What’s in a Number?
It was David Rothenstein’s first day as a medical resident in the labour and delivery clinic at Mount Sinai hospital. As was their practice for first day residents, Rothenstein got the honor of making the happy announcement to loved ones in the waiting room.
First, Rothenstein walked up to a man in the waiting room and said, "Congratulations sir, you're the new father of twins!" The man replied, "How about that! I used to work for the Minnesota Twins baseball team."
About an hour later, Rothenstein entered the waiting room and announced that Mrs. Smith had just had triplets. Mr. Smith stood up and said, "Well, how do ya like that, I work for 3M!"
When Rothenstein appeared next, he told the third man that his wife had given birth to quadruplets. "That's amazing! I work for the Four Seasons Hotel!"
At this point the gentleman sitting in the corner fainted. Rothenstein attended to him and when he came to he said, “Sir, are you OK? What happened?”
“I’m an animator for Disney,” said the man.
“So?” asked Rothenstein.
“We’re working on a remake of 101 Dalmatians."
