There were three gals who were getting married and all met at the marriage
counselor’s office to discuss the options of having or not having a baby
right away. There were two city gals and one farm gal.
The counselor asked them if they planned on having a baby right away or were
going to wait awhile. They all agreed that they had discussed this with
their potential husbands and all agreed to wait awhile.
Well, the counselor asked the first gal what type of birth control she
planned to use.
Her answer was, “the rhythm method.”
“That will work,” said the counselor, “if you keep a good record”
He asked the second gal what system she planned on using.
“I plan on using birth control pills,” she said.
Again he said, "Yes that will work as long as you don’t forget to take them.
He then asked the farm girl what system she was planning on using.
Her answer was, “The pail and saucer method.”
After a short delay, he told her that should also work.
He asked them all to come back in one year on a specific date for a follow
up on how things were going.
They all met again one year later and the two city gals were pregnant. Only
the farm gal was slim and trim yet. Well, the counselor asked the first gal
what method she used and what went wrong.
She replied, “I used the rhythm method, but somehow got my notes mixed up
and, well here I am, going to have a baby.”
He asked the second city gal what method she used and she replied, “The
birth control pill. But we were camping one weekend and I didn’t have my
pills with me and as you can see, I too am going to have a baby.”
He turns to the farm gal. “I vaguely remember you were going to use the pail
and saucer method. Now I must admit that I don’t have a clue what the pail
and saucer method is. Will you explain it to me as I see it has worked well
She replied, “Well we make love standing up, and since I am quite a bit
taller than my husband, he stands on a pail turned upside down. Now as we
are making love, I watch his eyes, and when his eyes get as big as saucers,
I kick the pail out from under him.”
