The Heavier Side of Gambling

A Texan is enjoying a few drinks in a Manhattan bar when his cell phone rings. Grinning from ear to ear, he hangs up & orders a round of drinks for everyone in the bar, announcing that his wife just gave birth to a ‘Typical Texas’ baby boy weighing 26 pounds. Nobody can believe that a new baby can weigh in at 26 pounds, but the Texan just shrugs, “That’s pretty much average down home, folks. Like I said, my boy’s a Typical Texas baby boy.”

Everyone in the bar showers him with congratulations, along with many exclamations of “WOW!”  One girl actually fainted.

Three weeks later the Texan returns to the bar. The bartender says, “Hey, you’re the father of that Typical Texas baby that was born weighing 26 pounds. Everyone’s been placing bets on how big he’d be in three weeks. So, how much does your boy weigh now?”

The proud dad answers, “18 pounds.”

Confused, the bartender asks, “What happened? He already weighed 26 pounds the day he was born!”

The Texan father takes a slow swig from his beer, wipes his mouth on his shirt sleeve, leans in to the bartender & proudly says, “Had’em circumcised!”
