A man was waiting for his wife to give birth. The doctor came in and informed the dad that his son had been born without a torso, arms or legs - the son was nothing more than a head. The dad grew to love his son, and he raised him as
well as he could, with love and compassion.
After 21 years, the son was old enough for his first drink. Dad took him to the bar and tearfully told the son he was proud of him. Dad ordered up the biggest, strongest drink for his boy. With all the bar patrons looking on curiously, and the bartender shaking his head in disbelief, the boy took his first sip of alcohol. Swoooop! A torso popped out from under the boy’s head!
The bar was dead silent, then burst into whoops of joy.
The father, shocked, begged his son to drink again. The patrons chanted, “Take another drink!”
The bartender still shook his head in dismay… Then - Swoooop! Two arms popped out!
The bar went wild.
The father, crying and wailing, begged his son to drink again. The patrons chanted, “Take another drink!”. The bartender ignored the whole affair.
By that time, the boy was getting tipsy, and with his new hands he reached down, grabbed his drink, and guzzled the last of it. Swoooop! Two legs popped out!
The bar was in chaos. The father thanked God. The boy stood up on his new legs and stumbled to the left… then to the right… and through the front door and onto the street, where a car ran into him and killed him instantly.
The bar fell silent. The father moaned in grief. The bartender cleaned his glasses and whistled an old Irish tune. The father looked at the bartender in disbelief and asked, “How can you be so cold and callous?”
The bartender said,
“That boy should have quit while he was a head.”
