Sent by my good friend John, and a reflection on Southern humor which, since I live in Tennessee and was born in Georgia, I feel perfect license to enjoy and share... with the disclaimer, yes I know that there are smart people in the south too, I am one of them.
After having their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that
was enough (they could not afford a larger double wide). So, the husband
went to his doctor (who also treated mules) and told him that he and his
wife...er 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. The doctor instructed him to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are
legal in Alabama), 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, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is
going to help me. So, the couple drove to Georgia to get a second opinion. The
Georgia physician was just about to tell them about the procedure for
a vasectomy when he noticed that they were from Alabama. This doctor
instead told the man to go home and get a cherry bomb, light it, place it in a
beer can, hold it to his ear and count to 10.
Figuring that both learned physicians couldn't be wrong,
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
This procedure also works in Tennessee, Louisiana, Kentucky
and West Virginia.
