Battery's not included?

OK, so where do I plug my battery shaver in?

What is a "mains shaver"? I do not understand. Is it supposed to be "man's shaver"? Surely not "mane shaver." If it is "man's shaver only," there where would a woman plug in her shaver?

No matter how you read the sign, it makes no sense, unless I am simply missing something.

Good point, Paulos. As a electrical engineer it never occurred to me that the word 'mains' would be confusing. It is in-house jargon for the 'main' electrical supply to a property, 110V (US) 230V (UK) etc.

Oh, please fix the error in this post! You have written "Battery's not included?" but you meant "Batteries not included?"

"Battery's" is not an error. Battery [shaver]s are not included - I simply left out the word shaver and left it as " 's " to make a pun. Batteries makes no sense whatsoever. So, sorry, no fix will be applied.
