I Can't Say with Certitude if it's My Crotch

So, I cannot really say that I have been following Anthony Weiner's story all that closely. It does fascinate me that a U.S. Representative could be so incredibly stupid, but the details of the whole thing don't really interest me that much.

When I saw on my google portal the headlines that Weiner's wife is currently pregnant, I shook my head, and the guy with whom I share an office at work wondered what I was reacting to. We talked about it a little bit, and a few minutes later, he started laughing.  He had googled Weiner and saw the quote: "I can't say with certitude if it's my crotch".

Obviously, I have been aware of the story, but as I mentioned above, I have not really followed it closely. I had not seen that quote, and, it made me laugh too when my co-worker read it aloud.

It is difficult for me to imagine anyone ever having the need to say, "I can't say with certitude if it's my crotch".

I can say with 99.99% certainty that I will never need the phrase "I can't say with certitude if it's my crotch".

Call me boring, but I have never had the desire to take a picture of my own crotch. I have also never had another person with a camera close enough to my crotch to get such a shot. Additionally, if either of those two things were to happen, I am pretty sure that I would remember the event well enough to identify the picture.

Plus, I would never ever say the word "certitude".
