It might just be because of my age, but I honestly have no idea how that could relate to the topic. It's probably a saying or something of that nature. I don't understand it. I understand the meaning, but Dont understand how its funny.......Okay that sounds ignorant. Though I hope you know what I'm trying to say. I know it's a joke and dont get the punch line.

The results are in!

Betta Lover.... Castration is what happens to male dogs and cats when people don't want kittens and puppies... the joke is that it isn't a pleasant thing for a male to go through, so sort of a punishment? Taking away their "manly-ness" so by saying he would love to get the fish, but fears he would be castrated if he came home with it, he's just saying there would be an angry person after him if he brought home another fish. It is crude humor.

Anyways, that fish is gorgeous and, castration or not, I think you should get him!

OHHH. Wow I really feel ignorant now. It messes up the whole Idea if you have to explain the joke. lol it is quite funny....Like "I feel like a blonde" or "Blonde Moment." I get it now and hopefully will get the others as well. Also @MandiceP- I knew WHAT the actual word was, just didn't know how it was relating. Thanks for the explanation anyway.

The results are in!

I realized you knew what it meant after I typed it all out, but then was just too lazy to edit. But it's okay... We all have those "Oh Duh!" moments sometimes! Some of us more often than others *points at self* lol I don't get jokes even when they are told directly to my face. So no worries there!

MandiceP summed it up well. I'm married, so it was an attempt to explain the magnitude of the situation in a short way. "For sale: Baby shoes, never used"
