A man goes 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, to which the dentist replies, "It's simple. Everyone knows
that there's no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise!"
