Ooh, scary! I'd hate to have us ALL walking around with flawless skin! That would sort of defeat the purpose, wouldn't it?

See? I'm not overly paranoid. I'm smart. And I know that some people aren't. Some of those who aren't so smart just happen to be medical professionals. This is why I have to drive an hour and a half to get to a competent, experienced, cautious, respectful and SMART dentist. I think I'm going to post a pic of my pearly whites in my sidebar. :-) I might not still have them if I weren't always on the lookout for idiots wearing scrubs. This turned into a rant, didn't it? Sorry.

From Canadian comic Derek Edwards:

"I was driving along and an ad came on the radio: "Considering laser eye surgery? Come to the experts!""

I thought "Well, sure. You'd want an expert for that. At the very least, you should lean towards an avid hobbyist."

"You never hear an ad that says "Thinking of laser surgery? Come on down to Doug's Pupil Hut. Oh, sure, we may not be "experts" ... but dammit, we try our very best.""
