I was going to write a post on something else today, BUT yesterday I received my unsolicited ValPak envelope that arrives in my mailbox every so often. I have to say that I usually keep one coupon out of the 30-40 or so coupons – it’s for a Chinese restaurant that we frequent about once a month. When searching for my Chinese restaurant coupon, I stumbled across this beauty –
I’m not even sure what to say. I mean if I get a boob job, does that mean that I only have to pay for one of the girls? Or if I pay for both of the girls, can I get my butt lifted for free?
I think this little coupon can be viewed as a commentary on our society. It’s taken something risky and serious like surgery (of any kind) and turned it into something like a Domino’s pizza weekend special!
Who would this coupon appeal to? Someone on the fence about plastic surgery just waiting for right deal to come along?
“Wow, I was really undecided about body altering surgery, but since you’re giving it away for practically nothing, I think I’ll do it!”
Do reputable plastic surgeons offer coupons? Hmmm…
What about other surgeries?
“I need my gallbladder removed, but I think I’ll wait for the best coupon deal to arrive in my ValPak envelope! Maybe they’ll have two-fer – gallbladder and appendix! Oh, wait! Here’s my ValPak envelope. Look, Honey, it’s my lucky day – a two-fer on useless organs! I’m giving them a call right now!”
The plastic surgery center of the coupon shown above is offering a special on the Brazilian Butt Lift (using your own natural fat – I have plenty of that!). Why Brazilian? Are they known to have the best looking booties around?
Hmmm…. maybe I do need a butt lift.
Hilarious! And I always curse the arrival of ValPak! Maybe next time I’ll check it out more carefully. 🙂
