Take a Seat, Get Knocked Up

You can’t get pregnant just by sitting on a chair. Yuh-huh, you totally can! At least in England, where seven receptionists at a hotel who each sat regularly in a particular chair have fallen pregnant (as the Brits say) in the span of just 18 months — and they’re all having boys. Yikes. They’ve dubbed it the “fertility chair,” and now people are refusing to sit in it.

“Oh, step into my office. Please have a seat.”

“I can’t. Really. I’m fine standing here against the wall.”

“Please, sit down. The chair’s not going to bite.”

“Listen, I would, but I’m single, and I don’t really have a lot of money right now, and I just don’t think I’m ready for a child.”

“Suit yourself! But you’ll never find a better, more loving father than this sturdy chair right here.”

OMG, wait, what if there are fertility chairs everywhere and we just don’t know about them? Next time you’re sitting in a meeting, you should pass the time by thinking about whether you’re being impregnated right that very minute.
