A Visit To "My Milk Toof"

We at Needcoffee like to point out fellow content creators that fill the Internet with more than just mail order pharmacies, mail order diplomas, and mail order Russian brides (although Russian brides that came with a diploma...that's an untapped market). In the past, I have thrown at you alien invaders from Mercury, sci-fi janitors, and Isabella Rossellini curating artistic animal erotica.
Now, I am going to tell you about teeth. Specifically two milk teeth.
The artist responsible for these young teeth is Inhae Renee Lee. Her blog is called My Milk Toof and that's where she chronicles the adorable adventures of the two baby teeth in her charge, ickle and Lardee. Here's what she has to say for herself:
Inhae Renee Lee is an artist working in Berkeley, California. After moving from Korea to America at the age of 16, she became interested in pursuing a career in animation. She studied at the California Institute of the Arts and École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris. She is currently a full-time blogger and the caretaker of two little teef.
As to her charges, again her words do better than I could.
ickle (right) is a smart and curious toof who loves to read books. Other interests include cutting coupons, nibbling on furniture, and David Bowie. Lardee (left) is the loveable, slightly pudgy toof who can be found following ickle around the house. If in need of a toy, Lardee has a magical red bag with an endless supply.
What I find so attractive of these stories is their universality. Yes, they are two tiny talking teeth but they are also little kids with big imaginations and trying to function in the outsized worlds of grown-ups.
For example, in "Toof Cleaning," what parent hasn't gone through the same ritual of bath time with a young child.
"Art of Lardee" is nice because it shows how little children are capable of seeing or in this case, painting outside of the box.
And of course, what childhood is complete without a pet. In ickle's and Lardee's case, a traveling goldfish called "Carrot."
If you enjoy these tiny adventures, she released a book called, naturally, My Milk Toof and can be ordered through Amazon. So visit the blog and help support original content on the Internet. Especially the cute content.
