Let the belly buttons ring out…

When I see a belly button pierced with a ring or some other ungodly thing, I here it ring out against the insanity of it all. What is the purpose of drilling a hole through your flesh and inserting a useless ugly metal ring?  Shall I clip on a dog leash and pull you around? How about a ring through the nose?  Bulls have rings in their noses so they can be led around the barnyard without fear that the bull will resist. Bulls obey the ring since it causes pain to pull against it.

Now what on Earth is a human being doing with a ring in his nose or anywhere else the demented mind can think of?  How about the eyelid, the cheek, the lips, the private parts, you name it and someone has pierced it. The only body part these people don’t need to pierce is their brain since it already has been pierced with a dagger of stupidity. Some people have more metal attached to their body than a metal detector would know what to do with.  In case no one has told you, you look incredibly ugly and foolish.

Anyone concerned about infections?  You should be.  Anytime you puncture the body you allow for infection to set in.  Why on Earth would you want to invite the possibility of an infection?  Just get one of those rings caught on something and have it ripped out.  Not only would that be extremely painful, but think how long it would take to heal.  Think about the risk of infection then.  Not only that, but now you’ve got a nasty scar.  Imagine it tearing out your lip or some other sensitive area.  If you were to use a limousine service how foolish would you feel if it started bleeding all over the seats?

But who in their foolish, demented mind is going to take on a practical point of view?  How does one get their mind in such a state that sensible is foolish and unstylish?  It is the culture I tell you.  Today’s culture for young people especially, is reaching a point of absurdity regarding foolish fads and what is considered appropriate.  When all your friends have succumbed to these fads then you are the odd man out.  Peer pressure seems to have the power to force young people beyond their normal good senses into the abyss of stupidity.
