WTF Is A Bagelhead?

Watch out for these freaks, because they've got a forehead shaped like a bagel and an oy vey attitude to match!

Bagelheads have their foreheads injected with a saline solution that they mold into a bagel-like shape, and it's a trend that's still blowing up in Japan many years later.

Adrienne first brought you the story of the Bagelhead body modification trend in June of 2011 (Link), and I can't help but wonder- why is this still a thing?!


I first brought this to the public in the 1990s. I wrote a short history of it here:

It's very, very silly that this is being called a "trend" let alone something "new". It really drives home how incompetent the world of journalism is, even empires like National Geographic. And I always have to wonder. If they can't get BASIC stuff like this factually correct, stuff that can be confirmed with a simple google search or an email, why should I trust ANYTHING they write on ANY subject?

It might be new for people who don't surf the net, peruse blog pic dumps or didn't have access to a computer. Or maybe people who use a public institutions computers which have sites like Bme blocked. Hmm??
