Funny but Stupid
5 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode was representative of the whole series: funny, but stupid. Al is injured playing sports, and, by mistake, circumcised at the hospital. This sets up all sorts of gags, including Al shown in the maternity ward crying with tiny babies, and Peggy and Marcie giggling excitedly about how much better sex will be for Peggy now that Al has been circumcised. The characters in it are the Bundy family, and Marcie and Jefferson. One hint is that circumcision is best done an babies, so they will not remember it, as Jefferson got circumcised as a baby but says he does not remember it whereas Al is shown in clear discomfort. The story does not make much sense, as it is unlikely a man of Als generation in the USA would have not been circumcised as a baby. Furthermore, he complains about the recovery afterwards but does not consider suing. Not very profound, but funny.
