Stupid White Man Speaks with Forked Tongue

Just heard this on the radio this AM. Throw away those metal studs, the new body modification fad is tongue splitting. Yes, you read correctly, it's now hip to hiss and lisp like a snake. Evidently, the two halves can move independently of eachother too. [sarcasm]Waaaaay coooooool.[/sarcasm]. I guess it's been a fad for a while now, but not being unfortunate enough to have a teenager of my own, or being masochistic enough to walk down State Street these days, I'm out of the loop on this one.

OK, one part of society is hung up on looking so damn normal...removing every little nasal bump and wrinkle and blemish and minor imperfection and becoming Stepford People, and this other part of society is turning themselves into freakin' reptiles with split tongues and scale tattoos and horn implants. Has everyone lost their damn MINDS? Has the world gone MAD? What's wrong with just looking like YOURSELF? Something like The Who's song "Can You See The Real Me?" would be an anathema nowadays.
