A Texas man is today fighting for his life after being shot by his best friend whilst flossing his teeth.
A leading manufacturer of dental floss sticks claims on their packaging that the floss in their sticks is super-tough, as it is made from the same fiber used in bullet proof vests.
Chuck Bush, 39, decided to test the claims of the manufacturer by having his life-long friend, Ralph, shoot at him whilst flossing his teeth.
Police at the scene reported that even if Mr Bush survives his injuries, he will probably require considerable reconstructive dental work to restore his previous happy-go-lucky, boyish smile.
The manufacturer of the flossing sticks is hastily re-wording the claims that they make about their product to make it clear that it will not protect customers against actually being shot whilst flossing.
