The Teething Tale


THE TEETHING TALE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


Deadwood, 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.

As the 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.

The 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.

This 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.
