Letters Opening Sun's Pandora's Box

Scott McNealy's PhotoShopped chops continue to alarm readers. He looks nothing like this in real life, we must stress, but an overzealous graphic artist has blessed Sun's CEO with dentistry capable of Shock and Awe.

Reader Mike Whittaker asks if Laurie Anderson provided an inspiration. Well, compare and contrast. David Shephard sends us another possible inspiration. (That's Conrad Poohs from Monty Python).

Readers have a broader message for the boardrooms and image-makers of the USA:-


 Bravo!

It raises my spirits to finally see someone speaking out against the 'pearly white' elite based in this country(USA)!

I am a member of the sad outcast folk known as 'normal'. My lips do not recede to extreme distances to display every piece of bone in my head, and you know what, I am proud of that fact!

The ability to reveal your entire set of teeth and gums to me is almost an afront to common decency. I do not want to see that much of the inside of someones body!

Thank you,
 
Daniel Hamilton

[Full disclosure: Naturally, a campaign to downplay such ostentatious dentistry put us British at an advantage. And me at a particular advantage, since my teeth are so bad I can strip paint from a rusty fence simply by grinning. But so be it.]

So yes, please. Stop flashing your codpieces about. ®
