Even a Mugshot Deserves a Bright Smile

January 5, 2015

crestTwo Indianapolis-area men have been arrested in the theft of thousands of dollars of Crest Whitening Strips from several Walmart and Target locations.  While the police were all smiles when they nabbed the bleaching burglars, the two men only grimaced when they learned that they would be charged with a felony which means they might be a little long in the tooth—a yellow tooth—by the time they are released from jail.

    Too funny. Imagine when they tell that story to other inmates. Instant cred.

    When the local denizens make the front pages of the newspapers with their mugshots, I always say, “It simply doesn’t do them justice.”

    I think they were hired by local dentists to remove the whitener from the hands (and teeth) of potential patients.

    Forrest, it’s the lure of a bright smile. It draws a lot of people to the world of crime. Alas!

    If you’re an indigent inmate in Indiana, at least they give you a toothbrush and toothpaste, so there’s that.

      Maybe they will now include some toothpaste with whitener. That is fair justice after all.

    Oh, “them Indiana boys on them Indiana nights” were probably taking their Last Dance with Mary Jane. Oh my, my, oh hell yes, they had to put on their party dress!

      OR Theresa, they were re-selling the stuff on eBay??

        And probably adding some “extra” white goods to it, too 😉

    🙂 (If I knew how to create an emoticon with teeth, I’d put one here.)

    Hard to hide when your teeth are that bright.

    “Shut up, man. Stop making me laugh.”

    “Oh, shit.”
