Today there was an article in the Herald about do-it-yourself-botox and how badly it had gone wrong for some people.
I mean what can you expect when you're injecting your lips with cooking oil?
Read the article, it's scary.
I, for one, can't begin to understand what goes through some women's minds.
There's this thing called 'training' that seems to be ignored. If you needed a mole removed, would you consider finding an online do-it-youself site ? Some people would argue it comes down to natural selection and then there's Forest Gump who would argue 'Stupid is as stupid does.'
Anyhou, the images that accompanied the article were frightening. They were lips belonging to an Australian woman who didn't want to be named, but wanted to alert other women to the dangers of online botox buying. So good on her for trying to prevent others from walking in her misguided footsteps.
I can't find the images online but, needless to say, her lips looked like rubber duckys. Take these lips.
Perform a rubber ducky enlargement......and you're beginning to get the picture.
Come to think of it, I would love to transport a fully-botoxed-facelifted-spray-tanned-semi-starved woman from 2011 and plonk them in a dinner party in 1915 and see what the reaction was.
Possibly that some had escaped from the circus.
