A mother, accompanied by her small daughter, were on ninth avenue in New
York City. The mother was trying to hail a cab, when her daughter noticed
several wildly-dressed women who were loitering on a nearby street corner.
The mother finally hailed her cab and they both climbed in, at which point
the daughter asked her mother, "Mummie, what are all those ladies waiting
for by that corner?", to which the mother replied, "Those ladies are waiting
for their husbands to come home from work, dear."
The cabbie, upon hearing this exchange, turned to the mother and said,
"Ahhhhhhh, C'mon lady! Tell your daughter the truth, fer crying out loud!
An angry silence settled on the speeding cab, broken by the daughter asking,
"Mummie, do the, er, hookers have any children?" The mother calmly replied,
"Of course dear. Where do you think cabbies come from?"
