What should you expect when you go to Dr. Nick Riviera and see him with a old can of Bon Vivant Vichyssoise and a needle?

Memory is a wonderwul thing. One of Johnny Carson's best Karnak the Magnificent jokes--Karnak puts the envelope to his forehead and intones the answer, "The Last Supper," duly repeated be Ed McMahon. The envelope is opened, and Karnak reads the question, "What do you call a can of Bon Vivant Vichyssoise Soup?"

Seriously now, whether it's Dr. Nick or the highest priced cosmetic surgeon, undergoing dangerous procedures out of vanity is morally disordered.
