>> Rachel: Good morning! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
It’s Mythical Creatures Week on Chompers. We don’t mean to toot our own unicorn horn, but we’ve got a few super silly jokes for you today.
Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and make sure to brush the inside, outside, and chewing side of each tooth.
>> KIDS: 3 - 2 - 1 BRUSH!
>> Rachel: Here’s the first one:
What did Cyclops say when he got new glasses?
>> KIDS: What do they say?
>> Rachel: Oh, Eye see.
According to legend, Cyclops were human-like giants with one single EYE in the middle of their head.
Switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush your molars all the way to the back.
We know now that the Cyclops isn’t real… but the legends about the cyclops probably come from people long ago, who found an ELEPHANT skull. They didn’t know what it was … so they made a guess.
A long time ago, people made up stories to help explain the world around them. These stories are pretend, but we still tell them today. These stories are called myths.
Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and make little circles around each tooth.
Ok, ready for your next joke? Here it is:
Why couldn’t the Yeti find a shoe that fit?
>> KID: Why?
>> Rachel: Because he had a -- Big Foot. Bigfoot, Yeti, Sasquatch, the Abominable Snowman - these are all names for beasts that supposedly walk the woods on two legs.
Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and brush your front teeth too.
Here’s another joke for ya:
What do you call a lost wolf?
>> KIDS: I don’t know.
>> Rachel: A WERE-wolf!
WHERE do we go from here? You know the drill….Give your mouth a rinse and say the magic words -
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
