WTF is a "Gummi Bear implant"?!

I wonder how MyFreeImplats.com was started:
MyFreeImplants.com started in early 2005 when a bunch of friends were attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas.

So can I just claim I want bigger boobs/gummi bears/whatever, and keep the money? I couldn't find an answer to this on the site. I can fake the before and after photos with the camera angle... or just stick gummi bears all over myself.

This would have used to make me sad. Now I just blink and move on.

puke & cry, I'm afraid to look at what your other posts are.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry that something like this exists in the year 2007.

Didn't Howard Stern used to do this on the air?

(Have three women beg, competition-like, for fake boobs, not actually perform the procedure?)

Best thing about that site? The pervasive references to all of the females as "ladies."
posted by nerdcore at 4:12 PM on May 24, 2007


Actually, I think of this also, just because I saw it a couple days ago and it's catchy.

MyFreeImplants.com is the first website of its kind to harness the global power of the Internet to service the unique needs and desires of its members.

I thought Metafilter was first?

No, really, this is sick but brilliant. I wonder if they have a public service site where poor kids with cleft palates can plead for money. I just might donate....

What someone should really do is find a way to match up women who want breast reductions with women who want implants. Waste not, want not.

My implants (with apologies to Kelis)

My implants bring all the boys to the yard
And they're like,
"Those titties are hard",
Damn right! Like a barrel of lard,
You can touch them,
If you've got your credit card,

My implants bring all the boys to the yard,
And I'm like,
"Man, these titties are hard"
Men are drooling, like a low-grade 'tard,
But don't look too close,
'Cause these things are badly scarred,
That's the price you pay to join the avant garde

I know you want to,
Touch the things that were made for me,
What the guys go crazy for,
I'm not a twenty dollar whore,
I'd let you touch but they're still sore.

Along with your bio you can upload an unlimited number of pictures of yourself. These pictures are one of the key components towards achieving your goals.

This is just creepy.

I don't know if it's eponysterical anymore when puke & cry posts something gross. I've come to expect (and relish) it... it's more like eponypropriate.

Uh, seriously. Is this the breast we can do?
posted by Rawhide at 5:26 PM on May 24, 2007


yohko: no. The site hooks you up with one of their doctors.

This makes me cry too, partially because I can easily picture my sister thinking this is the solution.
posted by artifarce at 5:29 PM on May 24, 2007


Wow. That's really twisted and tacky. And way crass.

I guess a fool and his money are soon parted. What do you need to be successful here? A really cute, but flat girl?

Where are all the men who dig small breasted women? They could set up competitive bidding for and against the boob job and double the take.

Man oh man. Our culture is on the wrong track.

puke & cry writes 'Implants. Every time I think of implants I can only think of this.'

Nice to see that she's gone to the trouble of having a Brazilian done.

There's nothing worse than spotting a hot chick like that on the beach, only to be put off by the sight of spiders crawling along her bikini line,
posted by PeterMcDermott at 5:34 PM on May 24, 2007


The homepage really needs a more catchy design to make this into a real web phenomenon.

I'm thinking of something like that million dollar homepage, but with lots of little pictures of boobs. To donate, you just click on a boob & $1 goes to that recipient. As the donations rack up, the boobs become bigger. In this way, you can see tangible evidence of your money at work, and feel the satisfaction of making a difference in the world.

I want to see the before & after photos. Gotta check the ROI, y'know..
posted by drstein at 5:51 PM on May 24, 2007


Every time I think of implants I think of "Weird Science". Or, rather, I think of the line "Anything bigger than a handful, you're risking a sprained thumb".

I'm not [BREASTIST], just sayin'. It's getting pretty annoying. Woe me.

Wonder how low the self-esteem is of the girl who has only raised $87 when the others are over a thousand? Because I doubt it was high when she signed up in the first place.

yohko: no. The site hooks you up with one of their doctors.

Actually no, the FAQ says you can choose whatever doctor you want. No idea how they send payment though.

What are you talking about, Alvy? They just use traditional methods that we in the West have forgotten, thanks to our mollycoddling fancy-arse technology. For example, in Papua New Guinea, they slit themselves just under the armpits with flint knives & shove half a coconut in each side.

shove half a coconut in each side

Is this what they mean when they say a girl has a husk-y build?

Is there a surgical procedure to (re)turn breasts to circa 25 years post partum instead of implants that make them look like they were drawn by 12.5 year old Tokyo manga street artists?

In the interests of equality, I'm about to start a website where men who are seeking penile enhancement surgery can post pictures of themselves and their inadequate members, in the hope that desperate and lonely women will be inclined to post a contribution if they feel the person involved is worthy of their donation.

Our first member here on www.investing-in-cock.com is our very own ColdChef, who worries that his penis is too short because he's 'never hit bottom'.

Ladies, you *know* how important it is for a man to be hitting the bottom and working the sides, bending you over like a pretzel, and letting you feel the heat in his penis. A man just can't do that if he's worried that he's never hit the bottom.

Just a mere $5000 can send ColdChef along to Dr. E. Douglas Whitehead for phalloplasty. So send us some money as an act of solidarity with your sisters, because one day, some poor needy woman will be feeling it as ColdChef finally starts hitting the bottom and working the sides.

(Note: 99% of all contributions go towards the upkeep of www.investing-in-cock.com, but special one-on-one appointments with our boys can be arranged, during which the whole of your 'gift' (minus referral fee of $250, payable up front) will go directly to the small penised man of your choice.)

So, um, PinkSuperhero, is this supposed to be a hint or something?

"I don't know whether to laugh or cry that something like this exists in the year 2007."

I know! It doesn't have a distributed social network, it's not in beta, I don't see any gradients, and it doesn't even look like there's any browser-native AJAX webapps embedded!
