    Considering Novocaine didn’t show up for another 3 years—I’d sock the dentist, too!!! Tige was just protecting Buster!

    That’s hilarious…—when did Buster Brown decide to chuck his bad boy ways and decide to shill for children’s shoes?

    @ WSR: I’m wondering why the dentist didn’t administer Nitrous oxide and ether. The technology had been around since the 1860s; and, presumably, was sufficiently advanced enough that the risk would have been acceptable for the time.

    Before Novacaine, cocaine was used as a local anesthetic.
