Totally Quotable Arlo: circumcision edition

safety

So, yeah, today’s the day Arlo found out that his grandparents were responsible for cutting off the “safety part” of his father’s penis, something I’m sure they’ll hear about come Sunday, during our weekly call… If you’re reading this, mom and dad, you’ve got five days to come up with a good explanation. For what it’s worth, I’d like to hear it too.

    I’d forgotten that we actually have a “Mark’s penis” tag on this site.

    And this was apparently the 10th time that I used it.

    The answer is the same for all forms of gender-based indoctrinations/abuses: tradition.

    My 11 year old son, just showed me this:

    It claims circumcision became the norm in the US when John Harvey Kellogg suggested circumcision would prevent masturbation. Wait until you hear what they did to women…

    Having read all of the “Mark’s penis” posts, I feel as though I have a pretty good handle on it. Maybe it’s time to start shedding some light on the bollocks.

    Glocks don’t have a safety.

    Your penis is exactly what I needed today. A welcome diversion.

    On a side note, has anyone warned the new city manager about Mark’s penis? Remember what happened last time?

    Yes, we implemented a “Mark’s Penis” module in our employee orientation program in 2015.
