After battling through the morning peak period for half an hour Bertha Brown finally arrives at the hospital's underground carpark, deposits her anicent station wagon, zooms through the dingy lit carpark up the ramp that connects to the lifts. Taking the first lift Bertha presses the second floor button where her daughter Betty Blonde is about to drop her bundle in the maternity ward.
When the lift turns up on the second floor Bertha steps out, gazes around, spots the waiting room where she sees her son-in-law Burt Blonde sitting on a white plastic chair listening to the Ashes Cricket Match between England and Australia on his i pod with earphones that fit snuggly in your ears.
Setting foot in the jam packed and riotous waiting room Bertha strides up to Burt Blonde and asks, How's it going?. Because of all the racket and the earphones jammed in his ears Burt Blonde completely misunderstands the question thinking Bertha is asking about the cricket scores Burt says, very good, they've got four out so far and there's only two more left to go. Hearing this Bertha screams, Oh! no, then faints.
