'Doc...Your services are needed'.
"What seems to be the problem George?"
'It's my teeth, they're killing me"!!!!
"Are you in pain?"
'PAIN? I can't eat anything harder than porridge.
They break and smell.'
"Well, lets have a look.....HOLY MARY JESUS and JOSEPH!!"
'What is it Doc...Cavities?
"No Mr. Washington...TERMITES!"
Urban legend? Maybe, that's for you and Google to figure out.
If you or anyone you know has Wooden Teeth or has written a Friday Flash 55

My 55 is up too. I am one of Brian's friends. Smiles. Hi G-Man!
Yikes on the termites ~
I'm here G ~ Smiles (finally figured out how to show my link too)
Scarlet Verses: color of last night's moon
I knew I wouldn't be the first here tonight. Poor George. I can't even imagine who much pain his teeth gave him! ... but termites - I think I'd rather have Benjamin Franklin's ailment... gout. :)
Brian brings a crowd - howdy - mine's up too. Cheers! ~ M
i guess the termites could be extra protein as well...smiles.
That's pretty creepy - termites swarming in the old Prez's mouth! Funny though and a good story!
Brian sent me
no wooden teeth
but I got an ol' 55 :)
Ah, heard the party was moved over here. I'll never look at a pic of George in the same way again. LOL

Hmm..I have a '55' too. It's not on my "usual" blog, it's here:
LMAO--it's bad enough going to the dentist, but I'd hate to have to call Terminix!
This is what happens when my husband makes me watch Nova:
Singing the Cuttlefish
Termites, lol, that's got to be my favorite 55, G.
termites... ha! that is brilliant.
In the shade of Peepal...
Hello G-Man - introduced to you by the birthday boy Brian :-)
I'm playin', I'm playin'!!
My sinuses are killing me and making the whole left side of my face hurt, including my teeth. I could use a pair of wooden dentures today!!!
Yikes! Call the Orkin Man!!!
What a wonderful presidential 55! I'd hate to have termites. I hate parasites of all kinds.
Mine is HERE.
I knew it was a myth but I Googled it anyway. From ABC News: "The dentures are made from gold, ivory, lead, human and animal teeth (horse and donkey teeth were common components)." Guess he was a little long in the tooth even after a new set. ;-)
I'm playing today. Here is my 55.
Hey there, G-Man, I've visited once or twice on my own, this time am part of the crowd coming in from dVerse, oh yeah, Brian sent me too! We're helping Brian celebrate his birthday in style and the "party" has moved to your page!! :-)
Here's my "55:"
eww - G Man - my second home is the dentist! Thankfully no wooden teeth or termites - quirky and made me smile - thank you!
Oh I submitted before but the link doesn't work - termites in my brain this morning it seems.
I played today on Brian's birthday, a gift to him, a gift to you, a gift to myself :-)
Am celebrating Brian's birthday as well. Mine is up too!
Ouch and Yuck in equal measure, G. Loved it! :)
My 55: Crepuscular
Howdy! Brian sent me over! :-)
Friend of Brian's (EGAD! ANOTHER one?)
My "55" is HERE
Haha wow htis was so funny and entertaining! I love how lively it was! :D It made me laugh out loud. :)
Great job to you!
Here's my 55:
I see the party has started…here's my 55, a little ancient story because that is just what I do best.
Hey G-Man. I'm one of Brian's invitees. hope you don't mind a few trespassers :-)
Hi G-man. I'm embarrassed that I haven't visited your blog in so long. I'm lazy even to count to 55. But today Brian coaxed me into writing something. Hope you've been well.
Your 55 made me smile. Thanks.
smiles... what an invasion... eh... not really awake yet but linking up mine...smiles
As if the wood peckers weren't bad enough. lol
I'm back! and mine is up.
Hm...I wonder if George could've eaten Bunny Bread.
ey Galen, I think my head may be more wooden than my teeth. Poor George! Maybe he needed a friendly bear.
Hope all is well K. (Mine is a bit odd, but I am kind of rusty.)
Thought I'd drop in too... here's my 55
well, if all the cool kids are here...
termites? no thanks ;)
hi G, Brian the birthday boy sent me
rock'n all the way to hell
I've wandered over from the poetry pub, too. Sorry my first entry here is so brutal, but I kept it at 55!
You know the drill by now, I too am a friend of Brian's and what a pleasure it is discovering you and your Flash Fiction! Here is my feeble first attempt, but it hopefully won't be my last!
Hi G-man, your place seems familiar. I might have come here before, but I'm here today because of Brian linking up to this, and I couldn't resist writing something for this myself.
This was interesting to read. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go fumigate all my cupboards and shelves - basically all things made of wood - because along with interesting, it was certainly a bit creepy! Well written :)
It's my first time here too; Brian sent me as part of his Flash Fiction mob.
Here's my first ever Friday 55, Bursting His Bubble.
Hi G-man, and greetings from Sweden.
Yet another friend of Brian's with my 55 :-)
And A wonderful consequence of wooden teeth
Wow, you've got a crowd today. Now, I really won't be able to sleep. I have to go brush my teeth and check for bugs.
Flash 55 - Blurred Vision
Hey G-Man I'm coming by way of Brian :-) My 55 is up. I'm not sure how people linked to their poem with pasted in the URL...please forgive my ignorance as I post the entire link :-)
Have a wonderful day.
I forgot to leave the link to my 55!
"Making an entrance"
This is my first time here, thanks be to Brian! You two must be astral twins. I must say, I love your flash fiction ode to wooden teeth.
We need those termites to return to the mouths of Washington today.
I wrote of humanities greatest characteristic today
Another Brian Buddy--Love the pic of George and the clever story. Gruesome thought, however.
Holy shmoly, look at all the people who have signed in!!! You are getting more popular each week, it seems, and no wonder, what with a 55 like this one about George and his woody choppers. I loved it, loved the drawing too. Thanks for the great laugh.
Road to Solitude
Hello g man
Must not be hard to bite on! those wooden teeth :)
In from dVerse courtesy: Brian. I see you are flooded.
I loved your termite story! And I still have to figure out how to leave an elegant link for you here.
Great tale, g-man. Tell Martha she can stop treating for crabs, by George!
Brain sent me:
At least he was never at a loss for a tooth pick! I'm G! :o)
So, here's my 55:
How hard to keep within the word frame. Afraid I needed a little cheating appendage :-) Good exercise. Thank you.My first effort is
Forgot to say: your teeth story made me worry about the woodworm we have in our beams :-) You pack a lot in just a handful of words.Dialogue too.
Hi G-Man. Birthday boy Brian sent me. Here is my 55 :)
Following the crumbs from Brian's birthday cake, and arrived here. What fun!
That's ingenious...termites for teeth!
Am back here after a long time...my link -
Ahhh. Back when dentures were wooden teeth...yikes!
My Flash 55 is up too :) Brian sent us all...blame him.
Flash Fiction Friday~55 Words | Vesper's Aria
Have a wonderful weekend!
. ..aww... pesky termites!!!... well, better than woodpeckers... lol.... hello mister... had a go with your hit 55... smiles...
On Winning Against Death
If only we could stick those termites in the mouths of more recently elected. Mine's up here.
Hi G man
First time here. My tale is about a bus ride.
Well, hello again, G-Man. Here is my "controversial" 55, as a tribute to you, your site, and Brian's birthday.
My poetic is called WIKIGENDERING:
Termites in Teeth, what an imagination. Smiles.
I have a 55 over at dVerse and here's another for you.
Great one...can't say I know anyone with wooden teeth but I do have a few false teeth stories! Here's my 55 written for Brian's prompt at dVerse. It's very fun to work with, though my story isn't "fun." Sorry I'm late for the party. I'm in PDT and always running behind it seems.
Here is my flashy!
Hi G-Man, Just another Flashy Fiction fan who jumped on Brian's birthday bus and ended up here ! Here's mine;http://cloudfactor5.wordpress.com/2013/08/23/meetingthebar-getting-tight-in-here/
Gosh, Galen, I just had to write another 55 for fun; two tanks & a couplet for this special day.
Brian sent me over from dVerse Poets Pub. So here I am to share my first "55" poem.
Silly me, G-Man, that would be two tankas & a couplet, with a title befitting it; TOGETHER http://bibliosity.blogspot.com/2013/08/together.html
Hi G! Oh, my I was not expecting that ending - it made laugh. Excellent!
I came over per Brian's invite. Here is my 55 word attempt. :-)
I wasn't sure how to do this...add mine to the list..a littlle fun with a push from Brian...
Here's mine! Sorry I don't know how to show my link.
75 comments! Whaddya need ME for?!? Still, I'm here, wooden teeth and all. ;-)
Quick, call a carpenter! What a fun, cool write. Great job! -Mike
Oh, here's my 55:
What a whimsical write. A lot of fun in 55 words...
smiles. i am glad to see so many rushed your door man. thank you for all you do pops.
My 55 is up :)
Joining in for the first time. I found your blog via Janaki's post.
Here's mine Reflections of my soul – I cried out
FOR BRIAN ON HIS BIG DAY
Only just noted it's your birthday
and that you wanted a quickie
(of words that is...)
so thought, what the hey
there are things I can say
You're the top, you're the best
the cream of the rest
and your lines are I find
so often more than kind
so here's to another good year!
(hope the title didn't have to be included in the word count 'cause the poem is 55 words bang on!)
Holy Cow. Came back to finish my commenting from last Friday and see I have my work cut out of me :)
Hi Galen....I am posting this a couple posts back because I don't know your email address. I invited Gabriella from Gabriella's Writing Corner to do a 55 for your blog this week. She'd never heard of it and was interested. I don't think you have commented yet....so I hope you will take a look and comment, as I told her you ALWAYS comment. LOL. (And please just delete this comment, as it was the only way I had to communicate with you) And do have a kick-ass weekend!! Thanks.
