I thought this was a pretty damn fine article on CNN.
Government lawyers tried to remove and confiscate the gold dental work known as "grills" or "grillz" from the mouths of two men facing drug charges.
How awesome is that? And I thought "forfeiture specialist" Richard Troberman was being a little disingenuous with this statement:
"It sounds like Nazi Germany when they were removing the gold teeth from the bodies, but at least then they waited until they were dead," he added.
I might be mistaken but I think the "grills" fad is unnecessary dental work. The picture on the CNN page seems to confirm that. Isn't the message of a grill "Hey I'm so fucking rich I can chew my food with platinum and diamonds?"

Of course this also brings up some of my favorite rap lyrics of all time from Lil' Flip.
And I make - nothin but hits when I step in the booth
And I make - rainbows from the sun reflect off my tooth
