An old county doctor went away out in the boondocks to deliver a baby. It was so far away that there was no electricity.

When the doctor arrived, no one was at home except the labouring mother and her five year old. The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern up high so he could see while he helped the woman deliver the baby. The child did so, the mother pushed, and after a little while, the doctor lifted up the new born baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take breadth.

"Hit him again," the child said. "He shouldn't have crawled up there in the first place!!"
