An extraordinarily handsome man who was also rather conceited, decided he had the “God given” responsibility to marry the perfect woman, so they could produce children that were beyond comparison.
Having made this his mission in life, he began searching for the perfect woman.
After a long but fruitless search up and down the East coast, he loaded up his car and started to head out West.
Shortly after, while driving through the Midwest, he met a farmer who had three stunning, gorgeous daughters that positively took his breath away.
So he explained his mission to the farmer, asking for permission to marry one of them.
The farmer simply replied, “They’re all looking to get married, so you definitely came to the right place. Look them over and select the one you want”.
So, the man dated the first daughter.
The next day the farmer asked for the man’s opinion.
“Well”, said the man, “your daughter is really beautiful, but she’s just a weeeeee bit, not that you can hardly notice, pigeon-toed”.
The farmer nodded and suggested that the man date one of the other girls.
So, the next evening, the man went out with the second daughter.
The following day, the farmer again asked how things went.
“Well”, the man replied, “She’s just a weeeee bit, not that you can hardly tell, cross-eyed”.
The farmer nodded and suggested that he date the third girl to see if things might be better.
So the man did and the next morning the man rushed in to the farmer, exclaiming, “She’s perfect, she’s a ten, just perfect! She’s the one I want to marry!”
So the extraordinarily handsome man and the farmer’s stunning, gorgeous daughter got married practically right away.
Some months later the baby was born.
When the man visited the nursery, he was horrified.
He expected to see the cutest most amazing baby in the world, but instead, what he found was the ugliest, most pathetic looking tiny human that you can imagine.
He rushed to his father-in-law, asking how such a thing could happen, considering the parents.
“Well”, explained the farmer, “she was just a weeeee bit, not that you could hardly tell, pregnant when you met her”.
