You there in the back. Quit snickering, there's nothing humerus about this.

With the advancements happening nowadays in the field of rhinoplasty, almost anyone can forestall the visual effects of aging by merely decreasing the depth of their pockets, but no matter how professional the surgeon or the skill with which they perform the pocket-ectomy there is still one area of the human body by which, I guarantee, I can guess your approximate age by.
Yep. You guessed it from the title, the humble elbow.

It's flexing and scrunching continue un-abated throughout one's life and I find it easier to tell a persons age by this one body part more than any other, so why is it the last frontier in augmentative vanitization?

Elbow tucks.
This fall, long sleeves are out.

       [2 fries] has touched on a very personal subject with me, any snickering will not go unpunished. My elbows make me look like a 51 year old woman...who has applied a lot of elbow grease (sigh)

       Idoit too, sometimes. Well, only once - Ididit Sept 4th last year and we've been happy ever after. <snickering increases in intensity> I meant I got married, you idoits.

       I've seen television shows about plastic surgery done to remove excess skin (including the back of the upper arm) after massive weight loss. I imagine it's been done for less significant cases.

       'Her Oof Might' makes another significant stand. And winds up with egg-on-face syndrome.
