Its really pleasing when someone takes the time to write well. This one is right up there with the Amazon review of the guy who used Veet on his genitals.

There is an element of truth to it, but frankly I think he's just soft. Even softer than Australians who wear thermals in 'winter'. He should give up cycling and take up something easy like cake decoration.
