Bubba and his pregnant wife lived on a farm which was way out in the country. There was no running water, no electricity, etc. It was a very basic country lifestyle.
One night, it was time for Bubba’s wife to begin delivering their baby, so Bubba headed off into the small nearby town and managed to get hold of the local doctor.
The doctor got into his car and together with Bubba they drove back to the farm, arriving just as Bubba’s wife began to give birth.
“What d’ya want me to do, Doctor?”, Bubba asked.
“Hold the lantern, Bubba. Here it comes!” the doctor said.
So the doctor delivered the child and held it up for the proud father to see.
“Bubba, you are the proud father of a fine strapping boy”.
Before Bubba could begin to say anything, the Doctor interrupted him, “Wait a minute. Hold the lantern Bubba, there’s another one coming”.
Soon the doctor delivered the next child.
“You’ve a full set now, Bubba. Say hello to your beautiful baby daughter”.
“Thanks be to…”, Bubba started to say and again the Doctor cut in, “Hold the lantern, Bubba, hold the lantern!”
Soon the Doctor delivered a third child.
The doctor held up the baby for Bubba’s inspection.
“Doctor”, Bubba asked, “Do you think it’s the light that’s attracting them?”
