An old country doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby.
He traveled so for the use of electricity just did not exist. When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the pregnant mother and her 5-year-old child.
The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern 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 the newborn baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath.
The doctor turned to the 5-year-old and asked, What do you think about the baby?
"Hit him again Doc," said the 5-year-old, "he shouldn't have crawled up there in the first place!"
