Man is worried his head will fall off following dental surgery

Luckily he has a roll of tape to put it back on.

People who have dental surgery often have some pretty strange reactions to the anesthesia.

There was the kid who forgot how old he was, and the girl who was very upset to discover that she didn’t get a boob job. But if laughing at these children seems wrong to you, perhaps you’ll feel better laughing at a full grown man who is very worried that his head is going to fall off.

He’s actually slightly calmer than most people would be if they thought their head was about to fall off. Presumably that’s because he has a roll of tape to reattach it when it happens.

His wife soothingly and repeatedly tells him that his head is not, in fact, going to fall off. At first, it seems she has the patience of a saint, but then we discover that, at some point, she let him fall off the couch. Perhaps she’s just feeling guilty—although not guilty enough to keep her from recording the whole thing and putting it on YouTube.

And for that, we are thankful.
