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.
