I cannot title this without resorting to bad punnage

In beauty parlours/salons across the country, one can obtain things called Gold and Pearl facials. With the Gold Facial, the stuff put on your face apparently contains tiny particles of gold. The Pearl Facial, of course, has tiny bits of pearl. I’ve never been able to understand this, myself. I cannot see what possible difference bits of gold could make to your complexion. But anyway.

Via Ryan (who is excellent), pretty much the ultimate in useless (and tasteless) consumer products. The Gold Pill. A capsule dipped in gold and filled with gold leaf. Why? It increases your self worth and…makes your crap all sparkly.

(The P.L suggests that this be made a mandatory part of dogs’ diets. He feels that this measure would lead to Malabar hill becoming a clean and generally paradisal place. I suspect shocking regionalism lies behind this comment.)

On a related note (sparkly poo, not regionalism) I found this video on the Lush.co.uk site some months ago. A greater body of sparkly poo related work needs to be developed. I’m holding out for pink, myself.

  1. Not dogs. Pomeranians. The Malabar Hill problem is caused by the members of a community which shall not be named owning Pomeranians. Said community is incapable both of owning real dogs, and of resisting gold, even if said gold comes in a warm and steaming package.

  2. apparently metal is really good if worn against the skin etc… for your system. at least that is the logic my mum gave me when she made me wear the iron bangle that all married Bong women wear – she says it prevents anemia. so i am guessing gold and pearl flecks would work by the same logic!

    read at the metrodad’s about something he was eating that made his pee look like nuclear waste – between that and sparkly crap! :D
