Laughter really is the best medicine – there’s nothing like starting the day with a good belly laugh. Shared joy is double joy, but there’s nothing wrong with guffawing away when you’re by yourself.

I found this funny story online earlier today – something my family found out right away as they heard me cackling from across the house.

I think a lot of you know that feeling of sitting in that damn dentist’s chair, waiting for it to just be over. I have to say I’m not a fan!

In any case – check out this hilarious story and make sure to send it on or tell it to your friends!

71 year old Gary had to go to the dentist to have a tooth removed.

He sits down in the dreaded chair and the dentist puts on the napkin. She walks over to a drawer and pulls out a huge needle.

Gary eyes the instrument warily and asks, “Uhm, what’s that for?”

She replies, “Oh, this is just the anesthetic, don’t worry about it.”

Gary shakes his head and says, “No way! No needles. I hate needles!”

The dentist shrugs, and instead starts to hook up the nitrous oxide instead.

Gary looks at the device and says, “No no, I can’t do the gas thing. The thought of having a gas mask on suffocates me!”

The dentist then asks Gary if he has any objections to taking a pill.

“No objection,” he says in a relieved tone, “I’m fine with pills.”

The dentist gives him a couple of pills. He swallows them.

“What are they?” he asks.

“Viagra,” the dentist replies.

“Heck,” Gary says, “I didn’t know Viagra worked as a pain killer!”

“It doesn’t,” says the dentist, “but it will give you something to hold on to when I pull your tooth.”
