After their 3rd child an Alabama couple decided that was enough.
As they could not afford a larger home, the husband went to his
veterinarian and told him that he and his wife didnt want to have any
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, 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 sharpest tool in the
shed, but I dont 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 rural areas of Tennessee, Kentucky , Oklahoma and West Virginia.
