My Dad's shameful secret

Little David was in his 5th grade class in Brisbane when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came up: fireman, policeman, salesman, accountant.

David was being uncharacteristically quiet, so the teacher asked him about his father.

“My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay bar and he takes off all his clothes in front of other men”, David replied.

The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some colouring, took little David aside and asked him: “Is that really true about your father?”

“No”, said David, sheepishly. “He plays State of Origin for New South Wales, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids”.
