Smile Today - 5/16

Annie Deighnaugh

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!"

I think my neighbor is stalking me as she's been googling my name on her computer. I saw it through my telescope last night.

Not to drone on ...

... but ...

... back in the days of delivery by stork, they didn't come barely as nature made 'em, it appears.

Nice to have 'em arrive with the beginnings of a wardobe.
