I have some news for you: kids today are officially bat-shit crazy.

If you haven't already heard, girls (and some guys) -- in an attempt to have big, luscious, puffy lips a la Kylie Jenner -- are suctioning their LIPS in shot glasses and other receptacles (did I see a yogurt container?) and posting the results-gone-wrong on social media (because that's what you do).

Apparently the suctioning creates instantaneous lip puffiness, but long term there's bruising and broken blood vessels. Ouchie.

And I thought high-waisted jorts and flower headbands were bad. This is taking vanity and body dysmorphia to a new level.

Girls, save your money and get ACTUAL lip injections if you are feeling your lips aren't large enough. Hey, I think they even sell lip puffing lip gloss at Sephora. Try that! Giving yourself bruises and hickeys ON YOUR FACE is not the answer. 

Or, might I suggest, sit back and think about this a little more rationally. Why do you want ginormous lips? Are you trying to get into porn? Modeling? No? Then why do you want to look all porn-y? Sure, big lips can be sexy, but don't you have an everyday life you need to be a part of? Do you want to look like the office bimbo? 

I think everyone out there is getting dumber. They must be if they are longing to be/look like the Kashdashian/Jenner sisters. Are sex tapes cool these days too?

Click here or here (seriously? the Washington Post is writing about this shit?!) to read all about it.

OK see ya. I'll be over here high-fiving myself for the fact that I will never have a child who does this to herself.
