My Father Is Gay (PG)

Little Johnny’s playoff hopes dashed

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

Little Johnny was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father.

“My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay bar and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes, if the offer is really good, he’ll go out to the alley with some guy and make love with him for money.”

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

“No,” said Little Johnny. “He plays for the Vancouver Canucks but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.”
