Circumsize me

There are some things you can't make up.

Courtesy of frequent Owner's Manual commenter RJ, I offer the following link: Birthers want to see Obama's penis. Apparently, some geniuses among us equate circumcision to being American.

I followed the nested links and ended up at the freerepublic.com discussion thread. Just go over there and poke around. You will be astonished at what fear, ignorance and racism breed.

If you don't care about any of that, I invite you to view one of my favorite photos of all time (it's near the bottom of the post).

Yul Brynner in the buff.

Now then babies, where do you suppose he was born?

I think all this is just another useless flap.

I am not going to confess how long it took me to get that joke.

And now I must stop playing with myself over here and GET TO WORK!!

In America, circumcision is a matter of "tradition" and hygiene. I get the impression some parents don't have it done because it costs extra.

Nobody has to prove anything too me, but if people want to start snapping pictures of the First Mouthful, I'm lookin'.

Everyone! Stop being funny and clever! You're distracting me and I must edit this damn manuscript!

And i really mean it! Look at how many exclamation points I'm using!

I'd quite like to see Obama's penis too. Does that make me a birther?

Qualifying as an American now is a surgical procedure? The expense will certainly kill health care reform.

philbilly said...

And not to mention penis reform as well.

Good one, Tony.

Thank you, Anonymous!

I'm not a birther, and I don't wish to see Obama's penis. I already have enough shame in my life. ;)

Whew, thank the Lord. I'm an American!

But my son is not.

Why is it that so many conservatives always want to see Democratic presidents' penises???? I remember them raising a fuss about 'distinguishing characteristics' of Clinton's anatomy. Why the obsession?

Charles Lambert said...

Well, I'm completely ecumenical. I'd happily have seen Dubya's penis too (though I draw a line at Nixon's). I guess I just like seeing penises.

Jesus, these Neanderthals are just best left ignored. In the days when we lived in a smarter, more serious culture, clowns like these were simply marginalized through a blend of ignoring them and ridiculing them. We seriously need to get back to those times.

I know John. When will it end?

"When will it end?"

Was that a pun?

I wish the real National Lampoon could be resurrected.
