Little Douglas was in his class when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came up – fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.
Dougie 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 an offer’s really good he’ll go out to the alley with some guy and have sex with him for money.”
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some colouring, and took little Doug aside to ask him, “Is that really true about your father?”
“No,” said Dougie, “He’s a politician, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids!”
