More on the tooth fairy

Yes, the tooth fairy is truly the victim of unjust extortion. Yesterday we visited an old school friend of mine and the subject came up (Star was showing off her gap). She remembered the Mars Bar Index - the idea that you can measure relative inflation in chocolate bars, thereby eliminating monetary fluctuations. In our childhood, one Mars Bar cost sixpence, valuing the tooth fairy's payment at one Mars Bar exactly. Nowadays, the tooth fairy provides enough to buy around two and a half to three Mars Bars. QED. The tooth fairy is being unjustly treated.

The tooth fairy is now stepping off her soapbox ...
