Just a Face and a Caption: Depraved Dentist get usage counts

Definitely not a weirdo
The current page image for Depraved Dentist doesn't do a very good job of illustrating the depraved aspect of the trope. As someone who is not familiar with the source material, I just see a man who looks vaguely stern and dentist-like. The caption is similarly meaningless to someone not familiar with the source.

The caption needs to be removed, or at the very least re-potholed, to fix the Nightmare Fuel abuse. I'm voting Keep Until Better Image Suggested on the pic...it doesn't exactly say "depraved" but the overall effect is unsettling, and that's good enough for me.

Weak, but better than no image.

A "man who looks vaguely stern and dentist-like" is okay.

Here's a bigger version of 4.1. 4.4 and 4.5 are pretty good, too.

I agree with Willbyr. Those three do a far better job than the current image at illustrating "depraved."

"Far better"? Seems pretty lateral, maybe even less good.

@4: I don't like the images not showing the actual dentist. Those that do are weaker than the current.

I was actually expecting this trope to have a picture of that guy on it for the Just a Face and a Caption until I followed the link and saw that it was a different guy that I must assume is a depraved dentist...keep until better image suggested.

What about this? It's Doctor Bender from The Fairly OddParents.

Doesn't look very well like a dentist.

11 doesn't look like a dentist at all...I have no idea what that thing in his hand is.

I don't get 11 either. About the only thing to suggest "dentist" is the labcoat, which could just as easily suggest scientist or doctor.

I don't like 6 - To me, while he does look a bit too enthusiastic, he doesn't really come off as malicious.

As for 11, like others said, I have no idea what that thing in his hand is.

[up] Oops - try this one.

Here are some less-JAFAAC images from Little Shop. (I haven't found an image of when he gratuitously kicks a patient in the stomach to get him to say 'AAAH', and he has a misleading facial expression when he clamps a patient's tooth, twists it, and leaves it there to move on to the next patient...)

The one from post 18 doesn't really say dentist. The Little Shop ones are decent though.

Bump for votes. #6 from Little Shop of Horrors is the only one in the green right now.

This one's beyond ready to call. The winner's up, potholed, and tagged, and I've put a few of the others on an Image Links page. I've recycled the old caption; add a new one if you want. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
