Just When You Thought You'd Seen It All.

Bagel heads? What the hell?

National Geographic's new television series Taboo has shed light on the bizarre Japanese trend for “bagel heads”. Japan is the locus of weird. Especially in places like Tokyo, where you're compacted in with millions of other people, if you want to look like an individual the standards are HIGH.

Supposedly, the increasingly popular procedure is done by injecting saline into the forehead, then pressing in the center of the swollen area with a thumb. It’s temporary, so your “bagel” absorbs into your body after 6 to 24 hours, and that’s a good thing – no bagel-headed grandmas will be walking around in 50 years.

I can't see that you need to run out and sign up for any training on how to do this...
