Biblical Limericks: Male Nipples

I really don’t want to raise quibbles,
but this verse is bound to cause ripples
of laughter as it’s read -
sure, Job, go right ahead,
just try to get milk from male nipples.

Job 21:24 (KJV)

The NRSV isn’t much better. 

and though I joke – it does happen occasionally.
