It is sometimes medically necessary.

The hygiene argument strikes me as about as logical as having your teeth removed for the same reason.

Malaysia want me circumcised? Well, they can have my foreskin when they take if from my cold, dead... er... hand.

It's sometimes medically disastrous.

Oh man. Why can't they just leave those tiny little penises alone? How can mass circumsicion help racial harmony? Are they planning on making pants illegal any time soon?

pmeasley... andI 'm sure that's where they'll find it, if they're out to take it from you.

The phrase "mass circumcision ceremonies" is one that should never, ever, ever disgrace the English language.

Why are you people so anti-circumcision anyway. sheet. It probably is a good idea if you are living in a 3rd world nation.

Its nice to know I can skip a shower once in a while and not have my dick smell funny.
