I saw a case of what were marked as unissued toothbrushes at my local pawn shop today. I can't be sure because the guy wouldn't let me open the box. I am going back tomorrow and buy it if it is still there. I am going to make a mint on brushbroker.

The listing is immature to say the least.

3 years from now you'll be kicking yourself, saying you should have bought those toothbrushes when they were cheap, and before the market for used toothbrushes took off. Once China cuts off our supply, the prices will skyrocket, and them that can't pay the price will soon look like they're from England!

No mouth or tooth Erosion gages from the CMP yet. I don't know if I can trust the off brand. They read high in unissued toothbrushes.

I'm thinking this was a bar bet.
CMP employee #1; do you really think those goobers would bid on cosmoline soaked rags?
CMP employee #2; heck yea, they'd even bid on those trashed out toothbrushes you guys keep pulling out of the stocks. They bought that rusted up Garand receiver didn't they?
CMP employee #1; no way!
CMP employee #2; I'll bet ya 20 bucks. I'll get ghost to put them on the auction and further more I'll double the bet and you win if they don't sell for over $20.
