After children lose teeth, the Tooth Fairy comes at night and takes them, usually exchanging them for a little money.  The Tooth Fairy never visited you?  What do you do with all your old teeth?

The tooth fairy is an obscure character from English folklore that was passed along to American folklore and apparently also to the folklore of other English-speaking countries.  It has a status comparable to that of Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.  It might have begun in early Celtic and/or Norse myths.  Now that you make me think of it, it actually seems quite bizarre that many parents today still practice the old rituals associated with this fantasy creature.  It causes me to wonder if perhaps we haven't come all that far as a species since the days of worshipping rocks and sticks.  Here's some info I gleaned from the web, but it won't tell you much more than I just did:


The origin of the tooth Fairy is one of the least historically documented stories in the folklore of Western civilization.  The idea of financial exchange between fairies and people is a practice that took place in many countries. Since fairies could take on any form their activities and descriptions varied from country to country.  Through ages people had many traditional beliefs, including: the presence of supernatural beings such as fairies and evil spirits, the body was magically connected, and the rodents played an important role in disposing of baby teeth. These were very important customs and rites not only in Europe, but worldwide. The different cultures of humanity believed that the proper disposal of baby teeth, in the past times known as milk teeth, was very serious business indeed.  In Britain, as in America, the Tooth Fairy is celebrated today in a ceremony involving the tradition of leaving a coin under a child's pillow in return for the child's milk tooth. The Tooth Fairy always comes during the night and takes the tooth back to the tooth museum. And, of course, she always leaves a coin in its place.  The Tooth Fairy knows-and so do children everywhere-that baby teeth are safe in the baby tooth museum, where they will last forever.  The legend of the tooth fairy is a prized one in our culture. But where did this legend come from? The following article describes the conventions and possible origins of the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy comes when a child has lost a tooth. Commonly, she is very small, and she comes in the middle of the night.  The child is to leave the tooth under his/her pillow, so that the tooth fairy can take it during her visit. Once she has taken the tooth, she leaves monetary reimbursement under the pillow, anything from ten cents to a dollar. (This action is done by a parent.) The teeth are then taken to her tower, and used for her purposes. Pictures of the tooth fairy have been captured in everything from storybooks to art. The painter Maxfield Parrish is said to have depicted her once in the corner of a painting. Fairies in general are generally considered to be great influences in art, and folklore and legend surround each fairy tale. It is reasonable to think that the tooth fairy legend originated from a place where folklore and legend are tradition, namely, England or Ireland. Tradition in England holds that if a child's tooth falls out, that child must drop it into a fire, to avoid having to look for it after death. While this tale is pretty chilling, this may be the origin of the importance of a lost tooth. This tale was handed down during the Middle Ages to smaller children during the teething stage. The addition of fire into the mix may have conjured up images of sorcery.  Early alleged witches were often burned because people believed money appeared after they threw articles into fire. From this tale comes the importance of keeping a tooth. When a witch burned a piece of hair, clothing or teeth from a person, she supposedly obtained power over them. Parents may have scared children into keeping teeth or burning them themselves in order to keep themselves free of demon possession.  Even more interesting is the fact that Vikings had a "tooth fee," or a fee that was given to children upon the use of a tooth. The teeth were later strung to make jewellery some researchers claim. This old legend is surrounded in mystery. Alongside it is the superstition in early Viking days that children's articles and pieces contained great power. Having an article of a child, or a child in your possession was supposed to bring power and luck in battle.  Today, this myth is regarded as no more than children's entertainment. Parents dutifully sneak into rooms at night, bearing gifts for the loss of a tooth. Perhaps it is a reward for a "passing of age." A lost tooth is one of the first signs of growing up. Perhaps it is felt that a piece of childhood is lost with every dropped tooth. Whatever the case, the tooth fairy lives on, carrying teeth away for uses that no one will ever know.

Well, it was a lengthy and rigorous two-step process:

First I had to spend nearly three seconds entering the words "tooth fairy" into a search engine.  Then, I had to spend over twenty seconds cutting and pasting text!  The things I do for you guys...

Also, another proof that the Professor isn't as smart as we always(?) assumed...

I don't think it's Bubblegum Tate, but I'm pretty sure it is one of the Globetrotters. I can't remember the right one's name though. I believe it was the lead Globetrotter, who said it while addressing Bender.

It's Ethan "Bubblegum" Tate, as [AdAm] already guessed.

Tate: "Bender, you can talk trash, you can ahndle the ball, but look in your heart and ask yourself: are you funky enough to be a Globetrotter. Are you?"
Bender: (slightly doubtful) "yes."
Tate: "Are you!?"
Bender: "I mean, with time my funklevel could...."
Tate: "ARE YOU!?"
Bender: "No..."
tate: "Deal with it!"

If no-one asks a question soon then I'll have to.
