For the Birds

Well, more like from the birds, actually...

If you've ever had bird poo drop from the sky and onto your head — heck even if you haven't — it's probably pretty hard to imagine forking over almost $200 to have someone massage bird doodoo into your face for the better part of an hour.

But there's a price to pay for healthy skin and many in New York City are “flocking” to try this latest anti-aging craze.

The Geisha Facial given at Shizuka New York, a day spa in midtown Manhattan, doesn’t contain just any run of the mill pigeon poo. It’s made from dried nightingale droppings imported from Japan and mixed with rice bran.

WTF is wrong with people???
What's next???

Imma open a spa up in my backyard and introduce an EXCLUSIVE new treatment where I squeeze Lola (our Basset Hound) over the client's face. I'll play Enya in the background.

Very fancy.

Thanks Purple Trekkie for making me aware of this lovely practice.

Oh, I LOVE Enya -- she's right up there with my other fav; Celine Dion :-D
