Unplanned Parenthood

I read the letter again and again, but it still said the same shocking thing. As if in a daze, I called up Dr. Nomura at the Lab on my Ham radio.

“Are you sure about the results?” I asked.

“Believe me, Mr. Takeshi,” the Doctor replied, “We are as stunned as you are. We tested the sample twice. She’s definitely pregnant.”

“But how is that even possible?” I whined.

Dr. Nomura patiently started explaining, “Well, you see, when the male sperm meets the female ovum…”

“I KNOW ALL THAT!” I shouted, “But…but….but…..”

And it was then that I remembered that fateful night.

It had been raining heavily, and I had just finished an entire bottle of Suntory Chita whisky.

Suddenly hearing a loud noise, I’d gone out to investigate, and found a rather large bull shivering with cold.

I’d let him into the barn….where my cow was safely ensconced.

Or so I’d thought.

Till I saw the Lab result that said that my cow was pregnant, and the father was Godzilla.

    Well, I certainly hope that Godzilla does the right thing by the kid. He’ll have to stop destroying cities and be a proper dad.
