The doctor said, "The good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition that causes your testicles to press on your spine and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles."

I was shocked and depressed. I wondered if I had anything to live for. I had no choice but to go under the knife.

When I left the hospital, I was without a headache for the first time in 20 years. As I walked down the street, I realized that I felt like a different person.

I could make a new beginning and live a new life. I saw a men's clothing store and thought, "That's what I need... a new suit..."

I entered the shop and told the salesman, 'I'd like a new suit..'

The elderly tailor eyed me briefly and said, "Let's see... Size 44 long."

I laughed, "That's right, how did you know?"

"Been in the business 60 years!" the tailor said.

I tried on the suit; it fit perfectly.

As I admired myself in the mirror, the salesman asked, "How about a new shirt?"

I thought for a moment and then said, "Sure."

The salesman eyed me and said, "Let's see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck."

I was surprised. "That's right! How did you know?"

"Been in the business 60 years."

I tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly.

I walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, "How about some new underwear?"

I thought for a moment and said, "Sure."

The salesman said, "Let's see...Size 36."

I laughed, "Ah ha! I got you! - I've worn a size 34 brief for the last 20 years."

The salesman shook his head, "You can't wear a size 34. A size 34 brief would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache."

LOL. Thanks for the chuckle, Iceman!

Would you call that a "debriefing"?

Iceman,

It's why I switched to boxers years ago... I think brief wearers originated the saying "uptight."
