Forget the 13 and 14-pounders, this lady should be awarded a medal of some kind as she gave birth to (according to scales and witnesses) a sixteen pound baby boy.
Through an interpreter the lady, Chaska Lemila, told a reporter from Reuters News that she thought she was coming apart as the child, Alvaro Mucho, was delivered by a midwife who passed out immediately after the happy event.
"NO! No happy about it!", the lady reportedly told the Reuter's guy, through the translator who learned to speak English at a school in Moyobamba.
"She say she felt like a llama trying to pass a melon", he also translated.
The reporter then asked the interpreter, both of whom had been driven out by the new mother hurling a chamber pot, where the proud father was located.
"He's passing out.."
"Passing out what...cigars?"
"No he just passed out when he heard the trumpet-like cry of the new arrival."
"So, is he not happy either?"
The interpreter stated that the best he could understand the raging father, he was asking how he could afford to feed the big baby.
Also, he apparently went out looking for a four-foot plank to tie across his rear end for the next time he and his wife had sex..."although she may not allow it anymore!"
