Old joke telling of a man’s ignorance
in relation to the child birth process,
around the woman, in all innocence.
I think mild enough not to give offence.
In late labour, she says “fetch the lamp, please”.
With that assistance, see baby emerge.
With the success, both parents put at ease,
until she, again, feels labour pain surge,
whereupon she says, “fetch the lamp husband”.
And shortly after she delivers twins.
Respite, but the labour begins again.
“Fetch the lamp, please”, once more she’s then asking.
But the man thinking there’s yet more, takes fright.
Says, ‘No’. They are attracted by the light.
