    It's funny how sometimes a person's last name can match their occupation.

    I bet everyone who says something like "Oh, your name is Dr. Toothaker, and you're a dentist!!" to one of those people always thinks they're the first one to say it. And then Dr. Toothaker just smiles and pretends it's the first time he's heard it.
