In the Teeth of Humor

This morning, the Court heard argument in North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners v. FTC, an important and fascinating state-action antitrust case featuring Hashim Mooppan’s impressive debut at One First Street. But perhaps the most remarkable feature of the case is that it has spawned so much tooth-based wordplay. Here’s a sample, for your amusement:

  • USA Today: “For Supreme Court, dental case is like pulling teeth”
  • Reuters: “Supreme Court justices chew on teeth-whitening dispute,” which opens: “The U.S. Supreme Court may have bitten off more than it can chew in a North Carolina case….”
  • WSJ: “Smile and Say Price-Fixing”
  • Boston Herald: “High Court has chance to put teeth into free market”
  • National Law Journal: “High Court Drills Dental Examiners Board”
