Fish Pedicures

I have no idea how I found this, but apparently one of the new trends in Washington D.C. is "fish pedicures." These little fish eat dead skin, but they don't have teeth so it doesn't hurt. I'm really not sure how I feel about this new phenomenon. I mean, I have been searching for a way to get rid of my calluses for a long time, but I don't know that I would want a swarm of little fish to do that. And also, is it humane? Fish being dumped in and out of "foot baths" all day. They must eat something else in the wild. How could dead skin fill their nutritional needs?
This just weirds me out a bit.

Here is the article....
