Earlier this month, the internet was baffled by the story of a man who was charged $39.95 by the hospital for the privilege of holding his own newborn baby after his wife's c-section. A nurse had asked his wife during the procedure if they wanted to do a "skin to skin," but they didn't realize until they got the bill that it came with a price tag.

Still, the parents were good-natured about the whole thing. (After all, $40 is a drop in the ocean when it come to childbirth.) The dad shared a photo of the bill on Reddit just to get a laugh. And now he's proving his sense of humor with this follow-up photo of his new son, wearing a t-shirt designed to recoup the losses of his own birth.

Now THAT's a dad joke.

Would you take this baby up on his offer? He is pretty huggable. Honestly, $39.35 seems like a steal for a "shirt to shirt" with that little guy.
