Of Birds And Bees A father asked his 10-year-old son if he knew about the birds and the bees. "I don't want to know!" the child said, bursting into tears. "Promise me you won't tell me!" Confused, the father asked what was wrong. The boy sobbed, "When I was six, I got the "There's no Santa speech." At seven, I got the "There's no Easter Bunny' speech." When I was eight, you hit me with the "There's no tooth fairy speech." "If you're going to tell me that grown-ups don't really get laid, I'll have nothing left to live for."
