2021 Monster Month: Orthodontic Nightmare

It would take a VERY brave orthodontist to stick his/her hand into THAT mouth to try to straighten things out.

This guy doesn’t chew his food really. Each row of teeth spins counter to each other like a series of saw blades in order to chop up his food. It must work like a charm, because the fella doesn’t look like he’s hurting for a meal.

The only real trouble is having to floss three rows of teeth after every meal. All this guy has time for is floss, then eat, floss, then eat. It’s worth it in the end if he never has to get dentures some day.


I’m not sure what got more paint – the sketchbook or my hand!
