I’ve been enduring a whole swathe of dental surgery lately. The following politically-incorrect joke gave me a chuckle…

A Scotsman phones a dentist to enquire about the cost for a tooth extraction.

“£85 for an extraction, sir”

The man replies “£85!!! Huv ye no’got anythin’ cheaper?”

“That’s the normal charge,” says 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 withoot an 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?
