Skunky Extraction

One day, Mrs. LaBeaver walks into a dentist's office
and asks how much it will cost to extract wisdom teeth.

"Eighty dollars," the dentist says.

"That's a ridiculous amount," she
says. "Isn't there a cheaper way?"

"Well," the dentist says,
 "if you don't use an
 anesthetic, I can knock
it down to $60."

"That's still too expensive," Mrs. LaBeaver says.

"Okay," says the dentist.  "If I save on
anesthesia and simply rip the teeth out
with a pair of pliers, I could get away with
charging $20."

"Nope," moans the Mrs. LaBeaver, "it's still too much."

"Hm," says the dentist,
scratching his head.
"If I let one of my students
do it for the experience,
 I suppose I could charge
you just $10."

"Marvelous," says Mrs. LaBeaver,
"book my husband for next Tuesday!"
