Such great comments. This painting is Regretsylicious.
“A ring! Fantastic! Do I have fingers? Do I have arms? You’re useless, Roger! Useless!”
She was a nagging harpy of a tooth.
This only heightens my insane fear of dentists and dentistry.
creepiest. thing. ever.
Wow, do Teeth have teeth!?
Maybe some do, but I don’t think these teethpeople do… But if some teeth have teeth, then WHERE DOES IT END?!?! :O
That image is going to be floating around doing weird things to my subconscious for a while.
And the wallpaper!
And the lips sofa…
It’s by that artist, Man Tooth
> to set patients’ minds at ease.
I find that if I floss regularly my teeth don’t get painful so I don’t have to find a new dentist to destroy them further.
Does that remind anyone else of the album art on the Derek & the Dominos Layla album?
Actually it reminds me of a little ditty from my weird childhood:
I was thinking Van Dyke Parks’ covers for Little Feat.
Creepy, yet disturbing.
that box of chocolate is ironic haha
Notice the chocolates are sugar free.
Until I noticed the ring, I had a rather disturbing interpretation of their positions and body language.
So did I.
Did anyone else notice the lamps?
Oh yes, oral sex teeth.. Totally will calm me down when my mouth is being tooled.
Haha! Rob, you said “new” dentist, like you were going to go back.
What? Oh. Well, he must be a hell of a good dentist if you’re willing to look at that thing across the room while reading a magazine seven months old.
And uh where is that ring supposed to go?
Looks more like a Little Feat album cover. Neon Park Lives!
They’re drinking mouthwash!
Yeah, but ’43 was a good year.
I made you a GIF:
Moderator note: may induce seizures
I think Grandma tooth watching from her portrait in the background is the creepiest part.
How do they pick the glasses up? With their roots / legs?
Tooth fellatio makes a lot more sense than one tooth proposing to another, ring or not.
Will they be raising a couple of canines together? Would the woman in the photo on the plaque approve?
I don’t know that I’d let somebody who put that up on their wall anywhere near my mouth.
My immediate response, too. Bad painting is one thing but this is just plain creepy. I would not opt to be put under with this dentist.
I just read the post about xkcd procrastination and immediately resolved to have more clarity and get more done. Yet here I am, commenting on a sexually suggestive tooth painting. Spread those roots baby…. lolwut
Makes the phrase “root canal” more appealing…
Definitely a fetishistic image.
Whats the word for people who are into tooth cosplay?
And that, Johnny, is where baby teeth come from…
He’s about to check her cavity
Look out lady — he’s an escaped dental patient
He just came out as bicuspid.
Naw, turned out she’s bicuspid.
