Out of Finland … Oh Mummy!

About 20 years ago a man that we will call Fred disappeared from a small Finnish town. Fred had a somewhat questionable past, but nothing to make someone think he had been murdered. So in 2000 they just declared him a dead Fred, but on Monday they found out exactly how Fred became dead…he got stuck in a chimney of an industrial building. Yes he got stuck and died in 1991. The only good news for Fred was that the chimney was never used, and the good news for rescuers was that he was somehow mummified so everything was intact and his identification was in his wallet.

Out of Illinois … Say Cheese

A 39 year old man was walking through what must have been gangsta territory in Chicago over the weekend because…well, he got shot. He got shot right in the kisser. No lie, the man got shot in the mouth, which of course knocked out his front tooth and what a tooth it must have been. The guy must have Fitz size teeth because while one got knocked out it stopped the freaking bullet from penetrating his head. And here is the best part, after realizing what happened he spit out…spit out not only his tooth, but the bullet!

Out of Britain … Suckkkkker!

linus-thumb Do you or your kid have bucked teeth? Be honest, could you eat peanuts through a picked fence? Well it is likely that you had the dreaded addiction of thumb sucking. Yes thumb sucking causes lots of problems for the beaver teeth and misaligns the jaw! So that is why there is an orthodontist in Britain who has opened the first Thumb Sucking Clinic. Yes, it comes complete with a Thumb Sucking 12 Step Program. No word on the cost, but can you really put a price tag on keeping your child from being called bugs, Bucky, or sniggled tooth?
