"If they can make it even half as good as the original Dumb and Dumber was, then it'll be the best comedy of the year."

Does this Twitter photo mean we get a new Dumb and Dumber?

Jim Carrey shared a photo of his (very real) busted fang on Twitter as he starts work on the follow-up to Dumb and Dumber. His costar Jeff Daniels confirmed the sequel in July, but the photo Carrey's broken tooth, a hallmark of his character Lloyd Christmas, is the irrefutable proof for many that Dumb and Dumber To (sic) is going in front of cameras.
