Charlie, A man in his early 50s was visiting his dentist because he had developed a toothache. After X-rays were taken and the examination completed, the female dentist delivered the news Charlie feared. The tooth was severely infected and needed to be extracted.
As the dentist began to draw up some Xylocaine into a syringe, Charlie said, “No way!, No Needles! I hate needles”
She puts the syringe down and walks over and wheels the nitrous oxide tank over and again, Charlie pushes back, “No Way! I’m claustrophobic and the mask scares me.”
Getting frustrated, the dentist asks Charlie if he would be comfortable taking a pill?
“No objection at all, Doc. I’m fine taking a pill”.
The dentist leaves briefly leaves, returns and hands him a pill saying, “Here’s a Viagra”
Charlie, a little shocked says, “Wow! I didn’t know Viagra was a painkiller!”
“It’s not,” the dentist replied, “but it’s going to give you something to hold on to when I pull your tooth.”
Have a good Friday, everybody!
