“You don't have to floss all of your teeth, just the ones you want to keep.”
Dental floss is a controversial new technology used for cleaning teeth and space travel.
Dental floss was originally used in medieval times to hold catapult arms down. When they wanted to fire, they would cut the floss and the arm would swing and the projectile would go flying. It wasn't until the 1960s that it was discovered that dental floss could be used to clean [[teeth]. At this time, most floss was coated in lead to make it highly durable and water resistant. This was discontinued because it killed people, or something.
A few decades later, women decided to use the floss in their knitting. This started the 1990s Floss Knitting craze which competed with Gimp for the all-time greatest form of fabric artisan supremacy.
It has since been suggested that dental floss does not actually do anything to clean your teeth, but is just a marketing scheme like diet soda, free health care, or chipmunks. More educated individuals know not only that the conspiracy exists but that it was created in a joint agreement between the American Dental Association and the United States String Company. The agreement was that dentists would tell patients that floss was not only useful but essential to healthy teeth. In doing so the string company made profits, giving boobartial royalties to dentists and putting their name on the box. While dentists aggresively deny this, it has become generally accepted, leading to lowered floss sales and increased cavities. In fact, the value of dental floss has decreased enough that some dentists are giving it away free to customers instead of the old conventional toothbrush, what is the world coming to? Children are hanging themselves with floss, young girls are tying up their dolls hostage and old men are using it to...well we won't delve into that but floss is being used for all the wrong reasons!
