Zombie Makeover

At last! A way for a zombie to feel good about itself! Why should Botox, vampire facials, nipping and tucking be the domain of breathers alone?

We can thank the gang warfare in a town called Ciudad Juárez in Mexico. In particular a dentist, a Dr Alejandro Hernández Cárdenas, is the man responsible for this breakthrough ‘medication’. Injecting it into old, mummified cadavers, it ‘brings them to life’ as the article says. Going from withered prune to recognisable individuals, it shows up scarring, moles, and even fingerprints, all of which enable effective autopsy on the cause of death and identification of the thousands of corpses collected from the drug wars to which this unfortunate town has been subjected to since 2011, when in that year alone over 3,500 people were killed. They are down to a mere 500 murders this year, just keeping them in the top 20 most dangerous towns in the world.

Imagine there is a cure for zombie-ism, can the cure give people back their previous good (or otherwise) looks? Or would they suffer the effects of being dead? No longer. Imagine the sales pitch in the nail-bar or the beautician parlours. “While having those scabby nails buffed, how about a liquid refill? Get rid of that unsightly mottling and all those skin creases. It would make you look years fresher!”

I really like that idea!

BTW – I’m only a little bit metrosexual; I only know about those types of beauty treatment through my other half – I just don’t tune into stuff at that level – Thanks Paget Urner 🙂
