Today, while brushing my teeth, a fly flew into my mouth. It got caught in my electric toothbrush and was sucked into the circular bristles, getting crushed between the brush and my braces. I now have fly guts and goo stuck between my brackets, and I can't get rid of the taste. FML

Hi, op here. Just want to clarify: The toothbrush is one of those circular, rotating tips. The "spinbrush," I believe. Second, I eventually cleaned out the bristles and got rid of the taste... in the morning. I slept with that taste lingering and it was horrible. This is just meant to clarify some things due to the lack of character space to type.

I think I would've been sick if that were me. appetizing as that sounds, you should probably get your hands on some mouthwash. Fast.

"There was an old woman who swallowed a bird, How absurd! to swallow a bird, She swallowed the bird to catch the spider, That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her, She swallowed the spider to catch the fly, I don't know why she swallowed the fly, Perhaps she'll die!" Such a strange children's song...

Really? It's a song? Ive always known it as a book. "The Old Woman who Swallowed a Fly".

You do know you cannot ingest bleach right? I mean how stupid could you be to not know that?

You know what grinds my bristles, flys in my toothbrush

I think I would've been sick if that were me.

I am sorry that happened to you, but I have to ask... What does it taste like?

Probably salty, or most likely coppery due to the copper traces in their blood

It tastes like vomit. It's really gross.

Bitter beyond belief. I once ate one that got frozen in an ice cube. No flavor complexity, just intense bitterness.

That's... Pretty gross; have some strong gum, or try some mouthwash. Hopefully that should wash out the taste!
