After having their 11th child, a Tennessee couple decided that was enough (They could not afford a larger doublewide.). So the husband went to his doctor (who also treated mules) and told him about not wanting more children.

The doctor told him there was a procedure known as a vasectomy that could fix the problem. The doctor instructed him to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are legal in Tennessee), light it, put it in a beer can, and hold the can up to his ear and count to 10.

The hillbilly said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest man, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me." So the couple drove to Kentucky to get a second opinion.

The Kentucky physician was just about to tell them about the procedure for a vasectomy when he noticed that they were from Tennessee. Instead this doctor told the man to go home and get a cherry bomb, light it, place it in a beer can, hold it to his ear and count to 10.

Figuring that both learned physicians couldn't be wrong, the man went home, lit a cherry bomb, 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 and resumed counting on his other hand.....
