Fish Pedicures???

Fish pedicures are gaining popularity near the nation's capital after an Alexandria, Va., spa began offering them a few months ago. Here a customer has her toes nibbled on by a type of carp called garra rufa, or doctor fish, during a treatment at Yvonne Hair and Nails salon. The fish supposedly suck the dead skin off your feet.
How appetizing.
Okay... Seriously?? OMG... No. Just the idea of experiencing this gets me all skeeved out. Ick.
I shudder at what they must be charging for such a creepy treatment.

I think there's something really fishy about a person who would subject themselves to this "treatment". Fishy... LOL I made myself laugh.
