You ever have one of those days where you’re reading the news on live television and your tooth falls out? If so, there’s a news anchor in Ukraine who feels your pain.

TSN reporter Marichka Padalko is both a journalist AND the proud owner of an artificial tooth!

Padalko lost half of a pearly white a few years ago after her 10-year-old daughter inadvertently knocked half of it out while playing with an alarm clock.

Padalko could have had it replaced by the finest dental experts in the Ukraine, but she apparently decided to save a few bucks at ‘Teeth for Less – MUCH Less” if video evidence is any indication of the quality of her surgery.

What do you do in a situation where you fail to catch the tooth and it lands on the ground? Is it ‘five-second’ rules like dropping a Life Saver or do you sterilize it first?

Padalko’s tooth is now back in her mouth and she is expected to make a full recovery. In honor of her bravery and courage, we present the following loving-tribute to “Mr. T” (NO, not that one).

Hammer and Nigel will have more on this important story in an upcoming broadcast of their show.
