Have a friend who feels bad about his or her body? Exploit that weakness to comic and/or devasting effect with the latest “Send a personalized message” phone gimmick, this one courtesy of the FX series Nip/Tuck. You pick the part of your friend’s body that needs some work (breasts, butt, calves, ears), and doctors Sean McNamara and Christian Troy will handle the rest in a quick, traumatic phone call. The terms and conditions ask you to “please use your best judgment and be respectful of other individuals.” Wink wink, nudge nudge. The show returns for its fifth season tonight.
