Flossed in Translation

A poignant and sardonic outlook on life, and its meaninglessness depicted through the medium of teeth.

The only exposed bone on the human body, we spend our lives maintaining them, making them as visually pleasing as possible. We spend our money going to annual check-ups to polish our teeth but not to check our organs are in full working order. Regardless of our efforts, they gradually waste away and become stained and decayed. When we die, they stay behind - a sad reminder of how hard we worked to stay immortal, and the truth is we needn't have bothered. Keep working hard for what you have right now (smile), because when you pass away, it will become as worthless and useless as your teeth – a lasting memento of your pointless existence.
