UNCLE SAM OFFERS PERKS TO MAKE YOUR PERKS PERKIER!
According to Karen Schaler of the New Yorker magazine, you can join the Army and you and your family can receive a surgical makeover for free. Of course that might not be a bad idea after your ass has been shot off in this insane war but a war injury is not a requirement for a makeover. Think about it folks, your tax dollars are not only going to build buildings in Iraq, they are also going toward building boobies in the USA. Don't believe me? Read it for yourself. Seems we have a new recruiting tool and it will nip and tuck you if you'll just sign your name on the dotted war-line in the sand. I wonder if the guys can have a new tool too?
Great title she gave her story. It's titled, "Chest Out, Stomach In--All That You Can Be"
Here's a paragraph that might get you interested: "A Defense Department spokeswoman confirmed the existence of the plastic-surgery benefit. According to the Army, between 2000 and 2003 its doctors performed four hundred and ninety-six breast enlargements and a thousand three hundred and sixty-one liposuction surgeries on soldiers and their dependents. In the first three months of 2004, it performed sixty breast enhancements and two hundred and thirty-one liposuctions."
