One day a fourth-grade teacher asked the children what their fathers did
for a living.
All the typical answers came up -- fireman, mechanic,
businessman, salesman, doctor, lawyer, and so forth.
However, little Justin was being uncharacteristically quiet, so when
the teacher prodded him about his father, he replied, "My father's an
exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes in front of
other men and they put money in his underwear. Sometimes, if the offer
is really good, he will go home with some guy and stay with him all
night for money."
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other
children to work on some exercises and then took little Justin aside to
ask him, "Is that really true about your father?"
"No," the boy said, "he works for the Republican National Committee and
is helping to get a Republican to be our next President, but I was
too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids."
