This Little Piggy Had A Date With A Bonesaw

On the news last night I saw one of the stupidest things I've seen in a long time - people are going to the doctor to have their toes shortened. Yes, people with unsightly, overlong second toes can now have the bone shortened so that they can wear open-toed shoes & high heels.


I mean, there are some medically releated reasons to have one's market going piggy shortened, but the women that the news article focused on were doing it for purely cosmetic reasons. One woman, who didn't want her face shown (probably because family & friends would laugh themselves retarded upon finding out that she had plastic surgery on her toe) said that she did it because her hideous, freakish, over-grown toe was noticeable, she admitted, probably only to her. But now, through the marvels of medical science, she can wear spike heeled shoes &, apparently, not worry about tripping people with her mutant digit. Think of the tragedy that has now been avoided! *whew!*
