    Everybody’s talking about
    Incisors, canines, premolars, molars, wisdoms
    This-tooth, that-tooth, ooth ooth
    All we are saying is give teeth a chance
    All we are saying is give teeth a chance
    All we are saying is give teeth a chance

  5. $16k? My nine year old gets five dollars for teeth and I reckon thats robbery.

    A reverse price, huh? Must be a backwards auction, then.

    I’m as big pf a Beatles fan as anyone, but just stop and imagine the conceit of approaching another person, handing them some medical waste and saying, “Listen, I know you’re a fan, you should have this.”

      In the sixties, the Beatles were bigger than anyone, including whatsisface, you know, Him. This didn’t escape John’s notice. Conceit has nothing to do with it; imagine being so famous that you know someone is probably going to rummage through your garbage and collect it anyway, because fans are weird like that.

      Better than Madonna’s pap smear

    If it was pulled by Dr. Robert…

    And we think Catholic relics are ridiculous …

    Right alongside with Madonna’s pap smear.

    Smart man. Shot in the back, very sad.

    My hat’s off to you, David Pescovitz, for your brilliant and apt use of a hard-to-hear quote from “Revolution 9″. That’s the sign of a true fan. Collecting teeth? Not so much.

  14. Cynical says:

    Shit, for $16,000 dollars a pop, I’ve got a whole mouth full of John Lennon teeth.

  15. Michael W. says:

    Imagine there’s no dentin…

    That one decayed tooth has probably more musical talent than lots of current “superstars”. And you can’t download it. Therefore it’s valuable for musical fetishists.
