"The Punch Line" by Jared Yates Sexton

I came across this short piece at Juked and it caught my eye because I have my own "Punch Line" story at MonkeyBicycle.  Then I decided to share it because I love the way that Sexton (who, by the way, is the editor of Bull, a literary magazine tailored to men) ratchets up the tension throughout, and I like the interesting way he uses the term, punch line.

Also, I can't stand laughing gas, absolutely can't stand the idea of being out of control in a dentist's chair, so this story freaked me out enough to enthrall me.
