Salvation Army Finds Gold Teeth In Collection Kettle

(kirotv) -- The Salvation Army has often found some odd items in its famous red kettles. But gold teeth? A worker tallying collections Thursday found a pair of golden molars in a plastic bag inside a kettle, said Maj. Darren Mudge of the nonprofit organization in York County.
"I have no clue what we are going to do with them," Mudge said. "It's a wonderful gesture, I guess." Less than two weeks ago, Salvation Army workers wondered if three golden rings placed in two kettles were generous donations or lost items. Mudge joked at the time that workers would keep checking for two more rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree. Then, two more golden rings appeared. Followed by 13 more. That's an unprecedented 18 so far this year.

I think I will keep my gold molar in my mouth. A pretty painful donation if you ask me. I guess they really gave until it hurt.
