Voluntary amputation: toe bone removal

Plastic surgeons are offering a new procedure to their customers. It is called toe tuck, and it involves shortening or complete removal of bone inside toe pinky.

Who would voluntarily amputate one’s own toe? Well, it appears that the surgeons are merely satisfying the growing demand for pointed feet to fit better in designer shoes.

Similar to slender waist craze, that caused lung diseases from tight corsets and optional amputation of lowest ribs, modern women have a new mania: glamour. This requires every Cosmo girl to have high-arched, pointed feet to wear tight and narrow pointed designer shoes. Those women who don’t, but still want to be fashionable, turn to plastic surgeons for a toe tuck.

Cutting thumbs to fit an Iphone touchscreen doesn’t seem that bizarre anymore.
