A man was waiting for the birth of his child, when the doctor came out and informed the dad that his son was born without torso, arms or legs. The son was just a head!
The dad loved his son and raised him as well as he could, with love and compassion. After 18 years, the son was old enough for his first drink. Dad took him to the bar, tearfully told the son he was proud of him and ordered the biggest, strongest drink for his boy.
With all the bar patron looking on curiously and the bartender shaking his head in disbelief, the boy took his first sip of alcohol.
Swoooosh! A torso popped out!
The bar was dead silent; then burst into a whoop 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.
Swoooosh! 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 now the boy was getting tipsy, and with his new hands he reached down, grabbed his drink and guzzled the last of it.
Swoooosh! Two legs popped out.
The bar was in chaos. The father fell to his knees and tearfully thanked God. The boy stood up on his new legs and stumbled to the left.... then to the right .... right through the front door, into the street, where a truck ran over him and killed him instantly.
The bar fell silent. The father moaned in grief. The bartender sighed and said .................................
"The boy should have quit while he was a head!"
