"Cold are the hands of time that creep along relentlessly, destroying slowly but without pity -- that which yesterday was young. Alone, our memories resist this disintegration and grow more lovely with the passing years. That's hard to say with false teeth."
~Robert Dudley, The Palm Beach Story (1942)

Befell a most respectable Granny.

Her false teeth were there,
And she bit herself on the fanny!"

How I laughed at my Mother's false teeth,
As they foamed in the waters beneath,
But now comes the reckonin'
It's me they are beckonin'
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth.
