A man took his pregnant wife to the hospital. The doctor looked her over and told them it would be a rather difficult delivery. He offered to let the couple try an experimental procedure. The woman would be connected to a machine that would transfer part of the pain to the father of the baby, thus reducing her own. The man quickly agreed.
The doctor warned him, though, that there was a slight bug in
the machine that caused itto amplify the pain sent to the father by ten
times, and if the pain became too much for him to bear would he please
let the doctor know.
The doctor turned on the machine and
watched the man. The man said he felt absolutely fine and he could take
more. The doctor turned the dial up to 40, 60, 80, and finally 100% of
the pain, times ten. The woman delivered the baby painlessly and
thedoctor stared at the man, astonished at how he could not even flinch
with that much pain brought upon him.
The couple took the new baby home.
When they gat home, they found the milkman dead on the sofa.
