The Toothpaste Experiment

Spider-Man ExperimentThe subject of “eating” toothpaste came up in our house this morning. The reason why isn’t important, but what happened afterward, is…

Dave said to me, “I remember eating toothpaste as a child once. There was a series of events that led up to this.” At this point, he had to wait for me to stop laughing hysterically before he could continue.

Here were the “series of events” that led up to my husband eating toothpaste at some point in his childhood:

1. Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider and then became Spider-Man
Yes, okay, I’m up to date on my Spider-Man knowledge. Keep going…

2. Fluoride is slightly radioactive
Wait. He was old enough to know this (who knows things like this?), but not old enough to know that eating toothpaste wouldn’t turn him into Spider-Man? I question this logic.

3. Toothpaste has Fluoride
I see where we’re going here…

4. Therefore, Dave chose to eat toothpaste
My husband is, and always been… very logical.
