Grooming Guys Boycott Bert

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One grooming gentleman is out to clean up the men of the world – and he’s starting one Sesame Street muppet at a time.

The Grooming Lounge is an upscale chain of men’s barber shops in Washington D.C., but for co-founder Michael Gilman, the deep-rooted problem with men’s grooming begins with legendary muppet, Bert.

Gilman says, “My kids were watching Sesame Street and I saw the worst grooming snafu – Bert has the worst unibrow of all time!”

So, to protest the eyebrow eyesore, Gilman is boycotting the iconic kids show in hopes that Bert will clean himself up and send a positive plucking message.

Gilman says, “Bert teaches so many great lessons, but it’s my civic duty to say that his unibrow is unacceptable. I’m boycotting until he sees fit to have two distinct eyebrows.”

Although Gilman points out where Bert lacks wax, he’s not going to let this hairy issue divide his family.

Gilman says, “I love Sesame Street. Ernie’s great, especially his obsessiveness with bathing.”
