Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Seems like some people would go to any length to get cosmetic surgery done at a low price. Police in Canada, believe that this includes going to an unlicensed teenage doctor.
Toronto Police announced that they arrested a teenager who ran an unlicensed medical clinic. According to the police report, 19-year-old Jingyi "Kitty" Wang advertised her services, offering cosmetic surgical procedures under the name "Dr. Kitty."
A woman who responded to the advertisement was invited to the basement of a home, where "Dr. Kitty" performed a "face-filler" procedure to smooth out wrinkles. Within a few weeks, the woman developed an infection and had to seek medical help from a licensed plastic surgeon in Toronto.
The victim required corrective surgery and reported Dr. Kitty to police. Police arrested Wang on charges of aggravated assault.
Investigators believe there may be other victims and are urging those people to contact them.

A New York hotel announced the return of one of its most famous limited-time menu items -- a gold-topped bagel with a $1,000 price tag. The Westin New York hotel in Times Square announced the $1,000 bagel, which had a limited run in 2007, is making a return to the hotel after multiple requests. The pricey bagel's toppings include goji berry infused Riesling jelly, gold leaves and Alba white truffle cream cheese. "Pound for pound, the white truffle is the second most expensive food in the world, next to caviar," the hotel said. The hefty price tag includes tax and gratuity, the hotel said. All proceeds from sales of the bagels will be donated to the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. The bagels will only be available from Nov. 1 until Dec. 15, and interested guests are being instructed to order their decadent breakfast foods 24 hours in advance.

A Swedish transport company has given in to the will of the people by officially naming a new train Trainy McTrainface after a public vote. Transport company MTR Express, which earlier this year asked readers of Swedish newspaper Metro to vote on a name for the train, said 49 percent of the vote went to "Trainy McTrainface," making it the top choice. Officials with MTR Express said they were resolved to abide by the public's decision, in part to avoid the sort of disappointment that resulted when a British polar research ship was not named Boaty McBoatface despite winning a public poll. "We saw pretty quickly that Trainy McTrainface was in the lead and the popular option. There was a bit of international attention on the vote, and I imagine that some people were quite delighted to get some revenge for the Boaty McBoatface thing," MTR Express marketing chief Per Nasfi said.

I thought that was nice of the girls; to leave a resume in case the client liked their work. The pepper spray in the face was a nice touch. This is why women have a hard time getting ahead in the workplace.
I find it hard to completely condemn that Romanian guy in Paris. If I knew a midget who was willing to get zipped up inside a suitcase I might be tempted to try something similar. Unfortunately, Romanian midgets aren't that easy to come by!
