Washboard abs, previously available only through a diet of one grape a day plus forty billion situps at night, are now available through convenient day surgery. However, you have to be in fairly good shape already in order to get this, which makes us wonder if it's all worth it. When we want our body modification, we want it now.

Plus, there's the whole cost issue. 4k to 7k, or this for a mere $20.71? Or you could pick up a Sharpie for about $1.50 and just draw the lines on yourself. Either way, you do the math.


If men start going through with this upgrade, you have to wonder... will women start checking out the gut and asking their friends, "Hey, see that hottie the bar? Think they're fake?"

Only time will tell.
