Be careful about accusing someone of not being circumcised: he might sue you for libel:

In the lawsuit, John F. Singer, 49, of Queens, claims that Centropa published an online interview in 2005 that quoted his mother saying that neither of her sons had been circumcised as infants. Mr. Singer asserts that he told the center’s director, Edward Serotta, that he was, in fact, circumcised as an infant, and that Mr. Serotta approved the publication of the article containing the incorrect claim anyway.


The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for emotional distress, as well as an injunction barring Centropa from publishing the claim again.

Who’d have thought?
