    If you're going to be a dentist in the South, then you certainly don't want to discard your accent. It's a mark of humility in a profession where pain is par for the course.

    It's also an accent loathed by so many that some entomologist once claimed it was originally caused by some southerners "swallowin' some varmit critters."

    Although that is initially a pathetic claim, it is more authentic than "Well, I'm sorry you think I sound really whiny all of the time." :eek:
