First U.S. woman dentist graduated

In 1866, the first woman dentist in the U.S. to obtain a D.D.S. degree from a dental college graduated. Lucy B. Hobbs (Mrs. Taylor) was required to attend only one session beginning in Nov 1865 at the Ohio College of Dental Surgery because of credits allowed for previous practice.Being a woman, Hobbs had been originally turned down by many schools, but instead she trained in the office of Dr. Samuel Wardle. When first turned down by the Ohio Dental College in Mar 1861, since a license was not compulsory at the time, she successfully practiced dentistry in Cincinnati, Ohio. After the Civil War she moved to Iowa, and in Jul 1865, became the first woman elected as a member of a dental society, the Iowa State Dental Society.*

Fish Heads

A customer at Green's Gourmet Grocery marveled at the proprietor's quick wit and intelligence.
"Tell me, Green, what makes you so smart?"
"I wouldn't share my secret with just anyone," Green replies, lowering his voice so the other shoppers won't hear. "But since you're a good and faithful customer, I'll let you in on it. Fish heads. You eat enough of them, you'll be positively brilliant."
"You sell them here?" the customer asks.
"Only $4 apiece," says Green.
The customer buys three. A week later, he's back in the store complaining that the fish heads were disgusting and he isn't any smarter.
"You didn't eat enough, " says Green. The customer goes home with 20 more fish heads. Two weeks later, he's back and this time he's really angry.
"Hey, Green," he says, "You're selling me fish heads for $4 apiece when I can buy the whole fish for $2. You're ripping me off!"

"You see?" says Green. "You're getting smarter already!"
