Jim was seconds away from having a vasectomy when his brother and sister-in-law barged in holding their newborn baby.

Jim couldn’t take any more of this. He gave his sister-in-law an apologetic look and asked his brother: “Are you sure you want a nephew?”
“Absolutely,” said the brother.
“Well, congratulations,” said Jim, “you’re holding him!”
