Hello folks, let’s chat…Here’s something interesting for you. Many British citizens are resorting to Do It Yourself Dentistry. DYI Dentistry. Yes. Really. Reports are that 250,000 DIY cavity-filling kits are being purchased in jolly old England every year, under the ingenious advertising slogan, “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?”
Ok, I’m joking about the ad but those funny Brits really are into DIY Dentistry. Apparently they’re trying to avoid the long waiting lists and high fees associated with their socialized medicine. I’m glad we don’t have to worry about that! Oh. Yeah.
Well, anyway, I’m not necessarily blaming the following story on the Brits, but we all know these things have a way of making their way across the big pond… Apparently, a professional wrestler living in Tampa FL has recently employed his own unusual method of DYI Dentistry, using his son as the test case. Robert Abercrombie, aka Rob Venomous, yanked a loose tooth out of his eight-year-old child’s head by tying one end of a string to the tooth and another to his Chevy Camero. Daddy Venomous hit the gas and VOILA! Of course, he videoed it. And of course it’s gone viral.
Daddy Venomous explained his behavior by saying his son was excited about the idea and that it went very smoothly. To make matters worse Mama Venomous was apparently filming the incident. Thanks for nothing, Mommy Dearest.
I would just like it noted that my sisters and I can be eternally grateful our dear Papa didn’t hear about DIY Dentistry back when we were growing up on Bull Run Road. As it was, he fancied himself something of a doctor. I once walked around with a broken arm for two weeks because I could still wiggle my fingers. I’m not sure where Papa studied, but he held to the theory that as long as the parts are moving, it’s all good.
Okay, so I’m just having a little fun with Papa, y’all. There’s no way he would’ve used a Chevy Camero to pull our teeth out! Papa’s a Ford man. Always has been.
