A Pittsburgh Steelers fan is drinking in a Cleveland bar, when 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, announcing his wife has just given birth to a typical Pittsburgh baby boy weighing 25 pounds. Nobody can believe that any new baby can weigh in at 25 pounds, but the Steelers fan just shrugs and replies: "That's about average back home, folks, like I said, my boy's a typical
Pittsburgh baby boy."
"He's gonna be a Pittsburgh Steelers football player."
Congratulations showered him from all around, amid many exclamations of
One woman actually fainted due to sympathy pains.
Two weeks later, he returns to the bar.
The bartender says: "Say, aren't you the father of that typical Pittsburgh
baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth? Everybody's been making bets about how big he'd be in two weeks."
"So, how much does he weigh now?"
The proud father answers: "Seventeen pounds."
The bartender is puzzled, concerned and a little suspicious.
"What happened? He already weighed 25 pounds the day he was born!"
The Steelers fan father takes a slow swig of his beer, wipes his lips on his
shirt sleeve, leans into the bartender and proudly says:
"HAD HIM CIRCUMCISED!!!."
