The Country Doctor
An old country doctor went way out to the wilds to deliver a baby. It was so far out in the wilds that there was no electricity.
When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the labouring 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.
The little boy responded: "He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place. Spank him again."
