They'll really make an idol group out of anything, won't they? As if old men and radioactive girls weren't enough, now there is an idol group for girls with crooked teeth. To clarify: in Japan, there's been a recent trend where girls get their upper canine teeth capped by a dentist, making those two teeth crooked. It's called tsuke yaeba, and and supposedly it's thought to be cute.

Three eighteen-year-old girls -- Nana, Mio, and Rika -- were recruited from a dental clinic specializing in tsuke yaeba. Naturally, the group is named TYB48, because there's no way to be an idol group if you're not attempting to cash in on AKB48's name. The group's debut concert was in Akihabara on April 30, and if you're really into this sort of thing, you can buy their first CD, Mind If I Bite? I wish I was making that up.

Apparently the group's organizers hopes the group will skyrocket in popularity and encourage other girls to undergo the dental procedure. Damn you, Japanese dentists, for ruining people's smiles!
