So, it gets a little hairy

Shaved—Submission: JL

Please don’t confuse Shaved with the 1983 cult classic film “Saved” shtarring Sean Connery, in which Connery attempts to write an anonymous love letter to his perceived arch nemesis, but his computer continuously malfunctions in ways that prohibits him to save the document.

This film received 5 Tevas because Sean Connery was shimply shtunning.

No, Shaved transports us into a Seussian land. Men, women, and children have beautiful flowing beards braided with Truffula silks. Merc, age seven, resents his beard. It prohibits him from deftly climbing trees and skillfully skipping rope. He confesses his discontent to his best friend Flaunuva, who urges him to keep quiet. She reminds him of the consequences of professed anti-beard leanings: eating soup served without a spoon for the rest of his life; receiving last pick as a beard braiding partner; and teetor-tottering with someone who outweighs you, which is always the worst. Merc searches deep within himself in hopes of finding the steely resolve necessary to adhere to the socio-cultural demands of his world. Does Merc find happiness within his flaxen facial hair or does he go against everything he’s known to live freely, but as an outcast?

This book received 4 ¼ Tevas.     

PS If you are confused as to what is happening, please read this and it should all make sense.
