I Feel Sheepish

An veterinary orthodontist who practiced in Iowa was called one day by a frantic farmer in Australia.

“Help mate!” he cried, “I just got braces and orthodontic equipment for 100 of my sheep, and the local sheep orthodontist just died! I need a responsible animal dentist to come care for my flock!”

The orthodontist was moved, and a good price was offered, so he promptly flew to Australia for what he figured would be a week or two of work.

But he found that he was entirely unfamiliar with the orthodontic equipment the sheep had been given, and he spent a whole 6 months in Australia trying to figure out the foreign braces.

When at last he boarded a plane for home, after half a year of frustrating work, he sighed with happiness. “At last”, he said, “I’ll be seeing ewes in all the old familiar braces!”

  1. I am not going to dignify this with a scream.


  2. This sucked me in big time. I was trying to figure out how Iowa was going to be incorporated into the pun.


  3. I came across this recently, and # 21:

    21) We will still be annoyed by people who pun, but we will be able to show them mercy because punning will be revealed to be some sort of connectopathic glitch: The punner, like someone with Tourette’s, has no medical ability not to pun.

    reminded me of you.
