A man is waiting for his wife to give birth to their first child. The doctor comes in and informs the new dad that his son was born without a torso, any arms, and no legs. The son is just the head!
But the dad loves his son and raises him as well as he can, with love and compassion.

The bar is dead silent; then bursts into a whoop of joy. The father, shocked, begs his son to drink again. The patrons chant, "Take another drink"! The bartender still shakes his head in dismay. Swoooop! Two arms pop out.
