The More You Know

A friend recently remarked to her mother that she'd never known an uncircumcised man.

Giggling nervously, Mom said: "Um ... actually, you do."

"What?! Who?"

Still tittering, her mother informed her that her father was intact.

"Ew, gross!" she exclaimed, suddenly sorry she'd raised the topic.

As she desperately tried to cleanse her mind, her mom added that her dad's oldest friend, a man she'd known all her life, was also uncut. The two had been born at the same hospital on the same day -- July 3 -- and one theory was that the snip doctor had been on vacation.

"His parents were probably too cheap to take him back and have it done later," said Mom.

Sharing the story with some of her gays the other day, my friend said: "At least now I know for sure he never tried to molest me. Because I would've remembered seeing the anteater."

I presumed she was using the term "known" in the biblical sense. "I have never known any uncircumcised men" ought never include reference to one's father!!

Anything involving fathers and circumcision should be avoided at all costs.
