You got a bedpan on your neck!

May 20, 2008

beautyworld-crop-120.jpgIf you’re like me, you figure this is a Number Six Cylon being resurrected on Battlestar Galactica. But no, turns out it’s actually a photo from a beauty show underway in Japan.

Our caption calls this “carbonate skin care equipment.” Since I don’t know what that is, I’m guessing this gizmo sucks your old face out through the hose and shoots a new face back up the same tube. Thummp! That’s the sound of your old sucked face, heading down the toilet!

This looks like a textbook definition of low self-esteem. I’d basically say unless this contraption can turn Mamie Eisenhower into Angelina Jolie, then sitting with a pink bedpan necklaceĀ isn’t worth the damage to your ego, if you have one.

When I want you to show me pink, this is decidedly not what I’m talking about. DESPITE the shape.

In other words, I’ll bet the top view makes the victim’s head look cute as a ‘button.’
