Typical Scots Bairn

Submitted by Jean Jaffray (Aberdeen City Council)

A Scot from the Isle of Lewis is drinking in a Southampton bar ... he gets a call on his cell phone. He hangs up, grinning from ear to ear and orders a round of drinks for everybody in the bar because, he announces, his wife has just produced a typical Scottish baby boy weighing 25 pounds.

Nobody can believe that any new baby can weigh in at 25 pounds, but the Scot just shrugs, "That's about average up North, folks. Like I said, my boy's a typical Scottish baby boy."

Congratulations showered him from all around & many exclamations of "WOW!" were heard. One woman actually fainted due to sympathy pains.

Two weeks later the Scot returns to the bar. The bartender says "Say, you're the father of that typical Scottish baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth, aren't you? Everybody's been makin' bets about how big he'd be in two weeks. We were gonna call you... so how much does he weigh now?"

The proud father answers, "Seventeen pounds." The bartender is puzzled & concerned. "What happened? He already weighed 25 pounds the day he was born." The Scots father takes a slow swig from his Stornoway Dark Isle Real Ale wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, leans into the bartender & proudly says,

"Had him circumcised".
