UK Woman Gives 7-Year-Old Daughter ‘Plastic Surgery Voucher’ For Christmas

Today, in Reasons People Hate The Western World, we learned that Sarah Burge–the so-called “Human Barbie” (or, the lesser one, as we like to think)–courted publicity yet again in an extremely sad, gross way by giving her seven-year-old daughter Poppy Burge a voucher for £7,000 worth of plastic surgery as a Christmas gift. Burge explained:

“I put the voucher in her stocking – there’s nothing wrong with that. She asks for surgery all the time. She wants to look good and lipo is one of those procedures that will always come in handy. [...] I see these vouchers as investing in her future – like saving money for her education*.” [tagbox tag="plastic-surgery"]

We first learned of Burge when she bragged to the press about giving Poppy a voucher for future breast augmentation as a gift for her seventh birthday. Before that, Burge copped to giving Poppy pole-dancing lessons.

Whenever stories like this crop up–the whole Botox Mom debacle springs to mind–many readers are quick to condemn these parents and insist their children should be taken away. Although we don’t think you can glean a complete picture of one’s parenting skills from a tabloid story, we can reasonably conclude that Sarah Burge has no problem exploiting her child for fame. Which sounds, coincidentally, like horrible parenting.

Burge has spent over £500,000 on plastic surgery for herself. Unfortunately, that won’t keep generating headlines on its own, which is why we should prep for more stories just like this one.

    If I’d had 500,000 lbs. of surgery, I’d want to look better than that. And poor daughter. Honey, you’re beautiful just the way you are!

    As sad as it is, all I’m able to ponder is; Human “Barbie” gets ton of surgeries to look like a doll but neglects the large attention attracting squidward like schnoz in the middle of her face… I’m horrible I know. )= I’m slightly convinced if a nose job had been her first surgery all the others wouldnt have happened and she wouldnt be giving her daughter a lip voucher at 7, annnnnd now I’m horrible x2.
