For many of us, getting news on the birth of your child is exciting and exhilarating.

Maybe not so much for this guy, who after hearing other men’s circumstances ended up on the floor when he realized what it meant for him.

This is crazy!

When He Heard How Many Babies His Wife Had, It Was Over!

Four expectant fathers were in a Minneapolis hospital waiting room, while their wives were in labor.

The nurse arrived and announced to the first man, “Congratulations sir, you’re the father of twins.”

“What a coincidence,” the man said with some obvious pride. “I work for the Minnesota Twins baseball team.”

The nurse returned in a little while and turned to the second man, “You sir, are the father of triplets.”

“Wow, that’s really an incredible coincidence, ” he answered. “I work for the 3M Corporation.” My buddies at work will never let me live this one down.

An hour later, while the other two men were passing cigars around, the nurse came back, this time she turned to the third man – who had been quiet in the corner. She announced that his wife had just given birth to quadruplets.

Stunned, he barely could reply.

“Don’t tell me another coincidence?” asked the nurse. After finally regaining his composure, he said, “I don’t believe it, I work for the Four Seasons Hotel.”

After hearing this, everybody’s attention turned to the fourth guy, who had just fainted, flat out on the floor.

The nurse rushed to his side and after some time, he slowly gained back his consciousness.

When he was finally able to speak, you could hear him whispering repeatedly the same phrase over and over again.

“I should have never taken that job at 7-Up. I should have never taken that job at 7-Up. I should have never taken that job at 7-Up…”


Well, that reaction is certainly understandable.

Come to think of it, I’d probably be on the floor too, whether I was the 7-Up worker, the Four Seasons employee or a member of the Twins organization.

What would your reaction be?

Did this joke make you smile? If so, like and share it!
