As we enter the Age of Digital Humourlessness...

My friend-for-life
went to a splendid new dentist
whom I had discovered
earlier this year.
He duly filled in the form
to identify any medical problems
that would affect his treatment.
Under heart conditions
he wrote 'generosity',
since in the mean world
it can be a crippling defect.
Very gently, the dentist
asked him to erase it
and initial the crossing-out,
because, he gravely said,
no computer
has a sense of humour.
