List: Best responses to Steve Gadlin's Facebook request for suggestions for what to put under his daughter's pillow to replace her lost tooth

Previous Next
My friend Steve Gadlin asked on Facebook recently, "What should I put under my daughter's pillow to replace her baby tooth? Funny answers only." Here are the best of the responses:

Someone else's tooth

An itemized invoice

A dinosaur tooth

A dead parrot


A skull with all of its teeth missing except the one she placed under the pillow

More teeth

A letter that reads: Dear Izzie, Thank you for ripping me away from my family, whom I loved dearly. Ask your daddy what revenge means. Sleep tight. Love, Tooth #1

Two pounds of raw beef

A note from an evil alchemical scientist telling her he is now a little bit closer to creating a homunculus

The Spanish inquisition! (no one expects that!)

Some rad decals

Super glue

Pull out your own teeth and a note that says "we are all in this together"

A doughnut

Mexican pesos

A picture of the girl who's covered with hair and a note that says "it could be worse."


I never got money, I only got multi-page letters from the toothfairy that detailed her hard living ways in a handwriting identical to my father's. Not a joke.
