AFC Wimbledon and the case of the lost dentures

Christopher Lee

AFC Wimbledon found a pair of dentures in the stands on Saturday and used Twitter to find the owner.

There's nothing quite as heartwarming as a tale of loss and discovery. Everyone has enjoyed films and books in which something of value in a character's life is lost, a journey of some sort is undertaken and ultimately they are reunited with what they loss.

This classic bit of drama was played out today on Twitter when the official AFC Wimbledon account sent out this tweet.

Oh no! Lost teeth! I'm fortunate to still have my teeth permanently attached to my jaw but unfortunately for one reason or another, some people need fake teeth. I've lost my cell phone and my car keys. I've experienced the panic connected with the sudden realization that I've lost something valuable that I need. I can only imagine the terror of discovering i lost my teeth!

This story has a happy ending though as a few hours later the club announced that the teeth's owner, George, and his lost choppers would be reunited.

Yay for the power of social media!
