MOGADISHU: Residents of a coastal town in southern Somalia are living by the skin of their teeth, quite literally. Somali Islamist group al Shabaab is forcibly removing gold and silver teeth from residents in southern Somalia because it says they contravene the strict law of Islam, residents said on Monday.

Residents in Marka say al Shabaab has been rounding up anyone seen with a silver or gold tooth and taking them to a masked man who then rips them out using basic tools. “I never thought al Shabaab would see my denture as a sin. They took me to their station and removed my silver tooth,” resident Bashir said.

“In the station, I met several men and women whose dentures were being pulled out by a masked man they called a doctor. The doctor used a pincer or his gloved hand depending on the strength of the tooth,” Bashir said.

The group says the gold and silver teeth are used for fashion and beauty, which is against strict interpretations of Islam, residents said. Al Shabaab, which means “youth” in Arabic, is a Qaida-inspired outfit.

Well, damn. If that's what they do to the gold-toothed, wonder what they'd do to these platinum mouth havin'-ass niggas 'round here.

The Somalis are NOT fuckin' around.
