The Little Prince

The Little Prince

What could possibly prompt parents, anywhere in the world, to dress their little boy up like a prince and shower him with gifts and treats for perhaps ten days or two weeks.

Ah yes, the knowledge that at the end of that two weeks they were going to cut part of his penis off.

I've always wondered how circumcision came into existence. The medical reasons are fairly mild and, in most of the world that does it, it's surrounded with much ceremony. It's the ceremony part that makes me suspicious: how do you make an incomprehensible act make sense? Attach religious significance to it.

I'm not buying it.
