Listen Up, this may save your life one day.

I'm just getting over a nasty bout of food poisoning.
Ok, listen carefully, I don't care how bad the taste in your mouth may be, if all you have is orange toothpaste then use anything else. Baking soda, wesson oil, cat littler, it doesn't matter, all orange toothpaste will do is make a bad thing worse.

For your own safety, the cleanliness of your sink, and the cleanliness of your shoes, heed my warning. There is nothing in that orange toothpaste tube but concentrated sadness and the shrieks of dying bats.

Don't know about orange toothpaste, but as one just getting over a bad bought of the norovirus, I feel your pain. When you don't make it to the bathroom with the first heave and just give up and stand there puking on the floor for subsequent heaves because you figure it can't get any worse and you have a mess to clean up there anyway you know (or at least hope), you've hit rock bottom.

I'd consider killing that dentist and burying his body in the okefenokee swamp, where it will feed the alligators and bears and never be seen again, except as dung.

a flaming bag of the product of your food poisoning on his doorstep should probably do the trick.

Crest.
I had the food poisoning first. The orange toothpaste was salt in the wound.

Ah.

It's been many years since my bout with food poisoning but pretty much anything would would be salt in the wound. I distinctly remember having a strong wish to just die.

I prefer the bubblegum fluoride over the grape flavor just so you know.

Having just perused the toothpaste aisle just the other day, I have never seen an orange flavored toothpaste. But some Googling revealed the presence of Fresh Citrus Breeze Crest toothpaste. Huh.

Orange toothpaste. The very idea of it makes me want to hurl, so I can't imagine using it while already sick.

I disagree with and disavow all knowledge of all non-mint toothpastes.
