I can’t watch the video right now but I’m still going to say NICE TEETH!!!

(Mostly because . . . well . . . mostly because I just like saying nice teeth.)

Not many people know this but that also happened to Winston Churchill, only it was with his glass eye.

Next time, use Polident.

I admit this happens to me to...but not with my teeth.

When I was a tot my nana removed her teeth right in front of me. I was deeply impressed. I asked her how she did it. She said it was a secret then she did it again and laughed at my reaction. I went around asking everybody if they could remove their teeth. Few could. Nobody would reveal how it was done. Years elapsed with me pulling on my teeth searching for the secret lever that would disengage the whole set. I thought it was something like the door behind the bookshelf in the castle library where you pulled on the sconce and the door swung open. Finally, finally someone explained to me that I had to have all my real teeth pulled before fake ones could be provided and even then it still seemed like a good idea. Why not just pull them all and get an excellent replacement? A dental hygenist had to carefully explain to me why false teeth are the big fail.

What is it with British Prime Ministers and glass eyes anyway?

EDH said...

He seemed to have an instant good humor about it, followed by a sinking embarrassment.

Immediately I liked this guy.

If Alpha were here, he would rage against making fun of the dentice challenged.

Freaky bug-eye people on YouTube.

South Korean political assemblies are something to watch. They can turn into major dust-ups really quick. I'll bet that after this guy jammed his teeth back in, it was seen as an offense to the opposition and a brawl began.

Nice Teeth is a Bernard McGuirk line.

If Alpha were here he'd assert that a right-wing Glen Beck fanatic switched this guy's Polident with toothpaste...

EDH said...

Chip,

A black guy whose eyes bug-out has been a staple of slap-stick comedy from the Three Stooges to Caddyshack. (Video at @ 1:05.)

I always thought it was motivated by a silly racial stereotype.

Maybe it's simply a genetic trait specific to African Americans?

Jeremy would say it is unAmerican to make fun of people whole have lost denture control.

Penny said...

Losing your teeth is a common dream, I am told. I have to tell you that I was mighty happy to hear that, since it was surely common to me, and let me tell you...this was more my nightmare... until I woke up, happy to find them just where I left them when I went to sleep. IN MY MOUTH!

No one else out there has these nightmares?

quickwatson said...

After I got my two front teeth broken (not in a fight but through mindless pebble throwing one summer day at the beach), I had a recurring dream for quite a few years that I was at the bottom of an escalator and saw my two front teeth come down on one of the steps.

I didn't know it was common to have teeth (or lack thereof) dreams, so am happy to know this.

EDH said...

I just realized why I liked this guy's demeanor!

He reminds me of Milhouse van Houten!

Jason (the commenter) said...

There's nothing sexier than a guy who can take out his teeth.

Ah, poor guy.

Being human is bad enough, but add age and prosthetics and the fun really begins. The chances for embarrassment are numerous and only expand with time.

John Mortimer once wrote "No one should grow old who isn't ready to appear ridiculous."

This is why penguins head off alone toward the distant mountains.
