Hometown pride, wif teef.

I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota, which according to this site, is one of the best states to live in the country. Perhaps because we are so low-rated on this alternate chart:

A ranking of states by loss of natural teeth.

MN is #2 cuz we have so much meth here.

So I'm guessing we're gonna start rising up to numero uno on that list of states wif teef.

I had no idea Texas would make it that far... Probably because there are so many of us, and we age gracefully. Seriously, I don't look a day over 15.

Kind of a weird definition though:

DEFINITION: Adults aged 65+ who have had all their natural teeth extracted.

CA still beats MN...YAY!!!!

Um Dan, you're reading that teeth chart wrong - Minnesota being near the bottom is a GOOD thing. Did you actually think that folks from West Virginia had the best oral health in the country?? That chart says that 42.8% of WVirginias have had natural teeth removed. Minnesotans actually have the 4th best teeth in the country, not 4th worst.

I'm quite aware that being low-rated on the chart is a good thing. What would make you think otherwise?

Oh my gosh there are actually no pictures of t-bone here! just kidding Dan, i like your blog - with all your friends. Btw why doesnīt the chart have Missourian/Texan/German muts like me represented? I want to see what kind of teeth i have! unfair :,(

and donīt anyone say because no one wants to know anything about me - i saw that coming, so HA i beat you to it. Go freak mutant Missourian/Texan/Germans!!!

I don't care what this site says; in no universe is Missouri a better place to live than Washington. Yes, I'm taking
Eastern Washington into account when I say that.

Oh man, I was confused. Gawd, Texas is baaad... Come to think of it I am already missing 3/4 of a tooth and I'm only 20. Damn...

(Sarah sounds like white trash. don't worry, it's in the back and it's bridged.)

I guess the "meth effect" is rarely seen among the 65+ crowd...yet. don't worry sissy, the teeth chart is agreeing with you!

Oh, you strong teethed minnesotans, i honor you.

By Blogger Christine, at 4:56 PM  

I'm sorry Dan - I completely misread your post! My sincere apologies. I should have known better than to doubt you. I guess I'm still in shock that someone compiled that teeth-loss chart in the first place... I keep having images of state residents lined up in front of pollsters, each of whom open their mouths horse-style to have their teeth counted.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:01 PM  

is anyone actually surprised that southern states were at the top of the teeth chart?

By Anonymous Sonya, at 2:48 AM  

Oh that's hilarious!

By Blogger Kimmy, at 11:42 PM  

Yeah - I'd think that was true about West Virginia. Went camping there a couple of years ago. Very friendly toothless bunch of people - but they give really horrible directions.... everything is to the left. Everything. And they estimate distance by how many "looks" up the road something is...

I wonder how Canada does - I mean I am 30 and don't even have a cavity (must be all that seal skin I chew). LOL.

By Blogger elizabeth, at 1:51 PM  

Im not gonna tell y'all where I am currently living, but I do have all my teeth, and so do all my friends. My husbands relatives, well that there is a different story. They lose their teeth because they start feeding 2 week old babies ketchup, and putting kool aid and coffee milk in bottles. One relative had a mouth full of metal caps at 6yrs old because her black rotted teeth kept breaking off in her food. My very proper dad called her "jaws"
from the James Bond movie. Yeuck.

You gotta love a state that has signs on the side of the highway..."6 teeth for $150.00." For joke.

Im still not telling you what state I live in.

Minnesota is only 3rd on the binge drinking list, though. You guys are slacking off there, better get to work!!!
