Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Let us be mindful of those are intersexed. It is possible for a 'man' to become pregnant... but this prankster needs a good swift kick in the nuts.

Men (of the non-intersexed variety) can't get pregnant?! Then what have I been doing?!

Ages ago I used to be a parts driver for a Ford dealership. One of the other parts drivers was habitually late, and at one point he disappeared for 3 days straight. When he finally came back to work, he told the boss that he didn't show up because he had to have "an emergency hysterectomy".

The boss told me this, and I laughed and said, "What did you say to him?". The boss said, "I fired him and told him to go home and ask his mother what a hysterectomy is".

Good times

I called in once and said "Hey, I've got a problem with my eyes this morning. I just can't see coming in." My boss laughed and said "have a good one."

One of my co workers is really vain. She made an appointment to get her breasts done. She told the men but not the ladies.

When she called in sick, my boss asked what was wrong with her. My other co worker, a crotchety old car buff of a man who should have retired years ago, shouted across the office: "SHE WENT TO GET SOME TITS INSTALLED AND NOW I HAVE TO COVER FOR HER, DAMMIT!!!"

I worked in a major pharmaceutical company's call center for a couple months after being laid off - it was probably the worst job working for the worst company I have ever had, but it paid the bills. Anyway, their HR department screwed up their paperwork when entering me as an employee and had me down as a female. When I asked them to correct it I was informed that it was more hassle then it was worth and to just live with it ... I promptly filed for maternity leave and they promptly fixed their error.

One of the many stories I have of that company that just blew my mind.
