    Since toothpaste is harmful if swallowed, I fail to see the ‘harmless’ part of putting toothpaste inside an Oreo cookie. Or, for that matter, as icing on a cupcake.

      Julianne, Julianne, Julianne, Julianne. I love you. The most anyone is going to eat, and lets be serious, when they taste the toothpaste is one. Nobody’s going to die or this prank wouldn’t be uploaded. It’s meant as a funny joke and its actually hilarious to see it done. Love you Julianne, you care so much for all of us.

    I had a doctor’s appointment this morning. I felt a lot better when I left after the exam after saying April Fool’s!
