Good L-rd, people, PLEASE tell me you are not out there choosing your mohels based on which celebrity offspring penises he's circumcised?! Just check out what happened to Babble contributor Sam Apple when he went chop-shopping at the JCC:
Thirteen circumcisions in a day was impressive, and it was only the beginning. "I will show you something," the mohel said, getting up from his chair and opening his bag. He returned with a small book and pointed to a signature on the title page. "Jerry Seinfeld," he said.As long as it wasn't one of those crazy, bloodsucking Jews, [ahem] I would totally go with a mohel over a doc if I were in the market for a circumcision. But is a little privacy for the newest MOT too much to ask? Oy gevalt.
I leaned over and looked at the signature. I was so impressed that it took me a second to wonder why the mohel had chosen this moment to show off his Seinfeld autograph.
"I circumcised Jerry's son," he explained. And there was more. Pride now visible on his face, the mohel pointed to another signature on the same page. "Judge Judy. I did her grandson."

update: yes, as the original, incorrect headline indicated, I spent the 90's giving Seinfeld his privacy
