Though many dismal years, I’ve been To dull old Care apprenticed, Of smaller woes the worst I’ve seen, Is waiting for the dentist!
Dentist, n.: A Prestidigitator who, putting metal in one’s mouth, pulls coins out of one’s pockets.
Where does the dentist go when he leaves the room?
We always exempt ourselves from the common laws. When I was a boy and the dentist pulled out a second tooth, I thought to myself that I would grow a third if I needed it. Experience discouraged this prophecy.
A physician buries his mistakes, a dentist pulls them out, but a teacher has to live with them.
