This posting might give you something to sink your teeth into. Or maybe, it's just a bit of 'filling' before I actually formulate something remotely close to a decent article
"A rotten tooth, said to belong to John Lennon, is going up for auction on Saturday. The cavity-ridden, discoloured molar is expected to raise £10,000 at least, according to the auctioneers in Stockport. No DNA tests have been done on the tooth because it is so fragile but it was reportedly given by Lennon to his former housekeeper, Dot Jarlett, in the mid-1960s when they were in the kitchen of his house. "He was very generous to my mother, Jarlett's son, Barry, told the BBC. "He treated her like family because he didn't really have a very big family and he really looked after my mum. He used to call her Aunty Dot." Source : The Huffington Post, Friday, November 4, 2011
Now then, John Lennon apparently pulled out his cavity-ridden, discoloured molar. A bit of "twist and shout!" Or maybe he used, "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". Anyway, I can visualise the proceedings at the auction. The 'Tooth Fairy' would be the auctioneer and the audience would be made up of eager, long in the tooth, dentists. And perhaps, the Tooth Fairy might just use Maxwell's Silver Hammer as some kind of symbolic gavel.
Here are some songs you may associate with the Beatles and John Lennon. 'Long Tooth Sally', 'Get Plaque', 'Gum Together', 'Happiness Is A Warm Gum', 'Toothy In The Sky With Diamonds', 'Love Me Chew', 'Yes Decay....all my troubles seemed so far away..'. Okay, brace yourself, I know you can come up with your own toothy tunes. All I am saying is, 'Give Teeth A Chance....'
Before I go, the photo is evidently John Lennon's prized molar. That's the tooth, the hole tooth and nothing but the tooth....
