    Hello there children and how are you today?

    Anyway had some rum and coke and started thinking about my nipples, why do we have them? Is it due to a design blueprint when we are developing in the womb? I think not, I think that the real reason men have nipples (and well you know boobs) is this:

    When we get fat and old we develop MAN BOOBS! And women find man boobs a bit of a turn off, so the reason we have nipples (and boobs) is really the bodys way of telling you to get into shape and become a virile man again so w can spread the seed.

    I think we have nipples because ... if we didn't ... we'd be wondering why we don't have nipples.

    This guy in my class actually looks like he has boobs! Seriously when I saw him in gym class, the part round the nipples was way bigger than normal. He said it was some kinda flaw in his DNA. [​IMG] Maybe thats why we have nipples in the first place.

    lOl-MG, love handles.

    From what I've seen in gym classes, Man Boobs can be pretty dangerous if caution isn't taken. I've seen many a classmate fall victim to getting his face punched in by the juggling of his own Man Boobs while jogging it up. [​IMG]

    If you have any odd patches of hair down below your nipples, you may have a unformed pair of vestigial nipples.

    I won't reveal whether I do or not, I'll let you guess.

    ..if that floats yer boat.

    Perhaps you're satisfied just not thinking about it, but then why on earth are you combing this thread?

    Okay, for those of you interested, the reason men have nipples is because we are conceived with the hormone testosterone unactive. That means for a few weeks of our life in the womb, we grow in a 'female' fashion! (That is, we get nipples.) They're totally useless to us, we don't really need them, and in fact, you can rip them off (quite painfully) with no big problems.
