10 Reasons Why it can be Advantageous to Have a Hearing Impaired Child

"There are people who think deafness is a handicap purely because they are under the illusion that they are saying something worth hearing."

A great deaf joke used to be told by Red Skeleton about a young deaf boy who used sign language. One day he told his mother a dirty joke and she washed his hands out with soap.

My nephew was explaining to me that his father's friend was deaf and had to speak with his hands. I asked my nephew how his father's friend shouted in sign language. His reply: "He doesn't have to, he doesn't have any kids."

An ASL (American Sign Language) signing deaf American man was having an animated conversation with a FSL (French Sign Language) deaf French woman. They claimed that they understood each other and didn't need a FSL/ASL interpreter, but my wife was skeptical and used her ASL/spoken French skills to verify that.

The American said that they were talking about skiing and that they both agreed that it was better and much more fun in Europe than in America. Turns out that the ASL sign for ski is the same sign for "sexual intercourse" in FSL and some other European Sign Languages.

One day, two men where in bus traveling to a magic mountain. It was reported that at that mountain if you got to the top that you could be healed! As they were driving they could see the mountain in view. The bus came to a stop. The first man, who was in a wheelchair, started for the top. He kept on pushing his way...Finally, he arrived at the top and he stood up walked a few steps and threw his wheelchair over the edge. and ran done to the bus yelling he was healed!!!

The next man heard what was happening and he got out of the bus. He took out his cane as he was blind and made his way to the top. He also threw his cane over the edge because he too was healed! Down he ran to the bus.

The driver saw what was happening and he decided to give it a try. He and his interpreter, as the driver was Deaf, made their way to the top. After a short while the driver came down. The other men
asked if he was healed..the driver explained ..I don't need a healing. I'm very happy being Deaf but I was really sick of my interpreter and I threw her over the edge.

Bert: I got this great new hearing aid the other day.
Chester: Are you wearing it now?
Bert: Yup. Cost me four thousand dollars, though. But it's top of the line.
Chester: What kind is it?
Bert: Twelve-thirty.

A man goes to the doctor and complains that his wife can't hear him.

"How bad is it?" the doctor asks.

"I have no idea", says the husband.

The doctor tells him, "Well, please test her. Say something 20 feet away, and if she doesn't hear you, get closer and say the same thing until she does. That way we'll have an idea of her range of hearing loss."

So the man goes home and sees his wife in the kitchen chopping up vegetables for dinner.

From 20 feet: "What are we having for dinner?" No answer.
From 10 feet, same thing.
From 5 feet, same thing.
Finally he's standing right behind her.
"What's for dinner?"

She turns around, looks at him and says "For the fourth time,
beef stew!"

An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor.

The doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again."
to which the gentleman said, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!"
