If my defense of the Jewish nose did not impress you, and you have decided to trim your tooter, you can now get it done over vacation for merely the price of a plane ticket.
A Floridian plastic surgeon is offering his rhinoplasty services pro-bono to eligible singles who would really benefit from a rebuilt rhinos. Take a week off for some fun in the sun, come back with a new nose. What could be a better deal?
Even better, you can see his work showcased in the topical music video by the Groggers – the lead singer has his nose done in exchange for the song. The credits in the video roll between a before and after profile.

Already wrote a blog post about my thoughts on this (as you may or may not know): http://www.walkingthegreyline.blogspot.com/2012/03/so-plastic-surgery-does-shidduchim.html – and I think the video is partially responsible for generation of the reprehensible column.
As I also mentioned in the comments on your other post, I’ve got a new sci-fi story in the works, to be released later this week, that takes this theme to the next level.
However, at the rate things are progressing, I wonder how much futuristic fiction is going to be a part of the story versus present reality – and THAT is scary.
Apparently it is also affecting baseball players…http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/7739970/carlos-beltran-st-louis-cardinals-pays-new-york-mets-pitcher-jon-niese-new-nose
Maybe that’s his spring break / pre-summer promo? Just like the saying, give a dog a bone and he wants your whole arm means that the free rhinoplasty is just bait but deep inside he knows that the patients will be back for more.
