Me: “Oh, what kind of pet do you have?
Customer: “Parakeets. I think one of them is pregnant. I saw them having sex the other day.”
Me: “Birds don’t get pregnant, they lay eggs. In fact, I used to have a female parakeet that would lay eggs all the time.”
Customer: “Did they ever hatch?”
Me: “No, she lived by herself, so they weren’t fertilized.”
Customer: “Oh, is that what the male is for?”
