Cajun Home Birth
Not so deep in the swamplands of Louisiana, a Cajun’s wife went into labor in the middle of the night.
The doctor was called out to assist in the delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, “Here. You hold dis high so I can see what I’m doing.”
Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world.
“Whoa there,” said the doctor, “Don’t be in such a rush to put dat lantern down. I think dere’s another one coming.”
Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a babygirl.
“Hold dat lantern up, don’t set it down, dere’s another one!” said the doctor.
Within a few minutes he had delivered a third baby. “Don’t put down dat lantern, it seems dere’s yet another one a coming!” cried the doctor.
The Cajun scratched his head in bewilderment and asked the doctor, “You tink it might be da light that’s attractin’ ’em?”
