A married couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered.
Upon their arrival, the doctor said that the hospital was testing an amazing
new high-tech machine that would transfer a portion of the mother's labour
pain to the baby's father, without the need for any physical connection. He
asked if they were interested, Both said they were very much in favour of
The doctor set the pain transfer to 10 percent for starters. As the labour
progressed, the husband felt fine and asked the doctor to go ahead and kick
it up a notch.
The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20 percent pain transfer.
The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor then checked the husband's
blood pressure and was amazed at how well he was doing.
At this point they decided to try for 50 percent. The husband continued to
feel quite well. Since the pain transfer was obviously helping the wife
considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to
him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain and the
husband had experienced none. She and her husband were ecstatic.
When they got home they found the postman dead on the porch.
