Penn & Teller Call Bullshit On Dolphin-Assisted Birth

I don't really keep up on New Age-y type stuff because it's just not my thing. So the most recent episode of Showtime's Penn & Teller: Bullshit, was a bit of a surprise. The episode featured people engaging in a dolphin-assisted water birthing method, which is said to be very relaxing for the mother and child... even in the middle of the deep ocean. (Aren't babies really slippery when they come out? Especially in water?) As Penn & Teller point out, it's totally unclear as to how the dolphins really help in the birthing process, other than just swimming around. But the dread-locked hippies seen in the clip above firmly believe that the dolphins will come in handy should any complications arise during delivery.
