Giant Wind-Up Teeth

Strange looking giant wind-up teeth on the chimney of a children's dentist. This really catches your eye while driving by on Harlem Avenue.

[Vinny Gragg, 12/18/2013]

The wind-up teeth -- each over a foot tall -- arrived in early June 2013, and by mid-October a contest had officially named them "Prince Chomping."
