THE TEETHING TALE
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
South Dakota has been known throughout history as a rough and tough
town full of gunslingers and banditos. However, there is a tale that
began many years ago that the residents there use guns as teething toys
for their babies. The tale has been told from generation to generation
as was told as a true story that just seemed to catch on.
story goes, a lady was busy with her household chores as she noticed a
drifter walking toward her home. During these times, many of these
drifters would rob and take advantage of any woman that was home alone.
She was aware of this fact and grabbed her husband’s gun.
When she grabbed the gun, she noticed that it was not loaded but before
she could do anything, the drifter just opened up her door and walked
in. He did not knock or make a sound of introduction at all. She
dropped the gun, which landed in the baby’s crib and began
her best to fight off the drifter.
drifter noticed there was food prepared on the table and he went over
to grab some when he glanced over at the crib. There he saw the baby
chewing on the handle of the revolver. The drifter became white as a
ghost and ran out of the door faster than he had come in.
is how the legend began and it seemed to fend off many drifters that
had a notion to rob and steal from anyone in Deadwood since they let
their babies’ teeth on guns.
