Mooseknuckle Junction

Dear Jason Adair Unlicensed Therapist,
Ok, so I have this friend right. He's in a phase where his pants are moose-knuckle friendly if you know what I'm saying. How do I break it to him that this is simply unacceptable?

I'm not sure that being straight forward about it is the best path. He's the kind of guy who is never wrong. I'm leaning toward some type of public humiliation. What advice can you give me?

Dear Moose be Gone,

The prominent public display of men's testicles goes all the way back to the Greeks, specifically Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, aka George Michael. Though his record label discouraged his wearing mooseknuckle inducing trousers for photo shoots, he could be found sporting the "fig satchel" look at various night clubs/public restrooms in the greater LA area. This trend, like chest waxing and karaoke, caught on with the gay community and has been transmitted from bi-curious college students to the hetero public at large.

At the risk of sounding like an old fuddy-duddy, I will agree that somebody does need to put a stop to these kids and their mooseknuckling. At the same time, I don't want to call for it's outright extinction, as there are certain situations where it is acceptable. (see below)

As far as your friend goes, is he getting any traction with the ladies with this tactic? You do say that he's always right. Could it just be a case of sour grapes because your knuckle is not getting the attention you think it deserves?

Either way, if you do want to change his behavior, I think humiliation is the ticket. The most effective way to do this would be to enlist the skills of a comely female to point at his crotch while doing her best impersonation of a moose call.

If you can't get a girl to do this for you, since you don't seem to have much luck with the ladies, you should try something a little more subtle. Simply hold up your hand, palm towards him, constantly blocking his mooseknuckle from your sight. He, and everyone else around, should catch on pretty quick. But for this to work you must be consistent, which means when you are around him, you must always have one hand free. Be warned though, if you take this route it could turn into a war of attrition, so before you start, ask yourself if you could keep it up for several years, as it could come down to that.

Your friend,

Jason Adair

Thank you Jason Adair! Your wisdom is astounding. The sour grapes comment was spot on. Here is an image of my first attempt in my war of attrition. I'm committed for the long haul.
