Victor Kiam

Victor Kiam, who so famously said "I liked it so much I bought the company" was ostensibly talking about Remington shavers.

But shavers can't be that exciting, surely?

My theory revolves around te fact that Remington also do ear and nose hair removal technology

Maybe he bought the company because one day (just after middle age crept up on him unexpectedly) he found the need to own some nose-hair clippers. However after he walked into the shop, a "teenage boy & condoms incident" happened to him, and faced with the shame of being seen asking for the latest hairy-ear-trimmers, he decided that buying the whole company was maybe the less embarassing option ?
