ANDY'S ANSWER: Let's face it, puberty gives people plenty of material to make fun of. Cracking voices, hair popping out all over, growth spurts, etc... all make for great jokes. I remember my best friend's brother teasing me about the brillo pads sprouting under my armpits. It really made me self-conscious until I realized that my friend's brother sounded just like Marge Simpson whenever he said something. Once I had something to tease him about, my brillo pads didn't seem so funny to him anymore. We made a deal to lay off of each other's puberty weirdness.
