We Can, but They’re Kinda Like Taffy

Nurse: Okay, it’s time to push the baby out. Take a deep breath, hold it, and push! One, two, three… That was an awesome push! I want you to do the same thing with the next contraction, okay?
Baby daddy: Why are you making her do this?
Nurse: Ummm, to get the baby out.
Baby daddy: Are you kidding me? How long do you expect her to do it?
Nurse: Until the baby comes out.
Baby daddy: This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard! Can’t you just pull it out or something?
