From the fringes, way out on the edges, comes a story that actually can claim some validity for appearing on the pages of a website that brings hard news to the attention of it's faithful readers/followers. The opening line of the item caught my eye and then grabbed my imagination;
THOUSANDS of British women are so desperate for a bigger bottom they are risking their lives by taking pills designed to fatten up chickens.
First question, just who is asking "how do I achieve that elusive bigger bottom look?" Anyone who genuinely craves that information is easily helped by pointing them towards the ice cream aisles in the nearest supermarket. So one could go the delicious ice cream route or, do it the modern way with a pill.
So where would you find such a pill? Thanks to some brilliant repurposing, a drug that had been used to make chickens fatter is now being sold to women who want to look more like Kim Kardashian (from behind). Lest you think I am casting aspersions on Ms. Kardashian, the pills were being advertised on her blog site.
The story from The Sun also makes a startling claim;
The poultry tablets are packed with hormones that have been linked to breast cancer and liver problems in humans.
Would any sane person risk breast cancer or liver problems for the opportunity of creating a more rounded silhouette? Evidently there are many women who might forego the risk as we learned the following;
Now scores of online sites are also offering "herbal" versions of the tablets with names like Star Curves, Big Beautiful Butt Formula, and Brand New Booty pills.
Manufacturers claim that their pills are not the same as the poultry boosters and only contain exotic plant ingredients that mimic their pharmaceutical equivalents.
If you're thinking, "oh that can't happen here." Think again. A quick check of eBay shows that you can buy a 12 month supply of something called the "Booty Enhancement Butt Enlargement Formula BBB" for just under $800.00.
(Personal opinion warning) I would rather spend the $800 on trying a new and different flavor ice cream each and every week for a year.
