self portrait (escher)

Two. Two. Two standards in one! NOW, what would you pay?

    boss:
    We have two birthday cards for everyone to sign this month. Only, one of them has degrading pictures of women on the front, so we'll only have males sign that one. Guys, don't show that to the ladies.

    self:
    Good plan, sir. I'm sure it's much more sensitive to exclude them while we all look at these pictures behind their backs. But, about this other card?

    boss:
    What about it?

    self:
    It's got a shirtless man on the front.

    boss:
    And?

    self:
    And the punchline is that we're sharing with the recipient our mutual attraction to him.

    boss:
    Your point being?

    self:
    Some of the men here might not actually be attracted to him.

    boss:
    It's just a card.

    self:
    I'm not really comfortable with this picture. He gives me an unrealistic body image to live up to.

    boss:
    Would you just sign it already?
