New Flossing Haikus!

Here's a collection of new flossing haikus from Daniel English who lives in Upstate New York.
Dan reports that once he got going, it was hard to stop.
Thanks, Dan!

K.C. ribs ‘n fries,

Fallow fodder for flossing,
Followed by a brush…

I climbed the mountain,

The meaning of life to find.
“Floss!” was all he said.

Whiter than fresh snow
Lies floss against my cuspid.
Dracula flossed, too.

Caries, my burden.
Rue the day I tossed the floss
Underneath the bus.

Still trying to get past the bug that keeps this blog from being listed among Google blog alerts.
Flossing is great.
I have a google alert for floss & flossing. This blog hasn't shown. Any others see it mentioned in a google alert?

When will an entry here on floss or flossing get to Google alerts?

Flossing is great!
Floss is useful for cleaning your teeth and a 1001 other tasks.
There could be a McGiver show just built around floss!

Here we go again.
Sorry for the delay in really posting about floss and flossing, but something important is missing from this blog system.
We'll have to wait another day or two to see if it starts working.

Floss, Flossing

This is a duplicate of a recent post - the test is still underway. Google alert has been notified.
Real posts soon.

Floss is great!
Flossing is important!
These things are certainly true, but this post is actually a test.
As yet, this new blog has not been picked up in a google alert for floss and flossing.
This post is aimed at baiting the google alert system into listing it.
Once fully active, we will make a huge announcement of international flossing importance right here.
In the meanwhile, check
More soon!

Why, you may ask?

Does anyone suspect chronic infections help people live longer?
