Skepticism filled the room when the mayor claimed he had a pimple "this big".

Look, I don't want to just kiss the babies, I want to deliver them too. Just think what that will do for my poll numbers!

Earliest known footage of a subject "Jimming the camera," a technique later popularized by award-winning documentary series The Office.

I'm telling you! One day, we will all wear masks, even OUT of the hospital!

Hudnut, "Yes, it really was this big!" Man facing camera, "Yeah, right...."

Man facing the camera: "I'm starting to think the Mayor doesn't know how masks work."

"So before I became a doctor, I used to work in a bakery. I'd bake some huge loaves of bread. But I got sick of the dough so I went on the loaf."

Viewers, it was, in fact, NOT that big.

Thank you, doctors. The inflatable catheter thing is great and all, but what I really wanted was to get one of those neat balloon animals the kids get.

Clowns - now I understand!

If we can all gather closer and lean in, we can easily recreate the clown picture!

"I really hope they aren't going to use this photo as some kind of joke in 50 years."

I’m telling you guys it would be hilarious if we switch the names of the babies, let the parents guess who’s who… what do you mean I’m being escorted ??

It's 11:25 and the clowns are looking over your shoulder. Who are you going to trust?

If Hudnut tells his "I was one of the biggest babies born at Riley" story again.....well....I guess there's nothing I can do. He's a Congressman, for Pete's sake! Can I get a pumpkin-spice latte in this place??

Yeah, yeah! I know you gotta go do heart surgery, but just let me finish!
