Last summer, as you no doubt do not recall, both Madonna and Angelina Jolie were criticized for having veiny hands. A concerned plastic surgeon explained to the Daily Mail that wrinkled, veiny mitts are a hallmark of the aging process, noting that babies, by contrast, "have podgy hands." Well, it was only a matter of time: Now, for 1,300 pounds (about $2,600) you can have a doctor reel those bulgy veins right on out. Yep. I'm pretty sure Jezebel put it best: "Shrimp should be de-veined. Not hands."
