Polaroid Toothpicks

Grind things with your molars and pour saliva over them

We've all had the experience: A great meal, lingering flavors, and something stuck between your teeth. What is it?

A caroway seed, a sprig of dill? It's certainly not a red pepper seed.

Tear the protective cover off of a Polaroid Toothpick, wedge it into the place where the unknown leftover is, and sit with your lips and teeth parted for a brief period of time to expose the multi-layer media package at the toothpick's tip.

Then remove the pick, and wave it in the air for a minute or so. Then look at the tiny image and you'll have a clue as to what that remnant of your meal is.

       Is your endoscope in for repairs?

       Many years ago I wrote here a very similar idea of the late and very troubled Yogev Ukashi, just after he had committed suicide.   

       Looking back I found that I had posted a different idea of his, and not the one with a camera.   

       The reason for that was that at the time I thought it was impossible to attach a camera to a toothpick.

       I would think it would be very simple to attach a camera to a toothpick, just use sticky tape or an elastic band.

       Polaroid film is increasingly difficult to get these days (at least the type 100 packfilm format is anyway), there is a boutique company in Vienna who still make it, but it's f-ing expensive.   

       Is there such a thing as an auto-dental periscope?

       I must have not communicated clearly. This would be akin to a contact print. If there was any lens involved, it would be a slight bubble on the top layer of the media package.
