One day a woman walks into a dentist’s office and asks how much it will cost to extract her wisdom teeth.
“$80,” the dentist says.
“That’s a ridiculous amount,” the woman says. “Isn’t there a cheaper way?”
“Well,” the dentist says. “If you don’t use an anaesthetic, I can knock it down to $60.”
“That’s still too expensive,” the woman says.
“Okay,” says the dentist. “If I save on anaesthesia and simply rip the teeth out with a pair of pliers, I could get away with charging $20.”
“Nope,” moans the woman. “It’s still too much.”
“Hmm,” says the dentist, scratching his head. “If I let one of my students do it for the experience, I suppose I could charge you just $10.”
“Marvellous,” says the woman. “Book my husband in for next Tuesday!”
One evening a reindeer walked into a busy lounge, bellied up to the bar and ordered a martini. Without batting an eyelid, the bartender mixed and poured the drink, set it in front of the reindeer and accepted the money from the reindeer’s hoof.
As he handed the reindeer some coins in change, he said: “You know, I think you’re the first reindeer I’ve ever seen in here.”
The reindeer looked hard at the small pile of change, scoffed and said: “Let me tell you something, buddy. At these prices, I’ll also be the last reindeer you’ll see in here.”
A housewife with three young children was getting dinner ready when the phone rang. The six-year-old picked it up and said: “Hi, Daddy!”
She began telling him about her day. She then passed the phone to her brother and sister as was the custom whenever Daddy called from work.
When it was finally the wife’s turn to talk she took the receiver and said: “Hi, honey.”
“Thank goodness, lady,” the voice on the other end replied. “I just called to tell you that the wallpaper you ordered is here!”
