Cowell's Botox

Someone I know once remarked, "'Dishwasher safe' just means it hasn't been around long enough for anyone to get cancer yet," (or something very close to that).

What's going to happen when we've been around long enough to see what Botox does to the human body after years of exposure?

In an interview, Simon Cowell said, "To me, Botox is no more unusual than toothpaste...It works, you do it once a year - who cares?"

Who cares? Who cares?! I care!

According to the same article (from a web site on which you can also learn about UK breast enhancement), Cowell has also admitted to wearing platform shoes to appear taller, has denied dying his hair, and was insulted when he was asked to be a spokesperson for Viagra. Clearly, he's a little obsessed.

Oh, and by the way, I don't think Botox is "no more unusual than toothpaste." That's ridiculous. Maybe in Glamour-land, but down here in Real Life, (almost) everybody uses toothpaste, and a lot fewer inject goop under their skin.

Plus, toothpaste, whether it's more or less common, is absolutely necessary to prevent decay. But Botox keeps me from decaying, they'll say.

Yeah, we'll see...

May I also suggest the massive price discrepancy. If you're spending as much on toothpaste as you do on cosmetic surgery (it's surgery, I don't care what they say,) then you either have a really cheap - and potentially unlicensed - doctor or a very greedy dentist.

If on the other hand, you're so rich than you simply cannot tell the difference between a few bucks for toothpaste and a few thousand bucks to inject Botulinum toxin - the most toxic protein known to man - into your face... well... it must be rough. Can I ride on your jet sometime?

Yeah... toothpaste DOES NOT equal botchilism (sp?). One is bad for you, the other is required so you don't look like Bubba the Trailer King.

I'm just sayin'.
