Dietrich Fischer – TRANSCEND Media Service

A student had just obtained his doctorate in mathematics and proudly checked into a small village hotel signing as “Dr. Smith”. In the middle of the night he was called to see a guest who was ill.

He protested, “But I am a doctor of Mathematics!” The hotel attendant pleaded, “I don’t care what your specialization is; just please come and help us!”

He never used his title in a hotel again.


At what time is your dentist appointment? At 2:30 (“tooth hurty”).


A man with a toothache went to see a dentist. The dentist examined him and said: “I will have to pull your tooth.”

“How much will it cost?” asked the man.

“Without pain, $10. With pain, $50.”

“OK,” the man said, “without pain then.”

The dentist got a plier and began to move the tooth back and forth to pull it out. “Ouch!!” screamed the patient.

The doctor said, “So that will be $50!”
