Becka is in the process of getting a crown on one of her teeth that broke recently. Since she's feeling a little down in the mouth, I thought she might enjoy being able to laugh at some things dental, if that is even possible, let alone appropriate at such a time as this.
Anyway, fools rush in....
A man who dreads going to the dentist decided to ease his tension by listing his name as "The Wimp." The receptionist read it, laughed, and assured him that many patients felt the same way. Half an hour later, the receptionist came into the waiting room. Looking directly at him, she said, smiling, "The doctor will now see the wimp." Three other people got up with him.
The Millers were shown into the dentist's office, where Mr. Miller made it clear he was in a big hurry.
"No fancy stuff, Doctor," he ordered, "No gas or needles or any of that stuff. Just pull the tooth and get it over with."
"I wish more of my patients were as stoic as you," said the dentist admiringly. "Now, which tooth is it?"
Mr. Miller turned to his wife and said, "Show him, honey."
A dinner speaker was in such a hurry to get to his engagement that when he arrived and sat down at the head table, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten his false teeth. Turning to the man next to him he said, "I forgot my teeth."
The man said, "No problem." With that he reached into his pocket and pulled out a pair of false teeth. "Try these," he said. The speaker tried them. "Too loose," he said.
The man then said, "I have another pair ... try these." The speaker tried them and responded, "Too tight."
The man was not taken back at all. He then said, "I have one more pair of false teeth ... try them."
The speaker said, "They fit perfectly." With that he ate his meal and then gave his address.
After the dinner meeting was over, the speaker went over to thank the man who had helped him. "I want to thank you for coming to my aid. Where is your office? I've been looking for a good dentist."
The man replied, "I'm not a dentist. I'm the local undertaker."
During an older woman's latest visit to her dentist — she was 65 years old at the time — he said, "Ma'am, your teeth are good for the next 50 years."
She replied, "That's great, but what will they do without me?"
A young dentist, who had just opened his dental practice, was dismayed when his mother told him she was embroidering a Bible verse to hang on the wall of his waiting room. "Mom, they usually don't put Bible verses up in dentists' offices," he explained.
His mother assured him that he would like it. And he did. The verse his mother had chosen was Psalms 81:10 — "...open your mouth wide, and I will fill it."
"Gratitude and godliness are inseparable." — Drew Conley
The big he-man admitted finally that, when he went to the dentist's office for a root canal, he lost his nerve.
