Ahead…

A man is waiting for his wife to give birth. The doctor comes in and informs the dad that his son was born without a torso, arms or legs. The son is just a head! But the dad loves his son and raises him as well as he can, with love and compassion.

After 18 years, the son is now old enough for his first drink. Dad takes him to the pub, tearfully tells the son he is proud of him and orders up the biggest, strongest drink for his boy. With everyone looking on curiously and the bar-man shaking his head in disbelief, the boy takes his first sip of alcohol. Swoooop! A torso pops out! The pub is dead silent; then bursts into a whoop of joy. The father, shocked, begs his son to drink again.

The auld fellas roar at him, “Take another drink”! The bar-man still shakes his head in dismay. Swoooop! Two arms pops out! The pub goes wild. The father, crying and wailing, begs his son to drink again. Drunks are screaming now, “Take another drink”! The bar-man ignores the whole affair.

By now the boy is getting tipsy, and with his new hands he reaches down, grabs his drink and guzzles the last of it. Swoooop! Two legs pop out. The pub is in chaos. The father falls to his knees and tearfully thanks God. The boy stands up on his new legs and stumbles to the left… then to the right… right through the front door, into the street, where a truck runs over him and kills him instantly. The pub falls silent. The father moans in grief. The bar-man sighs and says… “He should have quit while he was a head!”
