Weighing in

Weighing in

A small town doctor was famous in the area for always catching large fish.

One day while he was on one of his frequent fishing trips he got a call that a woman at a neighboring farm was giving birth. He rushed to her aid and delivered a healthy baby boy.

The farmer had nothing to weigh the baby with so the doctor used his fishing scale. Despite the baby appearing to be small in size, he weighed in on the doctor’s scale at 21 lbs 13 oz.
