: Hereblow is part of a conversation between A and B:
: A: I beleive that he didn't do it.
: B: You can believe in the tooth fairly if you want.
: What does B mean?
It's "tooth fairy." One of the several imaginary beings children believe in -- like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. A child (in the U.S., at least) leaves a baby tooth under the pillow and the tooth fairy takes it and leaves money.
The speaker is implying that the other person is naive, believes anything anyone tells him.
