Jaded By Generations Of Poor Dental Hygiene, Brits Amazed By Tiger Woods’ Smile

Show me that smile again. (Show me that smile)
Don’t waste another minute on your cryin’.
We’re nowhere near the end (nowhere near)

In retrospect, in light of everything, perhaps a song entitled “As Long As We Got Each Other” isn’t the best choice to use in a post about Tiger Woods, but one thing about the groundbreaking television show is definitely apropos:

Boner (may the tortured soul of Andrew Koenig finally be at peace).

Anyhoo, apparently an intrepid interviewer for the British rag The Sun who participated in a pre-British Open press conference with Tiger Woods earlier this week is quite proud of himself for how he shamed the super cereal golfer into giving the ghastly-teeth-challenged Brits a glimpse of his row of pearly whites, hence the article title of “How The Sun shamed shamed Tiger into giving us a smile.”

Here’s how:

THE SUN shamed Tiger Woods into smiling and signing autographs at St Andrews yesterday after taking him to task for failing to embrace golf fans.

I see. Well done, The Sun. But next time, instead of heaping scorn upon a person just to see what a healthy set of teeth look like,  just spring for some Hedley & Wyche and even you Brits, with your gap-toothed, tartar and plaque-ridden mouths could actually enjoy your own damn smiles.

(Of course, the Hedley & Wyche reference was obligatory, so don’t give me that look)
