A little behind

The death of former Miss Argentina Solange Magnano of complications from a botched gluteal implant prompted this musing from Stacy McCain:

She died trying to get a bigger butt? I’m sorry, but why didn’t someone tell her about the miraculous American butt-growth formula known as bacon double cheeseburger?

You may be sure my kids know about this formula. Then again, they were reared correctly from the start.

    Ah, if it only worked that easily. (I could do with a bit more padding in that one particular spot, but unfortunately everything goes to my thighs or waist instead. Too bad there’s not some kind of adipose GPS that we can use).

    When intelligent nanotech becomes available for internal use, every molecule of fat will be stored precisely where we want it, until the desired amount is reached; then all fats will be rejected for storage until a vacancy opens due to metabolic need.

    I imagine there will be a lot of people suddenly discovering the hard way that fat actually does have a legitimate dietary purpose.

    Not to mention that “rejecting dietary fat for storage” is already a side effect of certain diet drugs, and the way the body rejects it is distinctly unappealing. (“Anal leakage,” two words I hope I will never use together again.)

    FJ, wasn’t there a Jeff Foxworthy punchline about that? “It’s not even fun to say!”

    I came to terms with my body long ago and that anyone feels a need for surgical alteration is plain nuts in my not at all humble opinion. The idea of putting myself in such danger is, at best, repugnant and stupid. Any surgery is high risk which to means to me that one doesn’t have it unless necessary and no, vanity is not a good reason.
