Botox rant

Mountain Man is getting a bit fed up with me. Whenever we watch TV I'm (slightly) obsessed with watching for who's had botox. I don't know why I do this... I have the same thing with pronouncing about crap adverts e.g. who'd buy this product on the strength of this advert?... and you can insert pretty much any product in the 'this' slot as far as I'm concerned.

You do have to wonder about the thought processes behind most ads. Also you have to wonder about the thought processes behind people who decide on having botox. The ultra-smooth forehead that's a bit shiny in the middle is the absolute giveaway.

My latest 'victim' is Shane Lynch from Boyzone, who was on Celebrity Masterchef this week. He not only has a forehead that doesn't move, but he's gone for those strange eyebrows that I've seen on many a woman who's been botoxed, but he's the first man I've seen like this.

Why can't people just grow old gracefully and accept that wrinkled foreheads are part of the process? It's beyond me, it really is.

Ok, well that's my rant for this week over. Bet you're pleased about that!


  1. And what about the John Lewis insurance ad then? :)

    1. Don't get me started on that one!
