30-something female employee #1: Do you have a pink cowboy hat?
30-something female employee #2: Uh… Let me think. (pause) No, sorry.
30-something female employee #1: Oh, well. It seemed like something you would have.

Which Is Why It Can’t Be the Other Guy I Slept With

Very white girl in business suit on cell in cafeteria: No, I haven’t told him yet, I just found out for sure this morning. (pause) Well, I don’t have his phone number anymore, I took it out of my phone so I wouldn’t drunk dial. (pause) I don’t know, I know his address, so maybe I’ll just send him a card. “Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m having a baby, and so are you”. (pause) Hey, maybe a singing telegram to him at work. That’ll go over big. (pause) He’s an elementary school teacher… that would probably get him fired. (pulls out ghetto accent) And you know my baby daddy better have hisself a job!
