I didn't really blog about this last week because it's little more than a "news of the weird" story, but you probably heard about it. There's a Chinese author who is apparently going to have plastic surgery to look like William Shakespeare. The folks at Reduced Shakespeare beat me to the obvious "Yes but what portrait?!" joke so I'll give them credit :)
What do you think? I suppose people have done crazier things for their art. Interesting that it's a writer of words choosing to resculpt himself. Bit of a medium switch for him.
I suppose it beats Botoxing your face into an expressionless mask, like many folks do. Ladies. Seriously. If you raise your eyebrows and your forehead doesn't move, you've done too much.
