Dear Casey Surgical Co.:

Regarding your Surgical Quick Release Arch Bar Kit used to pry apart the jaws of individuals whose braces have locked shut.

I'm curious if you've had any interest in this bizarre device. I had braces for over two years and they never locked; neither did the braces of my friends. I always considered that story of the boy and girl whose mouths locked together while tongue kissing to be boilerplate urban legend. Actually, I figured if it happened to me it would be less a hardship than a context for greater physical intimacy.

Anyway, your marketing material leads me to believe that instances of individuals vomiting with lockjaw is as commonplace as paper cuts. Do you have any statistics to bolster this? Do you have any testimonials from individuals who pry their jaws open with your product on a daily basis? Or is this some sort of hoax? I'd sure like to know.
