We all know stories of funny babies. Quite often the children are such a source of funnies they really brighten up our days. Here is one story I heard myself a few years back from the mother herself, so I know this to be a true story.
At the time I was a student and had very little money. I was lucky enough to find a summer job at a factory, and the paycheck really made life easier.
The workers in the factory were mostly women, and very down-to earth and realistic. However they enjoyed a good laugh as much as anyone, and taught me that academic education does not necessarily equal widsom. For they certainly were very wise women.
One day one of the ladies came to visit to show her newborn baby to us. As you can imagine, immediately there was a ring of cooing women around them, admiring the beautiful newcomer who, in the way of babies, was looking at everyone with a slight frown.
"How beautiful she is!" someone said and stroked the soft cheek gently.
"Absolutely gorgeous! Her father must be very proud!"
At this the new mother started laughing out loud.
"Proud, well… You should have seen it! When the father and baby first met."
"What do you mean?"
Everyone was curious.
"Well, it all happened so quickly he did not reach the hospital before the baby was already born. He rushed into the maternity ward and into our room as soon as he could."
Everyone nodded, smiling at the familiar story.
"He bent over the baby to have a first look. His expression was a bit odd, so I asked if something was wrong. Well, you all know what a newborn looks like."
Nods of agreement.
"I suppose in this case it was the eyes. You know how they can be a bit bulging at first."
A murmur of agreement.
"Well, he looked at me and said: 'But… the baby looks just like a bumblebee!' And right after he had said that a nurse walked into the room, saw him bending over the cot and cheerfully announced: 'So you are the proud father. And I can see the baby looks just like you!' "
