A 12-year-old Modern Orthodox boy, Josh Orlian from White Plains, New York, auditioned live on NBC's America's Got Talent last night, regaling a nationwide audience with penis jokes and the like while his supportive parents kvelled.

Here's one of Orlian's jokes as recounted by Julie Weiner:
Orlian said that after attending circus camp, he wanted to learn “sword swallowing,” but his mother objected. To which, he said, his father replied: “I’m not surprised. Your mother hasn’t been interested in sword-swallowing since we got engaged.”
It's good to support your kid's hopes and dreams, but I have to ask, what is wrong with these parents?
