Bloodyvostock - Does Russian wannabe president Vladimir Putin's plastic surgeon really hate him enough to stitch him up like former French art dealer's wife Jocelyne Wildenstein?
The Kremlin rumor mill today said 'maybe' as hideous pix of a surgically revamped Putin continued to flood the media prompting comparison to the the woman dubbed 'Bride of Wildenstein' for her excessive facelifts.
Industry insiders reckon surgeons must have pumped Putin's face with recycled body fat and other 'organic' fillers to produce that chubby-cheeked look so beloved by er, admirers of altar boys, inter alia.
A jolly new smile was also made possible by astute use of the nip and tick scalpel and nearly 30 hours of cosmetic dentistry.
The astonishing results have been hailed an overwhelming success despite widespread fears 'someone put Putin up to it' as a cynical 'dare'.
Ruling out Putin's estranged - possibly even divorced - wife Ludmilla and his rumored top-squeeze Alia Kabaeva that just leaves the KGB style division as top suspects behind the makeover.
"Someone should give Vlad a mirror," LA FagHagSlagMag's Russian editor commented today, "this new gargoyle look's scaring off the voters."
