Rubes Cartoons - Tales from a Twisted Mind

RSS By: Leigh Rubin,

A cartoonish look at life...


Feb 22, 2010

I am not a big fan of the modern practice of body scarification otherwise known as piercing. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not entirely opposed to it. Pierced ears are okay. I knew someone once that had to use screw on earrings because her ears weren’t pierced. (Ouch!) Those screw on earrings are nothing more that miniature medieval torture devices. I feel sorry for any earlobe that must endure such a horrible fate. (It’s not like they stop the pain by confessing to anything either!). I am even okay with a delicate nose piercing...just a tiny bit of décor, definitely not a gaudy nose ring. Even a pierced bellybutton is alright if it’s on the subtle side.  It’s when people get their eyebrows, cheeks, necks, lips, tongues (Double OUCH!) and even their unmentionables pierced is what I am talking about. Seeing someone with multiple pieces of metal sticking through some part of their face is more distractive than attractive. I guess what I’m saying is that while some people find the pierced look appealing, the last thing I’d ever need is another hole in my head.

 There’s always a hole lotta laughs at:
