My dentist told me he had good news and bad news.
I said, "Give me the bad news first. Maybe the good news will cheer me up."
"Well, you need a root canal," he started, "and complete lower bridgework. It's going to cost about $3,000."
"Ouch!" I exclaimed. "What's the good news?"
"The good news," he beamed, "is that I shot a hole-in-one yesterday."
