    No vocaine for Monty.

    BTW: Novo = new. caine = short form of cocaine. New-caine.

    Scenes like this make my dentures very comfortable. After countless weeks spent in the torture chairs enduring 12 root canals, 250 stitches for periodontal surgery, enough drilling to find oil and finally total extractions I can say I don’t miss going to the dentist one bit!

    Those measly expiration dates. Just because it says ’21 …

    Now Monty knows how Dustin Hoffman felt. One drop of Oil of Clove should work.

    That’ll teach him not to pay his last dentist bill on time.

    Most dentists have abandoned those fixtures for you to spit in and now have the assistant vacuuming out your mouth every so often.

    A woman is sitting in the dentist chair, all nervous and anxious, and tells the dentist. “I really hate this. I’d rather go through childbirth again than have a tooth pulled.” “Well, make up your mind so I know how to adjust the chair.”

    Went in for a root canal long ago and turned out – according to dentist – I had two roots for that tooth. Rare but does happen. But that meant when he went in to take out the nerve or whatever he only did it in one canal. And so for 2 appointments he’s jamming this thing into my tooth thinking it has no live nerve when it did. He’s like “This really shouldn’t hurt” while I’m basically like Monty in that strip. Finally he figured it out. Not fun.

    As many people pointed out to me in the past, novocaine has not been used for dental work in decades, because of its side effects. It has been replaced when lidocaine, then arcaine. Of course, that would explain why his is expired. :)

    Feel the drill, Monty! Novocaine is past its “use by” date, and you are at the mercy of the sadist err, …I mean, dentist!
