I will never have a son. That is a certainty, as my wife and I decided to go out on top and close the baby factory after the birth of our second daughter last June. Indeed, after masterfully creating two beautiful offspring (no modesty here, we made good-looking kids and had fun doing it) we're done. Having a pair of girls, one thing I'll never have to deal with is circumcision. I know it's a hot-button issue for a lot of folks, and I've seen many of my peers in the Parent Blogging Community (both Dad Bloggers and Mom Bloggers) write about it at length. There's social issues... health concerns... and then those pesky religious implications. That said, for those of you dealing with the circumcision debate, one man has the definitive answer: Trevor Moore.
On his new album from Comedy Central, Moore throws it down very simply - "God Hates the Tips." Listen for yourself:
Whether you're Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or a Godless Atheist (like myself), I think it's time to agree that Moore nailed the origin of circumcision when he said "Some Ancient Pervs just made it up."
"God Hates the Tips" is available from iTunes as a digital single, or as part of the full album, DRUNK TEXTS TO MYSELF. It's Rock Father Approved!
