Why is this considered funny or awkward? I don't get it.

Quote:
WELLINGTON, New Zealand - A news conference in New Zealand came to an awkward halt Monday after the country's prime minister acknowledged having had a vasectomy.

Prime Minister John Key was responding to questions about funding changes to early childhood education centres when he was asked whether he would send his children to one with fewer qualified teachers on its staff.

"I think if I sent my 15-year-old or 17-year-old to early childhood at the moment, they'd have a meltdown," he quipped.

What if his wife, Bronagh, had another child?

"I'd be extremely worried," Key said, "because I've had a vasectomy."

Maybe I am just having a dense moment, but what is the big deal? Why did CBC put this in diversions? Are these the same people who get giddy about the planet known as Uranus?

It seems to me that it is bs like this that makes it less socially acceptable for men to take the initiative on birth control.

Hmmm. I have issues with his wife, not doctor, being suspect as well as the presumption of ownership/copyright of children by parents.

Isnt it kind of odd that a single guy, with no significant other, who uses condoms reguarly, to just up and get himself a vasectomy out of the blue?
