Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning for collagen lips…

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning for collagen-enhanced lips
The wretched refuse of your plastic-surgery-free shores
Send these, the not-yet-sexualized to me,
I lift my lamp beside the Botox door!”

On Fridays I’ve been posting some of my dad’s cartoon parodies, which of late have focused on the regrettably ubiquitous duckface that some young women and girls seem to think lends a sexy aspect to their profile pictures on Facebook. Here, the unimpeachably classy Lady Liberty demonstrates yet again that the duckface is the opposite of classy. Can you imagine the woman on the left described thus:

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles.

That’s a heckuva reputation to trade in for what passes as sexy on social media, don’t you think?

{Happy Friday}
