The “Five Questions” Meme from Patterico

Flap hopes he is doing this in the correct format and manner so will post the “Five Questions” MeMe answers here and under Patterico’s Blog comments section.

The “Five Questions” can be found here:

I have these five questions for Flap:

1) 4 out of 5 dentists recommend sugarless gum for their patients who chew gum. What does the 5th recommend?

2) Why do you guys always try to talk to us when we have that tube in our mouth?

3) Do you think the current filibuster deal has any teeth to it? Also, do you have any canines?

4) Do you enjoy it when people make bad puns about teeth? Also, do you mind if I combine two questions into one, if the two questions are really lame?

5) What the heck does “Fullosseous” mean?

Number 1

Jolt Cola – if the sugar doesn’t rot your teeth then the caffeine will make you clench them uncontrollably and a fractured tooth needs to be repaired too.
Well, you have to make up for the other 4.

Number 2

So, our patients cannot talk back to us. Willie Brown, the former Assembly Speaker and Mayor of San Francisco once told me that whenever his dentist talks he listens (especially when the dentist has that 3 inch needle in his mouth – he is all ears).

Number 3

The Filibuster DEAL sucks(while it lasted) and still sucks. Read about it here and here.

No, Canines at this time but I like Snoopy


Number 4

No! Be true to your teeth or they will be FALSE to you.

And why are your teeth like stars?………………………………………..because they come out at night.

Are those two lame enough?

Number 5

Fullosseousflap = A derived dental term nickname
