Of course he would be. If his computerized voice tried to talk with a British accent, it would explode.

A concerned mother writes: "My 17 year old son has been very secretive with me lately, recently he has started to refuse to go to church with the family and tonight when I was going through his room I found a magazine with naked men in it. He obviously has a girlfriend that he is hiding from me that brought that magazine into my home and I am afraid that they are having intercourse and I am greatly concerned that he will get her pregnant."

I would like to make love to this woman and give birth to her babies.
I'm sure she wouldn't mind, because her husband was also hiding a magazine with naked men, so he's obviously cheating on her with another woman.

Mom, just back away SLOWLY and put the porn down. His girlfriend will need it when she leaves the closet.

Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
