America is officially 237 years old, and homegirl looks better than all of us. While Miami is pumped full of silicone and Botox, skin stretched like crime scene tape, butt so big she needs a cement truck just to get outside, the good old U.S. of A. is aging gracefully.
Shame, shame, shame.
See, if anything can show us that natural beauty is the best route of aestheticism, it's America. We may have built her up and enhanced her just a little here and there, but her tiny nips and tucks will never stand up to Miami, whose residents look more like walking plastic surgery textbooks.
