Better a Simple Smile than a Smiling Simpleton

Up to the last few decades and during the whole of the second half of the 20th century, Europeans looked on in wonder at the good oral health and, above all, perfectly straight teeth of their North American cousins. Democratization together with strict training in the use of toothpaste and toothbrush has enabled many to rediscover a full-toothed smile. However, Americans still have healthier gums than the rest of the planet, with their jaws all too often full of broken teeth, thanks to an almost military secret: the systematic addition of fluoride to American tap water. Nonetheless, it can be seen that this practice, although providing teeth better than nature can offer, has a tendency to turn out future idiots.

While President Trump was very probably elected thanks to hidden digital machinations, we must not play down the effects of the long and constant fluoridation of brains over all these decades … It is sad to note that these days it seems infinitely preferable just to look less moronic, thanks to the miracles of mass photogenicity, and that the time is long gone when a smile that might have looked natural and radically out of conformity with aesthetic rules was not necessarily a sign of stupidity

(non-retouched photos of John Bonham, Freddie Mercury, Amy Winehouse, Paul McCartney and Donald Trump’s most beautiful smile).
