Chinese gov't promotes better way to smile

Government officials in China are promoting a new technique for helping employees improve their smiles: chopsticks.

In a course hosted by the Dalian Port Inspection Station in the Liaoning province of northeastern China, customs officers were taught a technique for how to put forth their best smile, according to an article on the "Behind the Wall" blog by NBC News.

In the "How to Smile" course, the officers placed a chopstick between their teeth to perfect their smiles, the story noted. A traditional Chinese adage states that women of true beauty do not reveal their teeth when smiling, so the method reportedly helps them show their teeth when they smile.
