  • A man gives a mom a serpents tooth, that when worn, makes everything she says come true

    This is a very cool episode, where a mom kind of gets revenge by saying things like "if you keep sticking your tongue out, it will get frozen that way!" And with the power of the tooth, it happens. Sadly, the mom becomes kind of corrupt by the power and accidentally dooms herself when she says something about her when she is wearing the necklace. Once again, the mom didn't deserve what she gets in the end and it is all an accident. I know it is supposed to be creepy, but if this really happened, I guess the kids didn't really like her. The even more weird thing is that the mom didn't care about what she turns into, just that her kids are finally well mannered.
