Half a croissant, on a plate, with a sign in front of it saying '50c'

Still more entertaining than cricket.

Linotype was the now largely defunct system of creating typographic lines. The machines generated short lengths of type featuring raised letters, that were subsequently inked up and printed.

Lino-teeth uses this same principal only it outputs the groups of words embedded into the gums of sets of false teeth. Preset short phrase dental sets are carefully arranged and transported in a special box, with labelled dividers, so that when the need arises they can be taken out and used to bite into any soft material that requires an appropriate comment. This will leave an impression that has a top and bottom, so that it must be turned over to be read fully.

       So, this is only for toothless people? I have my own teeth, so would there be something like 'tooth cap type' to fit over real teeth?

       It's not only for toothless people, nor does indicate as such. Can be slipped easily over existing teeth, supplanting them. I have already hand-made some sets and tested them. I just don't like over elaborate descriptions.

       I'm very sorry [xenzag]. I re-read it several times and just didn't understand //embedded into the gums of sets of false teeth//. I will give you a croissant to chomp on!

       So, similar to those magnetic words you put on the refrigerator and people make poems with, but for your teeth? Too fun, a bun.

       I'm kinda wondering what you normally leave bite marks on. And not coming up with anything printable.

       Brilliant. A virtual + from me.

       There are so many times when I could have used a set of these! I bite a croissant shape into your soft material!

       What a wonderful way to ask your beloved to marry you, when sharing a romantic piece of gum! +

       From the title I was picturing linoleum dentures. Hardwood teeth I've heard of but linoleum? F'getaboudit.   

       You could use these for authenticating gold nuggets.
