ewww no, thats gross
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 2:35:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, yes it is. I've been doing some research to make sure I'm not a freak, and it turns out they are fairly common.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 7:52:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, never even heard of them before this
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 10:29:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, never but my brother constantly complains about his.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 11:52:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would think not, but I really don't know much about that. Still that would be gross.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 12:14:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't have tonsils, so no.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 1:56:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
ew no that sounds so gross
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 1:58:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
i used to get them alot. now every once and a while when i'm brushing my teeth, i'll notice one
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 3:19:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
HAHAHAHA!

I never knew what those were called! I used to get them all the time when I was younger. Man, they were NASTY. I haven't gotten them in years though. I wonder why? Maybe the pockets in my tonsils have smoothed out and aren't quite as deep?
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 3:57:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I never knew they were called that until now either. But yes, I sometimes get them.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 3:59:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't have tonsils! but that sound nasty! yuck!
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 4:30:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I had two when I was really young. I remember because I could feel something lodged in my throat and one day I managed to work them out. I remember them smelling pretty awful. I've never had them since though.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 4:31:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, no way.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 5:22:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
when i was little i used to get them but i haven't had them in years.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 5:58:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
i'm not sure...but i found something like that in my mouth one day. so technically, yea. EEEEEW! MEE GROOOOOOSSSS!!!
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 6:27:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, never even heared of them. Sounds disgusting though.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 6:29:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've never heard of those, but I don't have tonsils, so I doubt I will ever have them.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 6:30:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
So *that* what they are.

I aways though it was a little tiny compressed puke.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 7:39:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
i didnt know it had a name

i always thought it was mucus or something.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 7:44:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've never heard of them either. I also didn't know that tonsils have 'crypts', sounds like a appropriate place for those things to come from.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 8:19:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Eww! Never heard of that, but I am pretty sure I've never had those.
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 9:16:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
hmm i get those all the time because i have enlarged tonsils with big holes/crypts in them. food gets stuck in them and i have to get it out. if not they turn into the tonsils stones. its pretty weird and gross
12 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 6/29/08 - 9:17:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's sexy. And not as far as I know.

They do smell like death. I didn't notice I had crypts/huge holes in my tonsils until about the fourth time I had tonsillitis.
