Every day a new terror. Each moment, a new crisis, wrenching us from our fragile sense of security. An endless nightmare. Dr. Phil McGraw without a moustache.
The host of your aunt’s favourite daytime TV therapy session has taken to social media to share an image of him holding a razor to his famous soup-strainer, and an apparent ‘after’ photo featuring his newly naked upper lip.
It is the hell we deserve. Look upon his works, ye mighty, and despair.
A follow-up post on Dr. Phil’s Instagram Story shows his wife, Robin McGraw, excitedly comment on the shave in a way which all but proves it’s a stitch-up.
However, fans of the Texan psychologist have shared their abject horror at the merest possibility of Dr. Phil showcasing his Dr. Philtrum.
