An Old Wives’ Tail

When you’re having a low day, there’s nothing better to do than read a bit of Mahinder Watsa. Reader Nandu writes in to point me to this gem, which I’d somehow missed:

Q. A lot of women approach me for a physical relationship since I have a good physique. However, I am scared. My instructor says that sex reduces physique due to loss of semen since semen is a kind of blood. Is that true or just an old wives’ tale?

Watsa: The instructor badly needs sex education. It is an old wives’ tail.

Rarely is a pun so masterfully used.

PS.: Oh, and just to clarify, when I said ‘low day’, I was not punning. Thank you.
