It's a Small Face, After All

The other day I gleaned a new insight on beauty from the locals' perspective. 

Students were talking about a peer's girlfriend and mentioned that she was pretty. Then one added something to the effect of:  her face is even a little smaller than his. This comment piqued my interest, and I asked them to elaborate. According to my sources, apparently the aim over here is to have a small face -either naturally or through plastic surgery. The gold standard is for your entire face to fit behind a CD / DVD.

I'm not sure what else to add, except that I'll probably never look at a DVD the same way again.
