One time when I was a TV reporter, a news photographer came to work with a pair of Hillbilly Teeth.  It was funny.
The news director sent out a memo later that day prohibiting the wearing of Hillbilly Teeth in the newsroom.  I guess he felt it was important to nip that in the bud before it got out of hand.
