Surgical Strike

Fascinating interview in The Arab News with Colonel Qaddafi’s plastic surgeon:

His assignment: to shave years off Muammar Qaddafi’s appearance by removing fat from his belly and injecting it into his wrinkled face. The Libyan leader also got hair plugs.

I believe Gaddafy also had the excess, sagging underhang from his “y” surgically removed and injected into the hole in his “G” to turn it into a smooth perfectly formed “Q”, with a beauty spot added to the surviving line of his “y” to sculpt it into a pert, youthful “i”. The new spelling is said to have shaved a decade off Qaddafi’s CIA file.

According to this report, Qaddafi and Berlusconi have the same cosmetic surgeon. That being so, wouldn’t it be easier to weaponize his Botox?

First: Irving asserts that abortion was legal in our country from Puritan times until the 1840s, at least before “quickening.” That’s an overstatement. ... Read More
