Redneck Birth Control
After having their 11th child, an Arkansas couple decided that enough was
enough (they couldn't afford a double wide). So, the husband went to his
doctor (who also treated mules) 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.
The doctor instructed him to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are legal
in Arkansas), light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his
ear and count to 10. The Arkansas man 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 Mississippi to get a second opinion. The Mississippi
physician was just about to tell them about the procedure for a vasectomy
when he noticed that they were from Arkansas. 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 other hand.
