A little boy was afraid of the dentist. So his father decided to set the example and have his teeth examined, too. The dentist looked inside the father’s mouth and said, “Oh, there’s a tooth there that has to be pulled.” The father asked, “How much will it cost?” The dentist answered, “We charge $55 a tooth.” Then the father asked, “How long will it take to pull the tooth?” The dentist answered, “A few minutes.” The father protested, “I get paid by the hour and when I think of paying $55 for a minute’s work, that is a terribly high hourly wage.” “Well,” the dentist said, “I can pull the tooth more slowly if you like.”

The late Jack Benny was a comedian whose joke lines were often about how much of a tight wad he was … One of his most popular jokes was about an armed robber who approaches Benny and demands, “Your money or your life!” Benny hesitates and says nothing. Finally, the robber says, “Well, what will it be?” To which Benny replies, “Don’t rush me, I’m thinking about it!”
