Smile When You Say Wally World

Those wacky Massachusetts’ people! What will they do next to get in the news?

It seems that a customer shopping at a Falmouth (quite the appropriate city name for this story) WalMart for a wallet claims he found something that definitely didn’t fit the bill: human teeth.

Police say the man found 10 human teeth Saturday when he unzipped a compartment in the wallet. One tooth had a filling.

The customer turned the wallet and the teeth over to employees at the Falmouth store but left without giving his name. (I wonder if they checked his smile on the way out the door. Any teeth missing?)

Police investigating the incident told The Cape Cod Times that the teeth belong to an adult, but since there was no blood or gum tissue on the teeth, they would be unable to perform DNA tests.

A Walmart spokeswoman said the company believes it was an “isolated incident,” but will investigate. (I would hope so!)

So, wonder who’s missing 10 teeth. Or, could this be a case where the “tooth fairy” was out shopping after a busy night, stopped into the nearby WalMart to pick up a wallet, laid down her night’s collection, and forgot them? Or, is there a serial tooth stealer in Falmouth? Or, better yet, is this another way for the local union to discredit WalMart, as they’ve been known to do.

I’ll be watching the news for updates. This is almost as good as the found feet in Washington State! Almost!


  1. Oh my. That reminds me of a day last week. I was taking pictures at my brother's house and I picked up a little boot carved from wood. (My dad had made it). Inside were 8 or 10 little teeth -- two of my nephews were using it as a depository.

  2. Karma...I saw your post about this! Too funny!

  3. I guess someone was just trying to take the "bite" out of buying a wallet???
