Down on Luck
A young lady in the maternity ward, just prior to labor, is asked by the

girl, who immediately proceeds to give the baby a slap on the rear. The baby
starts crying and the mother exclaims, “Well thank God for that!”
“What do you mean?!” says the midwife, shocked.
“Well,” says the girl extremely relieved, “I had this horrible feeling that
she was going to bark.”
