My son once told me his penis was sweaty and itched when I asked why he was touching it. A friend overheard and told him "Don't touch that! And don't say penis! Call it your firehose and only scratch it in the bathroom!" To which my son responded "That's stupid". And I responded "What he said". (He makes me so proud sometimes.)
