Bubba and his pregnant wife live on a farm way out in the country.
There is no running water, no electricity, etc. It’s a very basic country lifestyle.
One night, it’s time for Bubba’s wife to begin delivering their baby,
so Bubba heads off into the small nearby town and gets hold of the doctor.
The local doctor gets into his car and together with Bubba, they drive back to the farm, arriving just as Bubba’s wife begins to give birth.
“What d’ya want me to do, Doctor?”, Bubba asks.
“Hold the lantern, Bubba. Here it comes!”
The doctor delivers the child and holds it up for the proud father to see.
“Bubba, you’re the proud father of a fine strapping boy”.
Before Bubba can begin to say anything, the Doctor interrupts,
“Wait a minute. Hold the lantern Bubba, there’s another one coming.”
Soon the doctor delivers the next child.
“You have a full set now, Bubba. A beautiful baby daughter”.
“Thanks be to…”, Bubba starts to say, and again the Doctor cuts in,
“Hold the lantern, Bubba, hold the lantern!”
Soon the Doctor delivers a third child.
The doctor holds up the baby for Bubba’s inspection.
“Doctor”, asks Bubba,
“Do you think it’s the light that’s attracting them?”
