I have often wondered how this trend got started, I now have the answer.
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.
The man walks up to him and says; I didn’t know you were into earrings.
Don’t make such a big deal, it’s only an earring, he 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 in my car !!
