This was sent to me by a Dog & Pony Show reader the other day. No one said anything? Really?

This is hilarious –¬†Eric Spiegelman captured photos of all the dentists in his SoCal area who use smiling, happy teeth in their logo or on their signage. Can we all agree this must stop?

MySpace new logo, meet Gap new logo. Welcome to the race to the bottom of public opinion.
