Say Cheese!

Jane Brown walked in to the dentist office to make an appointment. “How much do you charge to pull out a tooth?” she asked.

“It’s $130,″ was the prompt reply.

“$130!” gasped Jane, “that’s ridiculous! There must be a way for you to go cheaper.”


“Well,” said the dentist thoughtfully, “I suppose if we don’t numb it, we could knock off $30.”

“Only $30?” countered Jane, “that’s still $100! You’ve got to make it cheaper.”

“Well,” said the dentist after a long pause, “I suppose if we take it out with a wrench we could knock it down to $50.”

“Perfect,” said Janehappily. “I would like to make an appointment for next Tuesday, for my husband John.”
