Fried Toothpaste

"Mama," my ten-year-old son said.  "I need some toothpaste."

"Okay."  I didn't think there was anything unusual about that request.  But then he added something else.

"And I need a deep fryer."

"What?" I couldn't imagine what kind of craziness he was planning in his overactive mind.  "Why do you need a deep fryer?"

"Because I want to see if toothpaste can be deep fried."

I looked at the kid.  "Why?"

"Because I saw a video on YouTube.  It said it could.  But I just wanted to make sure."

"Dude.  You are not deep frying toothpaste.  If it said it could be done, then just take their word for it. End of discussion!"

"But Mama . . . "

"No!"

So ladies and gentlemen, if you are dying to know if toothpaste can be deep fried, the answer is, "Yes."  Here's the video that proves it:

    "My teeth sunk into it and they were like, retreat."

    Thanks for the fun, post. Boogie boogie.

    1. Just finished. I laughed when he said, "I don't want hot boiling egg on my face."

      "Be a great way to go blind."

      "I lemon juiced all over my pants."

      Okay, back to paperwork. Thanks for the silly silly fun.

    1. And they'd probably say, "Why not?" And I'd say, "Because I'm the Mama, and I said so!" And of course then there would be no further questions. ;0)

  14. Well, now I know...this is probably why my son knows an enormous amount of useless knowledge...youtube. Now, I find myself looking around for stuff to deep fry.

    1. Haha! I wonder if this knowledge will ever prove useful in the future?

  15. Hmm, like you I think I'll take YouTube's word on this one. Not that taking their word makes me not want to try the cola/mint exploding thing.

    1. Those gloves completely cracked me up. I need a pair of blue gloves like that!

  17. I somehow found myself watching the whole video! I have had fried dough and fired chicken, but I have never had a fried candy bar or anything like that (I am afraid I will love them too much). I learned a lot about what can be deep fried and what can't. I don't know that I would want to brush my teeth with deep fried toothpaste. ;)

  21. I think I'll pass on the fried toothpaste. However, it is really cool and speaking of frying when I worked at a fish store it was always fun to fry your hand....After dipping it in batter first of course ;)
