Well, if I recall correctly, for some people gauges (Those things that stretch out your earlobes) are a cultural thing. So, it's not necessarily something that will make sense to you, and doesn't really matter if it makes sense to anybody but them.

For somebody who it isn't a cultural thing for...yeah, it doesn't make much sense at all.
