I must be missing the point here as it's almost impossible for me to believe, or understand what this image is all about. Is it possible this is supposed to be some kind of a strange joke regarding the portrayal of "youth?" If so, I must be completely missing the humor not to mention the point. It's this kind of stuff that makes me question whether my membership in the Nikonians isn't a mistake. I mean, what's going on here?

I like it as it's a plug for the old, ugly people in the world. Remember that most of us will look that way when we are old.
Look closely at each wrinkle and imagine what it took to get there.
I'm 80 so I've been thru alot of time, experiences and aspects of life that nobody would want. I'm not going to list them, but use your imagination.

Give this handsome man some praise, it makes me feel good and that's the gerneral idea. I like the idea and I'm sure the gentleman in the pic enjoyed it to.
