Little Tommy 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.
Tommy was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him
about his father.
"My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret 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 make love with him for money."
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other
children to work on some exercises and took little Tommy aside to
ask him, "Is that really true about your father?"
"No," said Tommy, "He works for the Kerry campaign, but I was too
embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids."
