Unmarried Brother sends the latest hot trend from Japan. I’m warning you, the photo is VILE.
Apparently, people in Japan are IMPLANTING SALINE BAGS SHAPED LIKE DONUTS IN THEIR FOREHEADS:
The popularity of so-called “saline inflation” is expanding among Japanese with a taste for the bizzare, as the appropriately-named Bizarre Magazine reports. Mod-crazy moon people congregate in places such as Tokyo’s “Department H” to have thin needles inject saline solution (normally used to irrigate wounds and for hydration) into the skin, causing it to inflate and deform. Foreheads aren’t the only frontier, either. Limbs, hands and boobs are all fair game. Boys looking to get their tanuki on can even have their scrota inflated, though regular applications may see the stretching become permanent. Other variants include using food coloring to change the appearance of the bulges and poking them to change their shape, as with the “bagelheads” above.

I’m so disgusted, but pleased that Unmarried Brother is getting so into Japanarama Mondays… is it enough to get him an Unterekkie in December? Mike and Matt will need the competition.
***As a complete side note, “forehead” is one of the few words that I pronounce incorrectly. I saw “farhead.” It’s weird, I know, get over it.
