Welcome to the 456th edition of Who Am I?, the weekly game where I dish out a daily clue to a subject and you have to guess who or what it is.

Every day, the clues get easier. The winner of this week's game gets a piece of my gratitude.

This week's subject is a THING.

CLUE #1: I was created in the 1940s.

Congrats, IRBS!

It's Norelco, aka North American Philips [electrical] Company. It was created when Philips was told be Philco not to use their name in America because of the two names being similar. Today, the name applies to Philips' personal care products, like razors.


We're off for the holidays. We'll be back in the new year!
