A newcomer to America took his pregnant wife to the hospital, but during the delivery of the twin babies, he fainted. His brother had to be brought in to name them. 

“My brother named the kids?” he asked. “My brother is an idiot, a numskull. What did he call the girl?” 

“He named the girl Denise.”

“Denise? Well, that’s not such a bad name. I kind of like it. And what did he call the little boy?”

“De Nephew.”
