Quinte, On. real estate agent: Plumbing the depths of our gene pool

Plumbing the depths of our gene pool

While this story is a little sad, and perhaps I should feel sorry for the ladies in question, my overriding feeling is one bordering on derision. I'm not a cruel person, but this is too good a story for me to pass up without comment.

Six women have been hospitalised in New Jersey for having had plumbing caulk injected into their derrieres by a quack in a hotel room. Apparently in an effort to have their bums looking more like Jennifer Lopez's they paid for this procedure to be performed on them. Now they are all breaking out in rashes and their bums look more like a moonscape than a Hollywood star's bum. Who would have guessed that plumbing caulk would be harmful to the body?

The first clue that this might not have been a good idea would have been that the procedure only cost $250.00. In their shoes, I would have wondered why it's a $6000.00 procedure elsewhere and this bloke is only charging a fraction of that. A second good clue would have been when they showed up for the procedure, and it was not going to take place in a medical facility, but in a hotel room. I think I might have had reason to worry right then. I might also have questioned the doctor's credentials at that time. I sure hope that this fellow didn't use a caulking gun, because if he did, and any of the ladies allowed him to proceed, then God help us all.

When I heard this story on the radio, I had to check to make sure it wasn't April first already.

It's amazing what some people will do in the name of beauty stupid vanity!

I am sure more men than women will make comments on this post!

Ellie McIntire Real Estate in Howard County Maryland (The McIntire Team of Long & Foster) You're right Ellie, it is all about vanity and trying to achieve things the easy way. Don't worry though, in the entire history of people doing stupid things, I'd be pretty confident that males are way out in front in the medal count.

Malcolm,

That's very sad....some people have such low self esteem that they'll go through anything to try and make themselves what they think the world wants.

I feel like an a@* just watching the clip.  Gotta love fox for those soft hitting news items to fill our day.  But wait, then there is real estate and listening to one agent reviewing their skills and it can be a little like injecting putty into your ears.  I had such a networking experience recently. That was 8 minutes in my life I will never get back.

Jo-Anne Smith- Oakville, Burlington and Mississauga Region Real Estate, Ont (Brekland Realty Group) Jo, having a quack inject caulking into your rear end in a hotel room is taking low self esteem to a whole new level.

Larry Lawfer (EXIT Realty Metro Dallas) I'm going to have to admit to you Larry, I didn't watch the whole clip. You're right though, listening to some agents can be a lot like injecting putty into my ears. As a collective we have some pretty big mouths.

This would be a great topic for some home inspectors, they could argue on what type of caulking that should have been used!

Envelope Real Estate Brokerage Inc I'm sure it would be an interesting debate Ty, a home inspector probably would have been just as qualified to do the job as that quack.

It seems that some people just don't want to get old, but if you have to die to get to Heaven, aren't you getting closer to Heaven the older you get? LOL
