OUT­BACK den­ture man­u­fac­turer Adrian McCarthy has had peo­ple turn up at his mo­bile clinic with their bat­tered old dentures held to­gether with wire. He’s seen it all. He calls him­self the Den­ture Ad­ven­turer and he trav­els any­where and ev­ery­where with his mo­bile work­shop mak­ing ‘ falsies’ for clients whose ‘ chom­pers’ have long since bit­ten the dust. There is no sand dune, no bog hole or dry gully that will stop the Den­ture Ad­ven­turer reach­ing bush res­i­dents who need a new set of gleam­ing, white ‘ falsies’. And last week in Win­ton who should turn up at his clinic but the CrackUp Sis­ters, Twiggs Ruth and ST Ruth ( pic­tured). The Crack­Ups are a com­edy act which com­bines cir­cus rou­tines with just about any­thing else. They love Win­ton so much they bought a house there and use the town as a base for their show which takes them all over Aus­tralia. They have just done the Big Red Bash at Birdsville and the Be­dourie Camel Races. And, no, in case you are won­der­ing, they weren’t get­ting new sets of “mas­ti­ca­tors” from the Den­ture Ad­ven­turer. They just thought it would like a good op­por­tu­nity to do what they do best — have a bit of fun.
