Veil drawn back to reveal anatomical knowledge

I thank Somsak Pola for enlightening me by revealing that the foreskin/prepuce can be retracted, exposing the head of the iconic organ beneath in all its knobby glory. I should have realised that. Otherwise, how would the pee get out? Obviously the prepuce must have a hole at the end, or it would fill up with urine like a balloon and eventually burst, thus embarrassing its owner if he happened to be in a posh, hi-so gathering of dignitaries and aristocrats at the time. (It would make a good Stephff cartoon.) 

I apologise for my ignorance in this matter. Not having such an appendage myself, I failed to think through all the modalities which its possession must entail. This shortcoming seems to confirm Dr Frank’s belief that cavaliers are superior to roundheads, at least in terms of preputial knowledge. And if Khun Somsak ever feels the need to adopt a Western name, I suggest that he choose one that reflects his wisdom, such as Solomon.

Forever preputially deprived,
