How Many Kids?
Four expectant fathers were in a 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 3M. My buddies 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 very 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 consciousness.
When he was finally able to speak, you could hear him whispering 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..."
