Pic of the Week: A Turn for the Uglier

Whenever people equate beauty with perfection I scoff.  If we adjusted all the faces or bodies of people we deem beautiful to be perfect, I bet we’d all be disappointed.  Moreover, when I hear about the supposed “torture” people endure to be perfect, I have to point to the growing number of cases I come across of people trying to look imperfect, as evidenced in the pic above from Tokyo above.   Girls are actually trying to make their teeth look funny!
