phaeton Posted March 1, 2004 Share Posted March 1, 2004 Reminds me of that "Extreme Makeover" show that my roommates watch... you know, they elect some "lucky" individual (sometimes couples, too), give them a nose job, chin job, standard facelift, different hairstyles, dental work, etc to make them "beautiful"... It's pretty ridiculous. I think the one that i watched all the way through was with some woman who was a bodybuilder. She pumps iron and works manual labour type jobs, but then would complain that "My muscular physique and masculine features make me feel much less than a woman"... One of the ones that i watched was a couple about to get married, and they did both the bride and groom. It was all secretive and nobody in either person's family was allowed to see either one. At the end, they all pulled off the veil or appeared from behind the curtain, and ppl were clapping and cheering, and the d00d's mom was sobbing "oh, he's so handsome!!" etc... you know, i think if i went and hacked up my face to look different, my mom would kick my ass. There wasn't a damn thing wrong with the way these people looked before, i think they've just got vanity/esteem/personality issues. In a few cases, i thought they looked worse afterwards, but who am i to say. I realise Lee was looking at tabloids for entertainment value, but at the same time television spews this sort of crap constantly. It all ties together. Dr. Seuss: The Original White Rapper . WWND?
