Putting your money where someone's mouth was

Welcome to this week's Thursday News of the Absurd Will Someone Please Write This Book Inspirational Moment (TNoftheAWSPWTBIM).

From YahooNews:

Man claims he found 10 human teeth in new wallet

Apparently, some guy bought a wallet, unzipped the change compartment, and found ten human teeth, one of which had a filling.

Two things you should know when explaining this to me:

1. Walmart "believes this was an 'isolated incident'."* (Um, they're not sure? There might be other wallets full of teeth out there?)

2. They were adult teeth, so the tooth fairy was not involved.

So tell me: what happened?

And if that doesn't inspire you, can you explain why this woman needed McNuggets so darn bad?

*Again, how to punctuate that??

Maybe the person who inspected the wallet before it went to Walmart, sneezed real hard and his teeth fell out...he looked all around, but couldn't find them...he never thought about the wallet, and put it in the box to be shipped to Walmart and sold... ????

How funny about the woman & McDonalds...I heard about this yesterday and I thought of you right away...grin...

Brenda, I see it. I was thinking the wallet was stuck shut and someone tried to teeth it open?

I am so glad bizarre news makes you think of me!

Geez, it's like pulling teeth to get a respectable wallet at Walmart!

Gives new meaning to "put your money where your mouth is."

Jacqui said...

Kelly, ha!

Paul, my thoughts exactly.

Ha! That's what I get for reading and trying to write at ten to midnight. I didn't even realize that was the title of your post.

Those teeth in a wallet will keep me up for some time tonight...

As for the McNuggets woman, I'm guessing she's in the early stages of pregnancy and can't control herself, poor thing. I myself was pretty desperate for pad Thai in my first trimester.

Paul, don't be red. Someday I'll blog about trying to join Twitter at midnight...

Mary, creepy isn't it? And for me it was donuts. I swear Tinkerbell is 5% donut, based on my pregnancy diet. Captain Destructo, in contrast, is 25% bacon and avocado.
