Age Old Question Answered

Last week in the post entitled "God, Nipples and Poker", we opined on the query, Is Poker a Sport?, while also suggesting that this debate is soon to join the ranks of age old questions such as: What's the meaning of life?, Is there a God?, Are we alone in this universe? and Why do guys have nipples?

Well, apparently we have the answer to one of those great mysteries. In a new book entitled "Why Do Men Have Nipples," Billy Goldberg, an emergency medicine physician, and Mark Leyner, a bestselling author and well-known satirist, offer factual answers to some of the big questions about the oddities of our bodies-- you know, like how do people in wheelchairs have sex and why does asparagus make my pee smell?

But as far as we can tell, the two still don't provide any reasonable biological explanation for the oddity of that guy sitting next to you at the $4-$8 table at Hollywood Park who smells as bad as rotting meat tied to a skunk in an un-airconditioned elevator filled wall-to-wall with (fill in the blank with the name of an ethnic group known for smelly people...I'm way to politically correct to do so) plumbers who just had a port-a-potty explode on them, or you know, like Barry Paskin.

So why do men have nipples?

Males and females all start out in a similar way in the embryo, the book explains. The embryo follows a female template until about six weeks, when the male sex chromosome kicks in, and by then us men have already developed nipples.


Now back to is poker a sport.
