irony

I've noticed in my recent late night flippings about that one of the cable channels is replaying episodes of the original Extreme Makeover in which ordinary people born with large noses and very little in the chin department would undergo surgeries to have part of their nose taken to construct a new chin...or something to that effect. I've never actually sat through an entire episode and am not even sure if the program is still on.
Anyway, I recall that they would sometimes take a couple who thought themselves goofy looking and reconstruct each and then have a big tearful reuniting in front of friends and family. They had literally put all that ugliness behind them and were set to venture together into a happy and rather average looking future.
However, the thing that was never addressed on the show was the fact that the young couple still had chinless and nose heavy genes to pass onto their children, and those traits they had so happily put behind them would only be compounded in their offspring.
There must be another spin-off in that somewhere.

Just this morning my sister was watching a rerun of this. She was telling of this pitifullly ugly redneck who had teeth like those plastic teeth you can buy and scary acne from the Ozarks. She said they fixed him up with teeth that looked like a famous actor. They fixed all his flaws and he looked plastic-like.

That'll look really good when he goes back to his mechanic job.

I think you're on to something here. We need to pitch this to someone in Hollywood!

This is sensible and reasonable.
Good point, Wrecks.
