Consensus Report: Teeth

Has anybody noticed the high percentage of dentists in the Iraqi blogosphere. Ays from Iraq at a glance is a dentist, so is Zeyad from HealingIraq. Two of the brothers posting on Iraq The model are dentists as well. What's up with that?

Is there maybe something about being a dentist that makes somebody want to blog as well. You know how dentists always talk with you when you can't answer back because your mouth is open and you are in pain? Perhaps all dentists like a captive audience.

Or maybe it is an Iraqi conspiracy to get people in the west to brush their teeth three times a day. There might be subliminal messages in hidden in their posts.

Which begs the question:
How many dentists does it take to change a light bulb in Iraq?
Non, why bother the electricity is hardly on.

Maybe the reason those dentist bloggers always try to be so 'optimistic' is because they spend most of their days looking down in the mouth. Or maybe their lives are empty and their blogs are a way of filling the cavity? Or could it be that they're trying to build a bridge? Perhaps the pair that are going to stand for election will try to bring back the monarchy and then one of them can crown the other? Oh well, perhaps we'll never get to the root of it so I'll stop now before I hit a nerve and get into a scrape.

Cap that.

Ferid the Great, Perhaps you can shed some light on this phenomena. Do they teach blogging 101 in dentistry school in Iraq as a required course?

They are becoming dentists because there is good money in it. Have you noticed the price of care lately? It's outrageous! And, unlike being a doctor where you will likely be on-call at all hours, dentists rarely have to do that. There also isn't the requirement of residency to consider in most cases. Besides, who will take care of all of those georgeous Iraqi smiles? Hehehe!

"How many dentists does it take to change a light bulb in Iraq? None, why bother the electricity is hardly on."

Heh, heh, heh! Good one. But maybe only people in Baghdad would get the joke. My understanding is that the electricity in Basrah and other parts of southern (and perhaps northern?) Iraq is actually on more often than it was during Saddam Hussein's time.

And I also think that there are many more personal/neighborhood generators in Iraq than there were only a year-and-a-half ago.
