Typical Texas baby

A Texan is drinking in a Charleston bar when he gets a call on his cell phone. After he hangs up, he orders a round of drinks for everybody in the bar, announcing that his wife has delivered a typical Texas baby boy: who weighs 25 pounds.

Nobody believes that any newborn can weigh in at 25 pounds, but the Texan just shrugs. "That's 'bout average down home, folks. Like I said, my boy's a typical Texas baby boy."

Congratulations are showered on him and many exclamations of "Wow!" are heard. One woman actually faints due to sympathy pains.

Two weeks later he returns to the bar. The bartender says, "Say, you're the father of that 'typical Texas baby' who 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 and a little suspicious. "What happened? I thought he weighed 25 pounds the day he was born."

The Texas father takes a slow swig from his Lone Star, wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, and says, "Well, he did. But then we had 'im circumcised."
