5:00 PM -- Yahoo News reports on a prankster dentist, boar tusks, and some photos that may (God willing) show up on eBay:

    An oral surgeon who temporarily implanted fake boar tusks in his assistant's mouth as a practical joke and got sued for it has ended up with the last laugh.

Hot damn -- who says dentists aren't any fun?

    Dr. Robert Woo of Auburn had put the phony tusks in while the woman was under anesthesia for a different procedure. He took them out before she awoke, but first he shot photos that eventually made it around the office...

    The backstory, the court wrote, is that Alberts' family raises potbellied pigs and that she frequently talked about them at the office where she worked for five years.

    Woo said his jests about the pigs were part of "a friendly working environment" that he tried to foster.

Woo's Idea of Fostering a Friendly Work Environment: "Yeah, we'll see how much she loves talking about those damn pigs after I turn her into one..."
