you'd have to have dentists in the country, before it could be considered a terrible job there.

Ah, dentistry jokes. How they never grow stale or tired.
Why, they're almost as funny and accurate as those "all americans are fatass, gun wielding fundamentalist redneck racists" comedy.

Hilarious.

At least these people are out earning an honest buck rather than sitting around on the dole. I can think of several high paying jobs that suck as bad as these do.

That is the longest article I've ever seen in The Sun.
 
2006-11-28 02:46:54 AM
The "some reason" is that in the UK dentists can expect to be paid upwards of £30-40K per annum quite readily. In many cases, double that.


\sure beats shovelling shiat.

I don't know about that zoo keepers thing. Walking the dingos looked pretty fun the last time I saw a couple of keepers doing it.

Yeah, but if they don't stop doing that, they could go blind.

Exactly, these people take the jobs that immigrants won't do. The sole justification for immigration must be that Britain has a surplus of government benefits and tax payer money they need to give away.

Yers, we all have bad teeth, we got you. Why's no-one ever mentioned this before?

Gee I wonder if its something to do with the 50K+ a year dentists make.

Har har har, Burgers! Nice one.

I dunno people, I know Brits who have perfect teeth (we even have whitening toohpaste now) and I know Yanks who aren't greedy burger-noshing, SUV driving, mega-church attending, lazy barstewards with high blood-pressure. I don't suppose we could leave the cliches alone for more than five minutes?

Thought not.

"OK, I get it- I've got bad teeth!"

Hey if you guys can make the same joke over and over again then so can I.

Of course, for this to work, it relies on you knowing that I have posted this before, but as Stewart Lee says, "I will not be held responsible for your ignorance".

Buzzcocks is still bloody funny, seconded.

Way to lose the Americans though. "Simon who?"...

Wow, so that's what happened to Sebastian. He used to deal speed in the 80's. I'd have to say he was one of the nicest, goth/ninja goofballs around. If anybody was in London clubs/gigs in the 80s-90s imagine him with black and red mohawk extensions.
So now he's shovelling poop at the zoo. I'd have to say that's a much better fate than many of our peers.
Hoorah for Sebastian!

Sadly, after the adoption of nationwide dental care the Brits typically have better teeth than in the US.

I bet the writer of that article didn't expect it to cause a British vs. American flamewar.

"I bet the writer of that article didn't expect it to cause a British vs. American flamewar"

I bet the submitter did.

"Sadly, after the adoption of nationwide dental care the Brits typically have better teeth than in the US"

Healthier, maybe. Straighter? I don't think so. Unless you're including all the illegal immigrants, yokels and rednecks. US has had affordable 'cosmetic' dentistry a lot longer than we have (not even affordable now!)

HOSPITAL laundry worker Ralph El Turk was paid 18 pence an hour extra to work with dirty bedding.

18 pence an hour? When was this? 1911?

We are so not close minded son. We're very open to the idea that we're number one. So sit back, enjoy some lutefisk, and bask in the glow of the American century.

Or was that the last century? Ah well, I gotta dash, ma' gun needs cleanin'.

In college I knew a guy who took a job at a peep show - yessir, JIZZMOPPER! $15 an hour to bleach the floors and walls twice a day, and steam clean the door knobs and slots in the windows. It isn't all about the jizz, fellas - don't forget that drunks mistake those booths for public toilets :D
