but this gave me a chuckle:
Marky was in his 5th grade class when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living.
All the typical answers came up ... fireman, policeman, salesman, doctor, lawyer, etc.
Marky was being uncharacteristically quiet, so the teacher asked him about his father.
"My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret & takes off all his clothes in front of other men & they put money in his underwear. Sometimes, if the offer's really good, he'll go home with some guy & have sex with him for money."
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some exercises & took little Marky aside to ask him "Is that really true about your father?"
"No," said Marky, "he works in John Kerry's campaign, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids."
