I'm not sure where I heard this for the first time, but it never fails to bring a smile to my face. The following version was provided by my friend, Kelli Fitzgerald, who is engaged to my best friend, Brandon. It has been cleaned up somewhat for our more sensative readers.

A group of four pregnant women are sitting in the doctor's office, chit chatting about their soon to be born children, when one of the women, the first offered the following comment.

"You, on the day that I found out I was pregant, I'd been listening to Duet for Violin and Cello by Mozart and we had twins. I always thought was a little strange."

Amazed, but not to be outdone, the second woman chimed in. "Now that's very odd," the second woman added. "On the day I found out that I was pregnant, my husband and I had been listening to the Beethoven Trio in C minor and we had triplets.

Equally amazed, the third woman added her remarks. "Now that is strange," she commented. "On the day that I found out I was expecting, the good doctior told me that we would be having quadruplets and my husband had been listening to Bach Concerto for Four Harpsichords."

All of a sudden, the fourth woman began to cry.

"Why deary, what's wrong?" the first woman asked, clearly concerned.

"We only found out we were expecting last week!" The fourth woman now howled, tears now rolling down her face.

"But that's wonderful," the second woman added. "Whatever could be wrong with that?"

"On the morning we found out," the fourth woman wept, "my husband and I had been listening to the Mahler 'Symphnony of a Thousand.'"

The literary vesion is similar.

Three women are sitting in the doctor's office, talking about the books they were reading when they learned they were pregnant. The first woman says that she was reading A TALE OF TWO CITIES, and eventually had twins. The second woman says that she was reading THE THREE FACES OF EVE and eventually had triplets. Suddenly the third woman looks horrified. "Oh-my-God!" she whimpers. "I was reading "THE BIRTH OF A NATION!"
