>> Rachel: Oh hey again! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side and brush all the way around each tooth.
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush
>> Rachel: It’s Inventors Week, and today we’ve invented some brand new jokes to get you giggling. Here’s your first one:
Why was Antonio Meucci sad when he invented the telephone?
>> KIDS: WHY?
>> Rachel: Because he had no one to call!
Most people think a guy named Alexander Graham Bell is the inventor of the telephone, but that's not quite true. (SFX HUH?)
I’ll tell you more after you switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back.
Alexander Graham Bell is the inventor of the practical telephone. That means that he built the first working telephone. But Antonio Meucci came up with the IDEA for the telephone 5 years BEFORE Bell made his phone. So really, Antonio Meucci is the inventor of telephone!
Here’s your next joke:
Why did Willis Carrier invent Air Conditioning?
>> KIDS: WHY?
>> Rachel: Because he wanted to be cool!
Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth
Here’s another joke:
What was Nikola Tesla’s favorite dance?
>> Kids: What is it?
>> Rachel: The electric slide
Tesla is the name of a famous scientist and inventor. Nikola Tesla’s most famous invention is the Tesla Coil (SFX COIL) - a machine that can make lighting bolts!
Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and keep on brushing
Here’s one last joke before you go:
The Wright brothers were the first people to fly a plane.
So who were the first people to crash a plane?
>> KIds: WHO?
>> Rachel: The Wrong brothers!
That's it for Chompers today, great job brushing. Come back tonight for more inventive jokes! Until then, rinse with water before you
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit
