A married couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered.
Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that
would transfer a portion of the mother's pain to the father. He asked
if they were willing to try it out? They were both very much in favor
The doctor set the transfer dial to 10% for starters, explaining that
even 10% was more pain than the father had ever experienced before.
But as the husband felt fine he asked the doctor go ahead and bump it
up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine up to 20% pain
transfer. The husband was still feeling fine. the doctor checked the
husband's blood pressure and was amazed at how well he was doing.
At this point they decided to try 50%. The husband continued to feel
quite well. Since it was obviously helping the mother considerably,
the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The
wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her
husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the mailman was dead
on their porch.
