Not exactly placebo controlled

Today I had a root canal on one of my teeth that had been giving me some trouble for about a week now.  While I was in the dentist's chair, they had Fox News playing on the TV.  Now the root canal was no picnic, I can still feel them pulling the nerve tissue out of my tooth (OUCH!) but once it was all said and done, I managed to tell the dentist that I appreciated a head-to-head trial of a root canal vs. Fox News to determine which one was worse.  He laughed and asked if they were neck in neck.

My response?  It was the root canal by a hair, but only because the sound was muted on the TV.

They should've given you a discount if they were gonna force you to watch FOX "News."
