Kid Proves The Tooth Fairy Isn't Real With Some Very Clever Detective Work

Do you remember when you figured out the Tooth Fairy wasn’t real? I’m sorry if it just happened when you read that opening sentence. It’s true, the Tooth Fairy isn’t real. It’s just a fun way for adults to buy children’s teeth. Being a parent is hard, you gotta get your kicks where you can.

Twitter user @RogueDadMD announced to his followers that his 9-year-old son had ruined his fun by figuring out the lie through some incredible deductive reasoning:

This kid is a little Sherlock Holmes, but for dentistry.

Some people wanted to know why they didn’t cover their lie with more lies, but they cracked under pressure:

And a few people had questions about how the kid got away with this tooth hiding:

There’s other tests ahead for our detective. For example, can he keep a secret?

Naturally, the kid has already made some mental leaps with this discovery:

Whoa, this is getting deep. And an interesting study into “ruining stuff” traditions:

There were a few people who disagreed with the kid’s scientific methods. They didn’t go far enough:

Then someone pointed out this is exactly what scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson encouraged his kid to do to uncover the mystery of the Tooth Fairy—test your subjects.

A deduction worthy of a world-renowned scientist. But you forgot one thing kid.

Now that you know there’s no Tooth Fairy, you don’t get the $ $ $ .

A real genius would have kept milking his parents for cash until all their baby teeth were good and gone.

These Parents Wrote The World's Funniest Letter From The Tooth Fairy

Henry Warren’s son Sam recently lost a tooth, and Warren decided the tooth fairy needed to respond in a way that encouraged his son to get better at dental hygiene. The resulting letter will prepare Sam for a lifetime of dealing with dodgy gym membership contracts.

After the ingenious letter went viral on Twitter, Henry Warren spoke to BuzzFeed about Sam’s reaction to the tooth fairy’s correspondence. Apparently, Sam was “rather chastened,” but “one is never too young to be exposed to petty bureaucracy.” After all, the Warren family is British, and it apparently is the British way.

“Whilst the tone may have come across as a touch harsh, we think people should take the time to appreciate how hard it is being a tooth fairy in Theresa May’s Britain,” said Henry. “The Department of Tooth Fairies (DoTF) has not been immune to austerity. Barry’s hours are long, the pay is poor, (the free dental is obviously a plus) but overall it’s a tough gig.”

“We’re sure that Barry was just processing the tooth through the proper channels,” Henry said. “He’s a stickler. One has to be these days.”

From the Twitter response, it seems like Henry is inspiring other parents to take similar action. Pity the poor children who will get similar letters from pedantic tooth fairies in the future.
