sure what that says about me.

“Destroy” hair? A bit frightening.

“Electromedica” sounds like a crazy evil future corporation ready to rule the world.

“Lady Manager”….now, does that mean a female manager or someone who manages the ladies? As it’s 1962 I suspect the latter
