"The Dentist and the Crocodile"

Information   Plot/Description


Information


Plot/Description

Spoiler Warning! A dentist is petrified when a crocodile plops down in his office and requests to have his teeth repaired. "I want you," the Crocodile declared, "to do the back ones first." He opens his huge jaws to show at least three hundred sharp white pointed teeth. The dentist stands two yards away and tries to use a long probe to check for decay. The crocodile tells him that he's too far away and that he needs to put his head down inside the Croc's mouth. The dentist weeps in despair and says he's close enough. Just then a lady bursts in and admonishes the Crocodile for playing tricks again. The dentist is hysterical and screams that the Crocodile will eat them all. "Don't be a twit," the lady said, and flashed a gorgeous smile. / "He's harmless. He's my little pet, my lovely crocodile."
