Mobile Dentist

Provincial Police in Ontario, Canada, received a report of a truck driving erratically near Sarnia. They found the truck and pulled it over, and found that the unnamed driver had been doing some “amateur tooth pulling” while driving. Const. John Reurink said the 58-year-old trucker had a toothache, and had tied one end of a string around the tooth, and another to the roof of his cab, and told the officer that “one bump and the tooth should come out.” Sure enough, Reurink said, “the evidence of his efforts were nearby,” with a bloody tooth and string sitting on the seat. The trucker was cited for careless driving. (RC/Toronto Sun) ...Huh. Who knew there were rednecks in Canada?
