My Dad’s shameful secret 39



View Profile

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”.

    • I actually played in a curtain raiser in the olden days, 1967 to be exact. I was there when where you played club football determined which State represented. QLD was a real joke and NSW usually went for the outright straight after half time. They had to change the selection rules to give QLD a sniff. It is a made up series to create interest. So who gives a rat’s. Most games are boring. I don’t even bother to watch SofO or NRL and haven’t since the mid 1990’s. At least you didn’t need six officials to get decisions wrong. One was enough and we moved on.
