A Queenslander is drinking in a West Australian Pub when he gets 
a call on his mobile phone, and as he listens to the call, he starts 
grinning from ear to ear. Once he disconnects, he shouts to the 
barman that he wants to buy everyone in the bar a drink. 


The barman starts serving the drinks and the people start to crowd 
around keen to know what they are celebrating. 


“Well,” he announces, “my wife’s just produced a typical Queensland 
baby boy weighing 25 pounds.”


Nobody can believe that any baby can weigh in at 25 pounds, but 
the Queenslander just shrugs, “That’s about average in Queensland. 
Like I said, my boy is a typical Queensland boy.”

Congratulations showered him from all around and many exclamations 
of “strewth” were heard. One woman even fainted due to sympathy 
pains.

Two weeks later, the Queenslander returns to the bar. The barman 
says “You’re the father of that typical Queensland baby that weighed 
25 pounds at birth, aren’t you? Everybody’s been having bets about 
how big he’d be in two weeks, we were going to call you. So, how much 
does he weigh now?” 


The proud father answers, “17 pounds.” 


The bartender is puzzled and concerned. “What happened? He weighed 
25 pounds the day he was born!” 


The Queensland father takes a long s-l-o-w swig from his XXXX Gold 
beer, wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, leans onto the bar and proudly 
says, “Had him circumcised!”
