When the breasts are fake, and so is the doctor…

April 19, 2010

Quick quiz: Who would you LEAST like to find out is a bogus, untrained fraud?

FRANCEa) The guy fixing your washing machine

b) The yard man trimming your magnolias

c) The accountant preparing your taxes

d) The plastic surgeon doing your breast implants

Yeah, I think most of us would have to go with that breast implant thing.

In Venezuela, police have arrested a man and woman accused of impersonating plastic surgeons and providing women with silicon breast and buttock implants from an illegal clinic in an apartment.

Police were tipped off by a former client, and caught the suspects in an apartment which contained surgical equipment and a surgical table.

I don’t even want to know how the former client decided maybe there was something amiss. I’m sure it’s not a pretty story.

Of course, lest you get the wrong idea, the suspects did have SOME formal training. They WERE beauticians, after all.

Pamela Anderson wore that to her wedding? How original!

I recently read that there is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer’s research.

This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Dr., I just pray my family’s long tradition of good memories sticks with my generation…

although I am not too sure what I wanted the good memory for anymore…

Who was the breast man?

Thanks for keeping us abreast of the situation, Bob. I know a well-rounded readership is important to you. I, for one, perk right up when I see there’s a new post. Pamela Anderson and motorboating … what can I say, it’s a classic!

LOL Doc, unfortunately, it will be so true….That’s the first reason I’ve come up with that I’m glad I’ll be dead by then.

My son volunteers at the local Humane Society, where he feeds the dogs, takes them for walks, and plays games with them. He also volunteers at a retirement home for the elderly, where he feeds the residents, takes them for walks, and plays games with them.

While he is off volunteering, I feed our dogs, take them for wlaks, and play games with them.

(And they have a therapy dog at the retirement home, which he takes from room to room to visit with the residents.)

He finds both the Humane Society and Sunset House very rewarding experiences.

DD … When Pam’s boob’s retire you could feed them, take them for walks and play games with them too! :-)

(Seriously, your son sounds like a good kid. We need more volunteers like him!)

Breasts, Butts, Crime – I’m pretty sure the tags for this post could not get better. I think I laughed more at the tags than I did at the actual post :)

Yeah, CG, Buttock implants… some of them dont seem to have them…. Life is not fair at times….

Ok so who would win in a fight, J-Lo’s booty or Beyonces jelly for which you are not ready?

Butt implants seem to be becoming popular in the basic- kitchen-home-plastic-surgery circuit. It’s not hard, I hear. You just need to make sure the implants are properly seated.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

Of course, there are plastic surgeons just about everywhere who will perform butt-implant surgery. I know a woman who was born in Ohio and reared in Michigan!

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

A woman makes an appointment with a plastic surgeon to get butt implants. The plastic surgeon tells her she doesn’t need them, and looks down to read a text message on his cellular. The woman says, but men tell me that my butt is not attractive. Miss, the surgeon says, you do not need implants. My receptionist just sent me a text saying that she can’t find the chair you sat on.

The moral of the story is, beware of plastic surgeons who will make an ass out you.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

I guess butt implants are expensive. I heard of a woman who could only afford one implant. So now, if someone doesn’t find her attractive, she just turns the other cheek.

(I know. I know. It’s a half-assed joke if there ever was one.)

Aaahahahahaha DoctorDoll! Really, I laughed so hard I started to cry. My boss is really starting to wonder about me.

Yeah. I know, I thought the same thing…he’s only starting now?

But seriously, plastic surgeons perform many important, and necessary, procedures. Here, a boy was born recently without eyelids. A plastic surgeon made a set of eyelids for the boy when theparents had him circumcized. Unfortunately, more surgeries are needed to address complications. Unfortunately, now, the boy is cockeyed.

Was the Suffrage movement only for getting the right to vote?
It should also have been for the right to see good looking, naked men on this blog too…..
My knowledge of American/European history is not totally upto the mark… So, go suck your thumb before you complain about my lack of knowledge!

Shra, do I have to go kick some ass for you? Just say the word and the sky will fall on some poor soul!

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

oo!!! My knight in shining armour!!
If BG doesnt post those pics me and E and the rest of the ladies on this blog want, then maybe you could do somehting to him? (Fluttering her eyelids coyishly)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

I’m starting to wonder Shra, if Baz isn’t hoping we’ll go on strike and leave the blog…not like it would ever happen, but maybe this is all part of his nefarious scheme to get rid of us?

That, or it’s his plot to keep us coming back on the vain, miniscule speck of hope that he’ll post us ladies some eye candy.

:?

Shra, I see that eye problem is back. You really need to have that looked at. And did you get rid of that unpleasant green thing behind your ears?

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

If you notice Shra, Mr. B. has gone back to his sly little smirk there so you know he is toying with ya. I dunno what his game is but he certainly has something up his sleeve.

Perhaps I will impose on justCAMs DC-3 privliges to fly me into D.C. and see if I can’t get some progress made for the ladies of this blog.
