CELEBRITY- Ali and His Gang Vs. Mr. Tooth Decay

Remember when Muhammad Ali could talk?
Remember when he was the greatest athlete of our century?
What about the time he fought Mr. Tooth Decay with the help of Ossie Davis and Frank Sinatra?

If your drawing a blanking on that last one, then you've never had the pleasure of hearing one of the most bizarrely amazing things he was ever involved with. 1974 brought us one of the most legendary vinyl records ever made, Ali and His Gang vs. Mr. Tooth Decay. The album features an A-list cast of celebrities all in rather ridiculous poses. Frank Sinatra, for instance, appears as a desperate ice cream vendor insisting Muhammad Ali force the gang of children that's following him (all orphans?) to eat ice cream. "No, kids! Ice cream hassa lotta sugah innit! Ice cream causes cavahtehs!"

Yet none of this holds a candle to when Ali, through song, brags about being the one who put the crack in the Liberty Bell! I can't help but think that what was once seen as a super human feat of strength in 74', would most likely be interrupted as an act of terrorism today. It makes one wounder why he limited his path of destruction to only America? He could have boasted to knocking off the nose of the Spinx in Egypt or leaning the Eiffel Tower with one blow.

To find out who comes out on top in this epic battle of hygienic proportions check out todays monumental postings. Also make sure to take a look at the completely absurd album cover galley. FIGHT!
