Wally Walrus says, “Hey, kids. Look how long you will keep your teeth by brushing twice a day.” — Barbara Moore, Tinley Park
I told them if you kept eating peanut butter and jellyfish, you’ll have ugly stains on your teeth. — Carl F. Rollberg, Calumet Park
All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth brushed. — Radislav Majic, Chicago
Use Tusk Tusk Toothbrushes. We guarantee good dental health and fresh breath for your pets. — Jerry Centner, Oak Forest
Best of the Rest:
Brusha Brusha. Get the new walrus toothpaste. It’s just dandy for your tusks. — Kathy Brady, Midlothian
Please get the lower part of my tusk. I’m a good-looking girl and I got a hot date tonight. — John Morrissey, Tinley Park
Did you put enough toothpaste on the brush? — Tim Doyle, Oak Lawn
Are you sure you’re brushing twice a day? — Dorothy Purcell, Palos Park
Brusha, Brusha, Brusha. And they said I was too long in the tooth to do this commercial. — Joan E. Knudsen, Chicago Ridge
Thank God I’m not his proctologist. — Gino Cappuccino, Chicago
You’ll be amazed at how the ladies are dazzled by your smile after I get through here. — Dale Sink, Frankfort
