China is overtaking us on the decadence front

China has become a fierce economic competitor. Now it's overtaking us on the decadence front as well.

Reuters reports that Feng Qian (with a prototypically vacant expression) has been selected to be China's first Miss Artificial Beauty. (All contestants must have had plastic surgery.)
Feng, wearing a flowing gold evening gown and a bright smile on her resculpted face, said she hoped the event would remove some of the stigma associated with plastic surgery. …

[Feng's four procedures] added a fold to her eyelids, liposuctioned fat from her belly, reshaped her cheeks, and injected botox to alter facial muscles.
Apparently she didn't have the leg-extension surgery that I mentioned earlier.
