Baby with No Ears

Little Johnny’s next door neighbor had a baby. Unfortunately the
baby was born with no ears. When they arrived home from the
hospital, the new parents invited Little Johnny’s family over to
see the new baby.

Little Johnny’s parents were very afraid their son would have a
wise crack to say about the baby. So, Little Johnny’s dad had a
long talk with Little Johnny before going to the neighbors. He
said, “Now son, that poor baby was born without any ears. I want
you to be on your best behavior and not say one word about his
ears, or I’m really going to spank your butt when we get back
home.” “I promise not to mention his ears at all,” said Little

At the neighbors home Little Johnny leaned over the crib and
touched the baby’s hand. He looked at it’s mother and said, “Oh
what a beautiful little baby!” The mother, who had braced
herself for Johnny’s comment, was pleasantly surprised and said,
“Thank you very much Little Johnny.”

He then said, “This baby has perfect little hands, and perfect
little feet. Why just look at his pretty little eyes…Did the
doctor say he can see good?” The mother said a bit bewildered,
“Why yes…the doctor said he has 20/20 vision, why do you ask?”
Little Johnny said, “Well, it’s a damn good thing, ’cause he
sure as hell can’t wear glasses!!
