    Thief nabbed with 68 tubes of toothpaste

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090403/...toothpaste_odd

    Noticing his bulging jacket, a store worker grabbed the man when he refused to stop and the tubes of toothpaste spilled all over the floor, police said.

    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Obama was in Germany Friday, maybe he just wanted to look his best, with a bright smile. I wonder if he had a pgk of dental floss and a toothbruth in one of the bugles?

    I hope he grabbed a toothbrush, too!

    (come on... what's the point of having 68 tubes of toothpaste, if you don't have a toothbrush)?
    .... ....... My posts are my opinion, only.

    I hope it was not tainted toothpaste from China that was sold a few years ago.

    Do you know if he had really really really white teeth?

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"

    Maybe he was a smoker and they were really, really yellow and he was trying to get them really, really white. Or he was a dentist and was going to charge his patients per tube on the bill.

    Maybe he had sinister plans to commit suicide with toothpaste, or something. heh wonder if it was fluoride toothpaste

    What to Expect at the Emergency Room Return to top

    People who swallow regular (nonfluoride) toothpaste may not need to be seen in the emergency room.

    Those who swallow a lot of fluoride toothpaste (more than one tube) may need to go to the emergency room.

    At the emergency room, the health care provider will measure and monitor the patient's vital signs, including temperature, pulse, breathing rate, and blood pressure. The patient may receive:

    Calcium -- medicine (antidote) to reverse the effect of the poison
    Endoscopy -- camera down the throat to see burns to the esophagus and the stomach
    Fluids by IV
    Medicines to treat symptoms
    Tube through the mouth into the stomach to wash out the stomach (gastric lavage)
    Outlook (Prognosis) Return to top

    Patients who swallow a very large amount of fluoride toothpaste and survive 48 hours usually recover. See also: Fluoride overdose

    Most nonfluoride (regular) toothpastes are relatively nontoxic (nonpoisonous). Recovery is very likely.

    Now I've heard of stealing some crazy things but toothpaste? At least he's concerned about his pearly whites!
