I stumbled upon what some websites have called the latest plastic surgery craze – elf ears. A craze? Really? As yet, nobody seems sure how many have lined up to be elfed, but, apparently some teens, hoping to emulate their Lord-of-the-Rings and Avatar idols are choosing to undergo this new procedure that permanently elongates the upper ears into pointy, elfin, tips. Some have heralded the procedure as this generation’s shock stock – akin to previous generations' body-spanning tattoos and multiple piercings. Will stretched ear holes soon be passé compared to elf ears? What do you think of this “craze”– nutty or harmless?
