After having their 11th child, a Liverpudlian couple decided that was enough, as the social couldn't
buy them a bigger bed and they weren't strong enough to nick one. The husband went to his doctor
and told him that he and his wife didn't want to have any more children. The doctor told him there
was a procedure called a vasectomy that would fix the problem but it was expensive..
A less costly alternative was to go home, get a firework, light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can
up to his ear and count to 10. The Scouser said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest guy in the world,
but I don't see how putting a firework in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me."
"Trust me, it will do the job", said the doctor.
So the man went home, lit a banger and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to
count: "1, 2, 3, 4, 5," at which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs so he could continue
counting on his other hand.
This procedure also works in Middlesbrough, parts of Bradford and anywhere in Wales.
