A mother, accompanied by her small daughter, was in New York City. The mother was trying to hail a cab, when her daughter noticed several wildly dressed women who were loitering on a nearby street corner. The mother finally hailed herself a cab and they both climbed in, at which point the young daughter asked her mother, "Mommy, what are all those ladies waiting for by that corner?" The mother replied, "Those ladies are waiting for their husbands to come by and pick them up on their way home from work." The cabby, upon hearing this exchange, turns to the mother and says, "Ah, c'mon lady! Tell your daughter the truth! For crying out loud ... They're Hookers!" A brief period of silence followed, and the daughter then asked, "Mommy, do the Hooker ladies have any children?" The mother replied, "Of course, dear, where do you think New York cab drivers come from !
