Ladies and Gentlemen, shall we begin?
A mans embarrassing moments ….. At the office, the new secretary noticed that the managers fly was open. Upon leaving the room, she said, Sir, your barracks door is open.
The manager, an ex-Army man, did not understand her remark but later he saw that his zipper was open.
The next day, the manager asked, By the way, when you looked into my barracks door yesterday, did you notice the tall soldier standing at attention?
No sir, the secretary replied sweetly, all I saw was a disabled veteran sitting on two old Ali Baba bags.
