Bruce, an Australian who was working on contract for 3 months in Dublin was drinking in O’Donoghue’s pub in Merrion Row when he gets a call on his mobile phone.
He hangs up grinning from ear to ear, orders a round of drinks for everyone in the bar, because, he announces his wife back home has just produced a typical baby boy weighing 25 pounds.
Nobody can believe that any baby can weigh in at 25 pounds but Bruce just shrugs, "That's about average in Oz. Like I said my boy is a typical Australian baby boy.
Congratulations showered him from all around and many exclamations were heard. One woman even fainted due to sympathy pains.
Two weeks later Bruce returns to the bar.
Greg, the bartender says "You're the father of that typical Australian baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth. Everybody's been having bets about how big he'd be in 2 weeks, we were going to call you. So how much does he weigh now?
The proud father answers '17 pounds"
Greg is puzzled and concerned. "What happened? He weighed 25 pounds the day he was born.
Bruce takes a long s-l-o-w swig from his beer, wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, leans onto the bar and proudly says .............. "Had him circumcised mate"
