After their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that was enough, as they
could not afford a larger bed.
So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his 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, 'is 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 your ear and count to 10.'
The Alabamian said to the doctor, 'I may not be the smartest tool in the
shed, 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!
At which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and
continued counting on his other hand.
This procedure also works in Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Arkansas,
Mississippi, Parts of Georgia, Missouri, West Virginia . . . and All of
Washington DC . ________________
