A young boy’s neighbors had a baby. Unfortunately, the baby was born without ears. When the mother and new baby came home from the hospital, his family was invited over.
Before they left their house, the boy’s dad had a talk with him and explained that the baby had no ears. His dad also told him that if he so much as mentioned anything about the baby’s missing ears or even said the word “ears” he would get a spanking when they came back home. The little boy told his dad he understood and would comply.
They went over to the neighbor’s house and the young boy peered into the crib and said, “What a beautiful baby!”
The baby’s mother said, “Why, thank you, Billy.”
Billy continued, “He has beautiful little feet and beautiful little hands, a cute little nose and really beautiful eyes. Can he see?”
“Yes,” the mother replied, “We are so thankful. The doctor said he will have 20/20 vision.”
“That’s perfect,” Billy responded, “cause he’d sure be out of luck if he ever needed glasses!”
