EXPERTS WARN OF MISBEHAVING TOOTH FAIRY

The BMJ Christmas edition has reported "mounting accounts of less child-friendly activity" regarding the tooth fairy, who was once regarded as kind and giving.

Researchers from across London became concerned following misdemeanors of the mythical character. One boy in particular became extremely distressed because the tooth fairy "had put a tooth in his left ear," after he left it under his pillow. Further investigation turned out he was right.
