    No Uh, what goy?

    So, Lee is at work one day.

    You know, he has the orthodontic practice there at Great Bear.

    It's for corrective bridgework in the mouth of one of his patents,

    Russell Krauss.

    The mold dries, and Lee is examining it one day

    before fabricating an appliance.

    He notices something unusual.

    There appears to be something engraved

    on the inside of the patent�s lower incisors.

    This, in a goy's mouth, Larry.

    He calls the goy back

    on the pretense of needling additional measurements for the appliance.

    "How are you?

    "Noticed any other problems with your teeth?"

    "No. "

    There it is.


    "Help me. " '
