Spam mail and even those seldom amusing jokes that people forward often drive me nuts. However, every once in a while one comes my way that seems to make up for all the others. Here is the text of one I got this morning which rather tickled me. If you are easily offended by sexual innuendo don’t read on!

MAKING A BABY…

The Smiths were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate
father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr.
Smith kissed his wife good-bye and said, “Well, I’m off now; The man should
be here soon.”

Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer
happened to ring the doorbell, hoping to make a sale.

“Good morning, Ma’am,” he said, “I’ve come to…”

“Oh, no need to explain,” Mrs. Smith cut in, embarrassed, “I’ve been
expecting you.”

“Have you really?” said the photographer. “Well, that’s good. Did you know
babies are my specialty?”

“Well, that’s what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a
seat”

After a moment she asked, blushing, “Well, where do we start?”

“Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch,
and perhaps a couple on the bed. And sometimes the living room floor is
Fun. You can really spread out there.”

“Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn’t work out for Harry and me!”

“Well, Ma’am, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But if we try
several different positions and I shoot from six or seven angles, I’m sure
You’ll be pleased with the results.”

“My, that’s a lot!” gasped Mrs. Smith.

“Ma’am, in my line of work a man has to take his time. I’d love to be in and
out in five minutes, but I’m sure you’d be disappointed with that.”

“Don’t I know it,” said Mrs. Smith quietly.

The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his baby
pictures. “This was done on the top of a bus,” he said.

“Oh my God!” Mrs Smith exclaimed, grasping at her throat.

“And these twins turned out exceptionally well – when you consider their
mother was so difficult to work with.”

“She was difficult?” asked Mrs. Smith.

“Yes, I’m afraid so I finally had to take her to the park to get the job
done right. People were crowding around four and five deep to get a good
look.”

“Four and five deep?” said Mrs. Smith, her eyes wide with amazement.

“Yes,” the photographer replied. “And for more than three hours, too. The
mother was constantly squealing and yelling – I could hardly concentrate,
and when darkness approached I had to rush my shots. Finally, when the
squirrels began nibbling on my equipment, I just had to pack it all in.”

Mrs. Smith leaned forward. “Do you mean they actually chewed on your, uh..
equipment?”

“It’s true, Ma’am, yes. Well, if you’re ready, I’ll set-up my tripod and we
can get to work right away.”

“Tripod?”

“Oh yes, Ma’am. I need to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It’s much too
big to be held in the hand very long.”

Mrs. Smith fainted………
