After having their 11th child, an Alabama
couple decided that was enough, as they
could not afford a larger bed. So the
husband went to his doctor/veterinarian
and told him that he and his wife/cousin
didn't want to have any more children.
The doctor told him that there was a
procedure called a vasectomy that could
fix the problem but that it was expensive.
A less costly alternative, said the doctor,
was to go home, get a cherry bomb, light
it, put it in a beer can, then hold the
can up to his ear and count to 10.
The Alabamian said to the doctor, "I may
not be the smartest man in the world, but
I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in
a beer can next to my ear is going to help
me." "Trust me," said the doctor.
So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb
and put it in a beer can. He held the can
up to his ear and began to count: "1, 2, 3,
4, 5," at which point he paused, placed the
beer can between his legs, and resumed
counting on his other hand.
