Harden waits outside of the delivery room for his wife Evelyn to give birth. The doctor comes out and tells the new dad that his son was born without arms or legs. The son has only have a body ! But still Harden loves his son and raises him to the best of his ability, with love and compassion. After seventeen years later, on Father’s Day, Harden decides that the son is old enough for his first drink and so Harden takes him to the pub and tearfully tells the son he is proud of him.
Harden orders up the strongest schnapps for his son. With all the pub customers looking on curiously and the barman shaking his head in disbelief, the boy takes his first gulp of alcohol. Whooopppss! Young boy’s body grew and turned out beard !
The pub is deadly silence at first and then bursts into pandemonium with whoops of joy. Harden is baffled and begs his son to drink again. The customers begin to chant “Take another schnaps”! The barman still shakes his head in dismay.
Whooopppss! Two arms suddenly pop out. The pub goes even wilder. Harden is now crying and begs his son to drink again. Customers chant, “Take another schnaps”! The barman ignores the whole affair. By now the boy is getting tipsy, and with his new hands he reaches down, grabs his glass and swigs what’s left of it. Whooopppss! Two legs pop out.
The pub is now in a dream, going utterly wild. Harden falls to his knees and thanks God with tears on his eyes. The boy stands up on his new legs and stumbles to the right and then to the left… Then the boy stumbles right out through the front door into the street, where a bus runs over him and he’s killed instantly.
The pub falls silent in shock. Harden moans quietly in grief.
The barman sighs and says to Harden, “Boy was only seventeen, you sholdn’t have let him drink .”
