Re: Görges' Fans Chat Thread: Volume 1

Both Angelique and Elena Vesnina tweeted that they had their "curd teeth" removed a couple of days ago. In English we call them "wisdom teeth". Can someone explain the "curd" teeth phrase? Clearly in both German and Russian a similar word is used, or at least a word with similar meaning, but I don't understand what this has to do with curd. Is the idea that curd is "matured" milk?
