This is why you should tell your worries to a bartender.
So much for biting humor.
You looking a little down is of no great concern to a dentist.
They all look a little down in the mouth.
It’s the second dentist joke I see today. Is today a dentist’s day?
It’s the deep pockets that are causing concern.
Get a root canal. That’ll change your outlook.
Well if you weren’t concerned over the previous 8 years of anger, suffering, and division, then why worry now?
It’s important to keep your teeth in good condition so they can more readily identify your body…
Keep your teeth clean. That’s his floss-ophy.
Hey, maybe pig is a raging Anti-Dentite?
Actually, he makes a good point; take care of the things you actually have some control over. I used "actually twice in one sentence, that sorta sucks.
Hey, to a dentist, that IS a deep discussion.
If you’ve talked to a dentist often enough, by now you should know the drill.
I think the point of this may have been how some people are so focused on their physical self and fail to take notice of the world collapsing around them. Of course flossing is important to good health, but what good is health if the world we live in becomes largely uninhabitable? Of what benefit is a great smile when you can’t walk down the street without worrying about being harmed in some way? About 2000 years ago someone wrote these words from the Bible “But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power.” But after reading this, atheists and others will try to tell you how irrelevant the Bible is. They would have you believe that man will ultimately solve his own problems, just like they do in the movies.As the strip suggests, man and his governments are not having any success at solving the serious issues affecting us all. The “dentist” embodies all the people who prefer to stick their head in the sand and focus on mundane things, as if happiness depends on how white your teeth are and how big your bank account is.
I agree with Pig. They tend to make biting remarks!
I have a great dentist. If I can’t get an appointment with him I refuse to see another one because I would be passed onto the other dentist for good. It’s how our surgery works. I’d rather wait.
It is not wise to discuss politics with someone holding a needle, drill, or some other pointy thing in your mouth.
How timely! I got an e-mail from my dentist today “Happy Birthday and don’t forget to floss!”
(No kidding, it really happened!)
I once asked my NY ‘adopted son, the dentist’ a theoretical question; “If they find me face-down in the streets of some hick town in Florida with no ID, how do they use ‘dental records’ to find out who I am..(or was?) do they send out my ‘cast’ to all 110,000 dentists in the continental US??” The way things are going, the poor guy would have to hire another dozen ‘staff’ just to answer Criminal Investigations… I never DID get a straight answer, though he appreciated the new fireplace and twin engines for his power-boat “up at summer camp!” (My ‘out-of-pocket’ expenses)… Y’see, BC/BS is rather stingy in their dental plan, quite similar to something thought up in 1915 when ‘metal-fillings’ was quite the rage for the ultra-rich, willing to suffer “Marathon Man’s” ; “IS IT SAFE, YET?” Torture.. Rebuttals??
Sounds like Pig got the brush-off!
I have to do a mental floss after every presidential tweet
The chat’ll get deep when Pig can fly.
My dentist is actually quite a good conversationalist. —Except for that Dentist Thing, asking me about this or that while my mouth is wedged open with some serious tool poking about in it….
Payment to the dentist puts the “loss” in floss.
