Had a conference call and one of the guys said something along the lines of "I can handle the load (ticket load)" didn't even thought about it my mouth instinctively reacted with "that's what she said".

A couple of guys laughed but the other few just "wooooow"ed like if I had thrown a 9/11 joke.

This is not a rant perse, just a reminder that if I ever launch my own startup I shall look to hire "joke sensitive" people to make my scrum meetings as awkward as possible.

    YES YOU GO.

    Unintentional jokes are the best, no matter how "childish" or "immature" they may be.

    @Stuxnet couldn't help but laugh at the awkwardness of the situation which only made it more awkward, a win in my book and a nice way to start the day.

    @JKyll I saw a clip of a broadcaster talking about catching an (American) football with your hands because they're "soft and can caress the balls." His broadcast partner goes "that's kinda gay but ok" and then there's like a 5 second awkward silence.

    I've not laughed so hard in a long time.
