The miracle of birth

An old country doctor went way out to a farm to deliver a baby.
It was so far out, there was no electricity.

When the  doctor arrived, no one was home except for the labouring
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 new
born baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his
first breath.

The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what he thought of the
baby.  "He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place.  Spank him
again," the 5-year-old said.
