Joke for Tat...

Tat, our Wendy's blogging friend was a little under the weather on Monday, so here's a joke to cheer her up!

A married couple go to the hospital to have their baby delivered.
Upon their arrival, the doctor says he has invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother's labour pain to the FATHER. He asks if they were willing to try it out.

They're both very much in favour of it.
The doctor sets the pain transfer to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% is probably more pain than the father has ever experienced.

But as the labour progresses, the husband feels fine and asks the doctor to go ahead and bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusts the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband's still feeling fine.
The doctor checks the husband's blood pressure and is amazed at how well he's doing. At this point they decide to try for 50%. The husband continues to feel quite well. Since the pain transfer is obviously helping out his wife considerably, the husband decides to go the whole hog and asks the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him.

The wife delivers a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband are ecstatic. The doctor's delighted with his invention.
The couple leave the hospital with their new addition....

When they get home, they find the milkman lying dead on the doorstep!

Hope you like it!

Oh you! As I said to Tat yesterday - what is it with the milkman/postman - he's always getting laid by housewives.

Tat, as long as it's brought a smile to your face, the job's done!
Enjoy your Tagine. L'Oiseau tried it and enjoyed it!

Wendy, it was your mention of milkmen on Tat's blog that reminded me of this joke.
I think in our neck of the woods, milkmen are safe because there aren't any left!

It's quite funny, Christine!

Ale, oooohh, Yes!

Cherry, I love this joke and when I tell it, I keep everyone in suspenders till the last sentence!

Gigi, to tell the truth, poor milkmen had such a bad (undeserved) reputation that they got replaced by supermarket cartons!

Hahaha. Well I laughed out loud! It's a great joke Cream especially as I think men would die if they had to have labour pains!! ;-)
