The Scotsman and the Dentist

Well, holding to the unbloggish principle that if you have nothing to say you should say nothing, yet aware that when people visit the blog they get ticked off when there have been no new posts for a week, I'm posting something funny.

A Scotsman asks the dentist the cost for a tooth extraction. "$85 for an extraction sir," was the dentist's reply.

"$85!!! Huv ye no' got anythin'cheaper?"

"That's the normal charge," said the dentist.

"Whit aboot if ye didnae use any anaesthetic?"

"That's unusual, sir, but I could do it and knock $15 off."

"Whit aboot if ye used one of your dentist trainees and, still without anaesthetic?"

"I can't guarantee their professionalism and it'll be painful. But the price could drop to $40."

"How aboot if ye make it a trainin' session, ave yer student do the extraction with the other students watchin' and learnin?"

"It'll be good for the students," mulled the dentist. "I'll charge you $5. But it will be traumatic."

"Och now yer talkin' laddie! It's a deal," said the Scotsman. "Can ye confirm an appointment for the wife next Tuesday then?"
