Have you heard about the dinner speaker who was in such a hurry to get to his engagement that when he arrived and sat down at the head table, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten his false teeth?
"Oh, no" he said, turning to the man next to him, "I forgot my teeth."
"Don't worry," the man replied, reaching into his pocket and pulling out a pair of false teeth, "Try these."
The speaker tried them. "They're too loose," he said.
"Here, I have another pair - try these."
"Too tight," the speaker said after trying them out.
The hospitable man was not taken back at all.
"Well, I have one more pair-why don't you try them?"
"Why, these fit perfectly," The speaker said, with much relief.
With that he ate his meal and gave his speech. After the dinner meeting was over, the speaker went over to talk with the man who had helped him.
"I want to thank you for coming to my aid. Where is your office? I've been looking for a good dentist."
The man replied, "Oh, I'm not a dentist. I'm an undertaker."
