I have one, but it is long: When I was 20 (long before kids), I had 2 cats, one who just had a litter of kittens. Then got a back injury and went to the ER. The doc asked if I had any kiddies. I heard "kitties" and answered. Oh yes, I have 7 (remember, I'm 20!). He gets a look and says "Do you let them jump on you?" I say, yes, of course I do. "How old are they" he asks. "The oldest is 5, but most of them are still babies" (I mean, I'm STILL clueless here). He said "You have to stop that or your back will never heal. especially the older ones" and walks out. I'm confused about how my cats/kittens could possibly make my back worse, even if they do jump in my lap. FINALLY after being left alone for a minute, I realize he was talking about KIDS and I'm talking about cats. So dumb of me. When he came back, I clarified, but he must have thought I was the biggest idiot he ever met.
