Dental Humor

I couldn’t resist adding this one for the holidays. Its from “Medical Humor” Medical nonsense to tickle your funnybone by Thomas F. Shubnell. You can find it on Amazon. Be sure to check the ’search inside’ feature for a sneak preview.

A Plano, Texas, man goes to Dr. Marshall Johnson’s office, because of a throbbing pain in his mouth.

After a brief examination, Dr. Johnson exclaims, “My goodness, that plate I installed in your mouth about six months ago has nearly completely corroded. What have you been eating?”

“The only thing I can think of is that my wife made me some asparagus about four months ago with some stuff on it called Hollandaise sauce. I have to admit that it was delicious. I have never tasted anything like it. Ever since then, I have been putting it on everything.”

“That’s probably the reason,” replied the dentist, “Hollandaise sauce is made with lemon juice, which is acidic and highly corrosive. It seems as though I will have to install a new plate, but made out of chrome this time.”

“Why chrome?” the man asked.

Dr. Johnson replied, “Everyone knows that, there’s no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise.”
