Country Doctor

A country doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby. It was so far out, there was no electricity. When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the laboring mother and her 5-year-old child.

The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see, while he helped the woman deliver the baby.

The child did so, the mother pushed and after a little while, the doctor lifted the newborn baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath.

The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what he thought of the baby.

”Hit him again,” the 5-year-old said. ”He shouldn’t have crawled up there in the first place!”

We’re out of town until next Monday. We’ll not be visiting or commenting until we return home.

    There is no end to humor isn't there. Just when you think you've heard it all someone comes up with something amazing in its creativity.

    As we birds tell it, a male comes out of a female as an egg and spends the rest of his life trying to get back in.
