The Tooth Fairy

For generations, parents have been spinning yarns to their offspring in an attempt to encourage positive behaviour or sugar coat some of life's more unpleasant events. Be it Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy. The motive for doing so might well be honourable, but the long term harm maybe immense.

Little thought is given as to what lessons might be gleaned from these white lies. If a set amount of financial gain is possible in exchange for a tooth, how much greater would the remunerations be for other organs? Before you know it, kidneys are being sold on eBay.

Such enterprise also courts the more unscrupulous element of society. Money can change hands on the promise that certain body parts will do likewise at a later date. Failure to deliver at the required time may prove to have unpleasant consequences.
 You also wouldn't want to be at home when the Anal Virginity Ogre calls!

Following the Chancellor's recent budget, I'm suggesting that the going rate for a tooth for the Tooth Fairy be lowered to two pence with any rise being capped at 1% until 2016.

  9. We do not have the Tooth Fairy in Israel. I had to google it! Who had the idea that children can sell their teeth? It is a strange concept.
