Tooth Fairy Economics

Prices are on the increase...
which is an overused understatement.
The price of:
Gold is galactic
Gas is ghastly
Heat is huge
Cars are crazy
Starbucks is silly
And now....
The tooth fairy is far-OUT.
Have you heard?
The average price for a tooth from the tooth fairy is 3 buck$...
(Shut your front teeth.)
with some lucky kiddos receiving 
$5, $10, or $20 dollar bills.
I remember when the tooth fairy used to visit our house.
Her payout maxed out at a $1/tooth.
With three kids, loosing teeth...
there were a lot of teeth to be cashed in on. 
I’m still suspect about some teeth the tooth fairy found
under their pillows,
a few looked like “chiclets” to me.
The tooth fairy payout is up 15 percent from last year.
Could this be an economic indicator?
Heck, we had Reganomics...
and Obamanomics.
Why not Toothfairynomics?
With a 15% increase maybe the tooth fairy is feeling more optimistic about the economy?
Maybe she  is feeling like her fairy job is more secure than in past years?
Maybe she is trying to keep up with the
Jones's tooth fairy?

You know the Joneses...

It doesn't help that Junior Jones goes to school with his starched $20 ATM  bill
and flaunts it in the faces of the kids on the playground.
Nanny nanny boo-boo...
looky what I got from the tooth fairy.
So what’s a parent to do?
Apparently....Up the fairy ante.

I have a little hint for a kid whose parents are afraid to be “outdid”
by Junior Jones’s tooth fairy.
That kid should ride the tooth fairy guilt train as far as he can
and tell his parents.....
not only did Junior Jones find
one of these... 

Junior Jones also found 

one of these... 
 under his pillow.
