    After having their 11th child, an NSW couple decided that was enough, as
    they could not afford a larger bed. So the husband went to his doctor
    and told him that he and his wife didn't want to have any more children.

    The doctor told him there was a procedure called a vasectomy that would
    fix the problem but it was expensive. A less costly alternative was to
    go home, get a large firecracker, light it, put it in a beer can, then
    hold the can up to his ear and count to 10.

    The husband said to the doctor, "B'Jayzus, I may not be the smartest guy
    in the world, but I don't see how putting a firework in a beer can next
    to my ear is going to help me with my problem."

    "Trust me, it will do the job", said the doctor.

    So the man went home, lit a cracker and put it in a beer can. He held
    the can up to his ear and began to count: "1, 2, 3, 4, 5," at which
    point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs so he could
    continue counting on his other hand.

    This procedure also works in New Zealand and Tasmania.
