“Toothpaste before orange juice equals death”

Brushing one’s teeth with toothpaste and then drinking orange juice results in an unpleasant taste, but it’s usually not fatal. “Beer before liquor, never sicker” is an old saying; many tweets in December 2011 were:
 
“Beer before liquor, never sicker. Toothpaste before orange juice, dead.”
 
The new saying has been popular on Twitter and on several websites.
 
“Depression is the toothpaste to the sweet orange juice that is life” is a related saying.

Comment: I’ve been seeing these posts about using toothpaste before orange juice can kill you. (Toothpaste before orange juice, dead.) I think this is a complete myth, but I was wondering what the reason is for this myth coming about, and the truth about what it means. In a search engine I saw some things about chemical reactions from toothpaste changing the flavors of things like Orange juice, but how did this progress to death, and where did this originate from?
