Move over, tooth fairy.
Retired U.S. Olympic champ Bryan Clay, former gold and silver medalist in decathlon (2008, 2004), implemented some unorthodox parenting techniques this week, posting a video on Twitter in which he removed his daughter's loose bottom tooth with, you guessed it, a javelin.
Before you ask any questions, a quick play-by-play.
The video begins with Clay brandishing his javelin. Quick camera pan to the left, where his daughter sports a half-grin. "Say goodbye to the tooth!" the person behind the camera says to her. She offers a bemused goodbye, we zoom out, and she proceeds to stake her claim as the toughest, presumably under-10 child on the planet as her dad lets loose a throw.
Her reaction is priceless. As another child goes to retrieve the tooth, Clay's daughter hits us with a high-level, stone cold punchline.
"Can I have water?"
Clay later confirmed that the tooth fairy would indeed be making a visit.
