It was only when he was counting backwards from 100 that he spied the certificate on the wall...Doctor of Veterinarian Medicine. He just hoped that he'd not wake up and find himself neutered!

Dentrified

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: den-tri-fied

Sentence: (no offense to Gloria Gaynor) At first I was afraid, I was dentrified. Kept thinking I could never live if I should open wide. But then I spent so many nights thinkin' how my gums went wrong and I grew strong, and I learned how to go along. And so I'm back, my teeth to brace, You just walked in and have no chin with that thing on your face. I should have changed my worried mind, I should have made you rinse your mouth if I'd have known for just one second you'd be drilling north and south. Oh no, not I, I'm dentrified. As long as I can rinse and spit, I know that I'll revive. I've got all my teeth to fill, I'll just take this little pill and I'll survive, I will survive -- hey, hey!

Etymology: dentistry: care of the teeth + terrified: extreme fright
