Quandary Resolution 3489
wellerism, hungry ghost, elixir, neoterism


Beverly Hills is crowded with hungry ghosts -- those who will do anything for “improvement” or the removal of imperfections, always searching for an elixir which will bestow a more youthful appearance, so they undergo plastic surgery to the extreme and over time look more and more skeletal – skin stretched over bone, and give rise to neoterisms such as “Botox” and the past tense “Botox-ed” for those unable to move their facial muscles or show much expression due to their quest to remove wrinkles, and the wellerism: “Beauty is only skin deep”, said the woman as she received her Botox injection.
