A man went to his dentist because he feels something wrong in his
mouth. The dentist examines him and says, “that new upper plate I put
in for you six months ago is eroding. What have you been eating?”
The man replies, “all I can think of is that about four months ago my
wife made some asparagus and put some stuff on it that was delicious
. . .. Hollandaise sauce. I loved it so much I now put it on
everything — meat, toast, fish, vegetables, everything.”
“Well,” says the dentist, “that’s probably the problem. Hollandaise
sauce is made with lots of lemon juice, which is highly corrosive.
It’s eaten away your upper plate. I’ll make you a new plate, and this
time use chrome.”
“Why chrome?” asks the patient.
The dentist replies, “It’s simple. Everyone knows that there’s no
plate like chrome for the Hollandaise!”
