So what starts them spinning? Deft tongue twirling? Retarded.

Wouldn't they just tear up the inside of your lips?

The people in my neighborhood who have the spinning hubcaps have had the spinning teeth for over a year already. They like to pull up beside you and grin and show them off. I've heard that replacing the batteries is painful, however. Sometimes I roll down my window and say, "Dude, your teeth and your hubcaps are spinning in opposite directions." They hate that.

That's the price you pay for beauty.

What concerns me the most is the pain they would cause your "partner" should pubic hairs become entangled as they rotate, winding them ever tighter. Do they turn off?

This might go over really well with the ZZ Top set.

I bet they spin around like pinwheels, so you have to get a breeze going on your face before they really start to bling...

Dear God and/or C'thulhu and/or Ba'al and/or Xenu:

After who knows how many eons of development, this is what we've done with the gifts of the wheel and fire. Sorry. Maybe you should give the dolphins or cockroaches a chance.

Please nuke us back to the stone age and take away all of our toys and as much stupidity as possible. Thank you.

I was really up in the air about whether to put my money into tech firms, or spinning teeth. I can't speak for everyone, but personally, I'm happy I went with the bling.

"Well I was movin' down the road in my V-8 Ford,
I had a shine on my boots, I had my sideburns lowered.
With my New York brim and my gold tooth displayed,
Nobody give me trouble cause they know I got it made.
I'm bad, I'm nationwide.
Girl I'm bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, I'm nationwide."

Probably closer to Dmx than ZZ Top.

I'm more in awe over the web design than the product. I haven't seen something that bad in awhile.

It does remind me of a recent "yo mama" joke I heard though:

Yo' mama soooo poor she thought bling-bling was a panda.

That site, with flashblock on and animated gifs disabled, is just fine.

These don't encourage a diet rich in fiber. A practical questions: are them teeth (spinner or just plain flat bling) meant to be worn all the time -- or is just just ornament you wear when you step outside?
posted by NewBornHippy at 4:14 PM on May 23, 2005


Ahhh, the dumbassification of the universe has just reached a critical mass and we're all about to be sucked into the vorpal black hole of retardization.

That someone would actually put this ridiculous garbage in their mouth and think its cool is about the funniest and saddest thing I've heard in a long time.

I think we should use these bling-bling teeth as a metric: if you've got 'em, you fail the test of life and have to give it up. Perhaps we'll let someone from a disadvantaged country fill your shoes.

A couple weeks ago, on the subway, I saw a guy with the crookedest buck teeth I've ever seen, yet every last one of 'em was sportin a shiny gold cap. Dude looked like Bling-Biling the Beaver.

Different cultures, different status symbols. Get over it.

From most of us, yeah, especially if it looked this stupid.

Different cultures, different status symbols.

It's the very idea of "status symbols" that irks me about the whole enterprise.

Nice try, though.

I'd mock that too thanks. Stupid and excessive is stupid and excessive, whether it's spinning rims for your car and teeth, overpriced bags and makeup, or those ludicrous neck rings and lip discs that some tribes sport.

...and making holier-than-thou comments on community weblogs. It all springs from the same place: someone trying to pretend they're not just like everyone else.

Sorry, jonmc, that this isn't how I react when I see this stuff. And that I dislike when people do. It's just a personal preference. You roll your eyes at bling, I roll my eyes when you do.

I shouldn't even have commented on this thread. My apologies, I don't like to troll. Ignore me, continue as you were.

And I roll my eyes at your eye rolling.

Explaining away stupidity as "cultural differences," does a disservice to any culture. Right after I clicked on the link and started laughing, two co-workers of mine (one black & one Latin, both from neigborhoods where bling-bling is quite prevalent) peered over to see what was so funny and immediately burst into hysterics themselves, because it's bling taken to a ridiculous extreme. And I'd laugh just as hard if it was some Texans foot-wide belt buckle or some preppies $1200 shoes. And I'm a big fan of garish and outre. But this...this is just stupid.

Or to put it more succintly: I refuse to let the ridiculous go unacknowledged as such just to spare your tender sensibility.

Hell, I'll just be direct about it. I read some of the comments here and I saw what looked like thinly veiled racism. I reacted. That was silly of me, I shouldn't have. It's Metafilter, not Stormfront. I lost my common sense and sense of humor on the way to the keyboard today. My dumb fault.

Again, ignore me. I don't like trolling. Go about your business.

OK, I can see where someone unfamiliar with my posting style could get that impression. It was literally the joke I cracked to my aforementioned freinds when I saw the site, they laughed, so I figured what the hell. The lowrider breast implants I came up with on my own (but I still stand by that one). I'm familiar enough with "urban" culture (I live in Queens and I've lived in other big cities) that i feel comfortable breaking balls about this stuff. But if I gave the wrong impression, I can understand and I apologize. You seem like a reasonable guy, so I wouldn't want to make an enemy.

Forgive me, but I'm having a bit of trouble visualizing the lowrider breast implants. How would they work exactly?
posted by dopeypanda at 9:26 PM on May 23, 2005


Do you have a grandma or know one? Add hydraulics and bling. Bumpin' sound system and pimped out upholstery optional.

Only if stupid is a race, man. Only if.

Low rider breast implants are only good if they've got the hydraulic bounce units as well.

I'm just grossed out by the fact that a lot of the people who opt to wear gold teeth grills (with spinning bling or not) often keep them in for a while without adequate cleaning as the grills are so hard to remove for proper oral care. Wearers of the grills end up not brushing/flossing enough or adequately and eventually their teeth rot behind the bling, leading to the teeth needing to be capped for real. Obviously, this can't be any sillier than women who undergo elective foot surgery to remove a toe, just so that they may squeeze their feet into Manalo Blahniks. Both instances are just signs of vanity and status losing out over common sense.

At least you matchin'.
posted by Fuzzy Monster at 9:42 AM on May 24, 2005


Call me racist or whatever, but this is the silliest crap ever. How anyone can see someone with these teeth and say "damn, that's hot" is just beyond me. It's like the baggy pants at the knees and having to walk around holding them up. I have the hardest time not breaking into belly laughter when I see people dressed like that. And now this silly "bling." What a fricking joke. There was an article in the SF Chronicle a few months ago about how girls of all ethnicities are getting this as temporary accoutrements for their prom outfits. Blah.

Someday they will hopefull grow up and say "what the f was I thinking?" (Like I have done looking back at my goth stage, and even earlier, my ultra-pegged pants and shoulder pads and big cable knit sweaters in bright colors, and big pendant pins. Ugh. The 80's were bad.) But this is ranks as even worse.
