    Look up Bill Cosby’s dentist monolog.

    How can you “feel” Novocaine?

    There’s no doubt you feel very well when you’ve been novocained…

    I remember the face of my dentist when he discovered, after the intervention, that I came to his cabinet with my motorcycle…
    Mind you, I didn’t consider that a problem at all, cool man…

    I had bad teeth most of my life and spent more time in the dentist chair than most anyone I knew


    Never liked Novocaine and had a dentist that was willing to compensate by turning the Nitrous Oxide gas up past the normal limits


    (I assured him that I had vast experience with altered states of consciousness)


    Don’t know how I looked in the dentist chair, but I felt about as loose as the guy in the cartoon today


    Without Novocaine I could still feel the pain, but with the Nitrous I didn’t care

    I remember taking my firstborn to the oral surgeon. Very nice waiting room – current magazines equally distributed between chick mags and guy mags. Most of the kids were of the hulking highschool type. Couldn’t figure out why people were called into the surgery but no one came out through the waiting room. I was starting to worry until my son was called in and discovered that there was a separate exit from the recovery room so waiting patients wouldn’t be frightened off by the sight of a 6’2" football player who looked like this guy being half carried out – half staggering out by his mother.

    yeah, the Halcyon the nice nurse gave me really helped. Last month, when a dude like the guy in this ‘toon staggered out like a bloody zombie, I got a lot of nervous laughter when I commented: "Well, it looks like some body’s appointment went horribly awry…"

    At 12, I had mumps. Later that year, I had impacted third molars removed under nitrous oxide. By actual photographic evidence, I had more swelling from the teeth.

    Is there a take home bag for the Novacaine?
