Halloween is famous for occasional costume mishaps but an Alabama woman is taking things to a whole new level. She had bought a $3 pair of zombie teeth to complete her undead flesh-hungry costume. She used the glue that came with them to make sure the chompers stayed in place. Unfortunately, the glue worked a little too well.

Anna Tew explained that she tried to remove the teeth herself until 2 a.m. when she finally decided that she may need a little extra help. She found a dentist, Dr. John Murphy, who was able to see her the following morning to help her remove the teeth.

She explained to local news station WKRG:

"He talked about drilling. They had a saw, talked about taking them off in sections, and they couldn't numb it because they were scared they would actually pull my teeth out. So he went in and picked and pulled and I squealed like a baby and they got them out."

Dr. Murphy explained that the shape of some people's teeth and/or gums can cause these types of fake teeth to get stuck. Tew, for her part, said that she'll never wear fake teeth like these again.

People were amused.



Others seemed confused.



And most seemed to have assumptions about where she must come from.



It's probably never a good idea to glue anything into your own mouth.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories whenβ€”compared with nonconspiracy explanationsβ€”they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
