You Can’t Handle The Tooth

No wonder I wasn’t gaining any weight, all the food I was jamming into my mouth was falling straight into that hole. That crown was seven years old and still going strong when the tooth was finally pulled from my head. That’s serious Canadian craftsmanship right there.

Technical Stuff: I only took one shot because I still wasn’t using my multiple exposure option, and I made sure to have the camera set on “center-zone”… but somehow I missed setting the focus on that ginormous piece of decomposing bone and ceramic. Generally when I take closeups with my camera set on “multi-focus” it focuses on whatever random crap it first sees. But when I’m on “center-focus” I have to look at the screen before I shoot so I can have an idea what’s in the centre… which is almost never a possibility.

The dentist wanted to clean the blood off before I took the shot… fool. That’s not actually a dick poking out from between the four legs of that monster. It’s a giant bag of pus. This is the coolest photo ever.

    Vivian would like to know how that got “rotten”-she says it’s because you aren’t brushing your teeth. :P

    Vivian’s mostly right, tell her it’s very important to floss at least once every day and she should be all right…

    Actually this could help you with your student food budgeting… think of this photo as an appetite suppressant. Just print off a copy and carry it in your bag, then whenever you start thinking you’re hungry just take a look at my giant sack of pus.

    You’re welcome.

    I was definitely the only person in the room smiling. Weird how it didn’t occur to me until recently what movie this reminds me of: “…is it safe?”

  7. Stiletto says:

    F*ck. That is disgusting. What is next, bloody tampons? lol

  8. Stiletto says:

    Oh, and I am thanking God right now for perfect teeth!

  9. Gabriel says:

    …a bloody tampon! That’d be sweet… if only my girlfriend wasn’t pregnant. Damn. It’ll have to wait until next February, but I can send you an email notification when I post it.
