Now that, I have to agree with. When I first heard the phrase "Nandan, the birthing man" I quite literally could not help but reflexively laugh (getting a 'look' from Robin and half the panel audience, much to my chagrin), simply because it rhymed and scanned so well with "Dan, Dan, the lavatory man", and other playground/ Carry On film lines to that effect. I'm sorry, all. *Bad* spinal column.
