Facials, So To Speak

I just read the latest New York magazine on the subway and came this short piece on Spermine facials.  Though Spermine is said to be an antioxidant isolated from sperm, it seems to be harvested from, yuck, foreskins.  I'm a bit confused but resist further research.  

Even more peculiar is this quote in the magazine by comedian Joy Behar.  In response to, "Are you artistically talented?" Ms. Behar says one of the most eccentric things I've ever read:
"I used to make paper-mache puppets of all my relatives during my first depression-- you know, like when I was first married.  I even put mink stoles on them and everything."

Is she joking?  I truly hope she is not.
