David is in the 5th grade. Yesterday morning when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living, all the typical answers came up: fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.
The teacher noticed that David was being uncharacteristically quiet and so she asked him about his father.
‘My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay bar and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes, if the offer’s really good, he’ll go out to the alley with some guy and do it with him for money.’
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some coloring, and took David aside to ask him, ‘Is that really true about your father?’
‘No,’ said David, red faced. ‘He plays for the Detroit Lions, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids…’
