    All these soaps and creams, I can't take it any more.

    I remember quite some time ago while traveling through the town of Dur-Katlimmu I was discussing with King Adad-Nirari III which of two shaving soaps I should try. He said having more than one of anything was bad luck (except for him of course) and behavior like that would anger Salmanu and bring a terrible curse upon you.

    Hmm, maybe this shave thing is the curse.

    Perhaps you could shorten your 'handle' from the big spender to simply BS

    Aha! Spendur, so you know about Adad-Nirarri III (810-783 B.C.), one of the great kings of the Assyrian Empire. A few years after him came one of the greatest: King Sargon II (721-705 B.C.). My namesake was King Ashur-Uballit I (1363-1328 B.C.), who made the Assyrian empire a powerhouse. My hero, though, is Ashurbanipal (668-633 B.C.), the artistic and intellectual warrior king of the Assyrian empire.

    How sweet to talk about my heritage. Had these great kings not had royal coiffured beards, I'm sure they would have used Martin de Candre and Castle Forbes.
