BLINDED BY THE TEETH


OK...
Here I go again.
Did you watch the V.P. debate last night?
I did…
And within minutes…
I had to run and get my sunglasses.
If you watched the debate…
You know why.
Poor Joe Biden was criticized for smiling…
But there’s nothing wrong with Joe’s smile…
It’s his teeth. Specifically the veneers.
Too white. Too bright. Too unnatural, and…
Too spooky!
And I’ve seen these spooky white teeth before…
In Hollywood
In the mouths of stars.
I’m not against white teeth…
I’ve had mine whitened professionally…
But only to their original color.
When white teeth glow in the dark…
And glare under stage lighting…
Enough to make TV viewers squint…
I say enough dentists!
Stop making your patients look ridiculous.
And plastic surgeons? You’re also guilty…
You go too far.
In my humble opinion…
Joe has that pinched and pulled look…
Where was his adversary to say…
“OK, nip and tuck Joe, but not too much!”
There’s a Nissan commercial running on TV now…
That shows a man who…
Every time he’ attempts to do something ‘over the top’…
A car horn honks, letting him know—enough!
Hmm?
I see some job creation here—horn honkers…
They’d be in plastic surgeons and dentists offices…
And when the doc or dent suggests a procedure…
That will make the patient look ridiculous….
The horn honker honks the horn!
So?
Did you watch the debate?
Were you blinded by the dental light?
And here's the horn honking Nissan commercial for reference.


Always, Em-Musing

Glowing teeth! Sorry, I didn't notice. They did match his overall paleness though. Could've used that car horn during the debate, that's for sure.

I was too busy watching the annoying eye rolls.

Some people go way overboard with the surgeries and botox. They don't even look real anymore.

I agree with you on the teeth whitening and plastic surgery.

I didn't watch, but I truly enjoyed the Twitter commentary, and there were, indeed, many mentions of the teeth.

Love that honking commercial! (I noticed the teeth too. Way too white.)

Elana Johnson said...

LOL! This is too funny. I didn't watch because I had critique group, but I'm wishing I did!

Carol Kilgore said...

Didn't watch - I was at Police Academy. But I totally agree about places that need horn honkers!

I'm avoiding the debates. We're bombarded by ads in Ohio. I can't take any more politics. But your post reminded me of that "Friends" episode where the brother whitened his teeth and they glowed in the dark.
