Adult belief in the Tooth Fairy has steadily increased over the last decade to the point where a solid third of the populace is convinced they are in a direct, personal relationship with her. They turn to her for advice on buying a car and on how long they can put off shoveling the walk.

These believers also feel this relationship gives them the authority to determine whether the rest of us are overpaid layabouts who don't deserve the puddle we sleep in.

This segment of Americans is also convinced the Tooth Fairy tells them to force the rest of us to eat irregularly shaped glass shards as penance for our doubts.
