that tooth would have had me hiding in the parking lot as a kid.

Ain't that the tooth.

Teeth shouldn't have teeth. Or float menacingly in mid-air. Spooky, spooky tooth.

"Teeth shouldn't have teeth" sounds like some ancient Chinese proverb.

I'll send you my bill at the end of the show. LJFW.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:06pm northguineahills:

I practice mediocre dental hygiene (rarely floss, brush twice a day), and I've never had a cavity. Must be lucky, as everyone in my family have many, many cavities, including my younger brothers.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:06pm Artie:

Just heard the very bad news that the Hi-Tone Cafe in Memphis is closing. Hurts me like a root canal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Just heard that, too. Artie. Ouch.

These dentist songs are boring.

C'mon, folks, you know the drill...
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:11pm Artie:

Play that Neubauten song with the drill solo. That'll liven up the joint.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:14pm Carmichael:

Doug, are you going to play Muhammed Ali Fights Tooth Decay?

now i know why jerry seinfeld thought his dentist and hygienist were swingers.

Considered it but I left it out.

Looks like Pennywise the Dental Clown. Hello! Eating kat's delish dinner, so off the keys as often the case at this hour.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:17pm kat330:

Hey, Doug, and all youse alls! Listening and eating. Love the old blues -- always makes me smile toothily.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:17pm Holly in NC:

Hi Doug and all! Speaking of dentists, this is MOST excellent:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:18pm Doug Schulkind:

Just be sure to brush after, Philo G!

Hey there hi there kat330!

Holly! Just saw that photo on the Facebook this afternoon!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:19pm kat330:

Hi, Holly! Considering your area (among several) for possible relocation. Good dentists in your area? ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:21pm Doug Schulkind:

I know a terrific dentist in Brooklyn, in case anyone needs.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:24pm kat330:

@ngh: [scrolling back up] When you're cavity-free at sixty, send me an email. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:27pm Doug Schulkind:

Whatever you do, don't let your dentist remove that tiny back-molar transmitter WFMU implanted!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:28pm northguineahills:

I only had my wisdom teeth come in on my mandible, where there was room, and not on my maxilla, where there is definitely no room, so I never had to have wisdom teeth yanked out.

That said, my bike accident on the Williamsburg Bridge (2003) knocked my molars on my mandible down to my gum line.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:29pm kat330:

Sorry, Doug-o, that was entirely removed. I was robbed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Damn, kat330, those thing cost us a mint. And they were mint-flavored!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:30pm kat330:

@ngh: Still gives you 3x the wisdom most of us have post-20.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:33pm kat330:

My other beef with my dentist, having only coconut-flavored substances to, whatever. She always would say "this will be like a pina colada" after it was too late for me to object. I hate coconut.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:34pm Philo Gristle:

I had one of my wisdom teeth knocked out by an assault rifle. It was the same instance that gave me a permanent dimple that kat says was done by a bayonet. I tell all this because it makes me sound badass.

(I fainted on the rifle after a mild five-minute exercise)
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:34pm northguineahills:

I enjoy real coconut, if it's not too sweet. Artificial coconut, hell no!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Coconut no, donut yes!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:36pm kat330:

Those sane-minded Scandis and Swiss, making EVERYone dude spend a year in the military.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:39pm listener james from westwood:

as encounters w/ an assault rifle go, it's not the worst one can imagine. still, yikes!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:39pm kat330:

Speaking of Scandinavia (Finland, to be specific), we just received a "paketti" from Philo's dad that included a 1930s journal/songbook (mostly in Swedish, some in English). What a treasure!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:42pm Philo Gristle:

@ljfw It was a quick way to get rid of one of my wisdom teeth. And it gave me an out to most of the rest of the marching!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:43pm kat330:

@James: I still insist his left dimple is from a bayonet incident. ;)
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:45pm kat330:

Someone's at the dentist with Dinah. What a set of pipes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

I once had all four impacted wisdom teeth extracted in one operation. The general anesthesia wore off mid-surgery and I STILL feel it, 33 years later.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:49pm kat330:

Moi, aussi, Doug. And a week later I was on a plane home to Indiana, and three weeks later I was in Zurich. Quick heal was needed and, gratefully occurred.

Re: Doucet: I don't think there's another genre of music that makes me happier and "dancier" than cajun music. Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:50pm Doug Schulkind:

My dear Jessie's plane from Melbourne takes off in 36 minutes. When it touches down in Los Angeles, it will be five hours earlier! (Leaves at 11:25am and arrives at 6:25am) Almost as cool as getting bayonetted!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:52pm kat330:

Excellent your Jessie's nearly home!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Two weeks rather flew by. Across the international dateline and everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 6:54pm Doug Schulkind:

I second that cajun emotion.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:54pm Holly in NC:

Hi Kat330! I understand that there are several great dentists here in Durham. I sadly haven't had dental insurance since I was 16, but luckily have awesome tooth genetics & great care through age 16 so, er, I haven't been to the dentist in a very long time. My housemate uses a dentist who caters to the noninsured/service industry crowd - if one is stoic a tooth pull only costs a couple hundred bucks (novacaine pull, nothing thereafter). Folks with insurance go elsewhere & get nitrous ;-)
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:54pm tr;sh:

Hope her welcome arrival is at a time other than 2:30.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:56pm northguineahills:

Darn, I was hoping for Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem!
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:56pm kat330:

Thanks, Holly! Never had nitrous myself. My 4 impacted wisdom teeth came out with local anesthesia, and everything else since as well. They say you don't heal as well if you're completely under. Something about consciousness aiding the healing process. Makes sense.
  Tue. 12/11/12 6:57pm Holly in NC:

Welcome home to Jessie!

G'night everyone!

Wait, kat, Finland isn't Scandinavia!
  Tue. 12/11/12 7:01pm Philo Gristle:

@ngh Depends on who you ask!!

Doug -- Thanks for a terrific show, as always.
  Tue. 12/11/12 7:01pm listener james from westwood:

a toothsome show! thanks, doug. see you in 6 months!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/11/12 7:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Put the bayonettes down, people!
  Tue. 12/11/12 7:02pm Holly in NC:

Also Kat - If you're LUCKY you can win the UNC dental school lottery, the students do work very inexpensively (under supervision) and they give out MEGA painkillers. But the chances of getting in are slim, it's like any other lottery. Except worse.
Also if you are admitted to either of the 2 primary homeless shelters you in fact get free & close to immediate care.

a belated good evening Doug! - was kind of preoccupied and forgot the show was on - looks great tho! - will catch it on the archive
