Ripped from the Headlines: "I'll Give you Fiddy Bucks fo' dat Toof"

According to this story from Local 6, it's a dental gold rush at Orlando pawn shops now that you can trade in your grill for cash.  

"People are selling piles of teeth, dental caps, fillings, and even bridgework to cash in on gold's high prices.''  Darn! Local 6 offers up no pictures of the "teeth piles".

Because we're such a refined bunch here in Central Florida, nobody has actually killed anyone or made an attempt to forcibly remove someone else's mouth bling, however, one pawn shop owner reports, "If a dentist passes away, their kids come in with a big pile of gold teeth."
