A digression, in honor of Norwegian Constituion Day. What we have here is not a personified tooth, but Bactus the “tooth troll,” from a the classic Norwegian novel Karius and Bactus, come to life. Yes, it’s a human cavity troll, riding a truck float in honor of the University of Bergen’s Dentistry program, through the largest, most insane parade I’ve yet witnessed (this is another story entirely), waving what appears to be a pickaxe/tooth destroyer, at the crowds. And menacingly.
Sadly, I have not seen even one personified tooth dental sign in all of this city. But I did look.
