A man is at work one day when he notices that his co-worker is wearing an earring. This man knows his co-worker to be a normally conservative fellow, and is curious about his sudden change in "fashion sense". So, he says, "I didn't know you were into earrings." "Don't make such a big deal, it's only an earring," the co-worker replies sheepishly. His friend falls silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to say, "So, how long have you been wearing one?" "Ever since my wife found it on my back seat." ..... I always wondered how this trend got started.
