A married couple went to the hospital together to have their baby

Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that
would transfer a portion of the mother's labor pain to the father.  He
asked if they were willing to try it out.  They were both very much in
favor of it. 

The doctor set the knob to 10 percent for starters, explaining that even
10 percent was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced

But as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine, so he asked the doctor
to go ahead and bump it up a notch.  The doctor then adjusted the machine
to 20 percent pain transfer. 

The husband was still feeling fine.  The doctor checked the husband's
blood pressure and pulse and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this,
they decided to try for 50 percent.  The husband continued to feel quite

Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, he encouraged
the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. 

The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her
husband were ecstatic. 

Imagine their surprise when they got home and discovered the mailman dead
on their porch.
