Yesterday, I was watching a rerun of "The Office", a hilarious sitcom on NBC, based in a garden variety 9-5 office environment. Well, it is actually an American remake of a British sitcom, but as remakes go, it is pretty good. I am sorry to have been oblivious of the existence of this program for so long. It stars the stellar Steve Carell, formerly of the Daily Show as the Boss. This is a clip from yesterday's edition :
Boss (going over health insurance coverage requests from his employees) : (to female employee) You've specified that you want your vagina to be covered under health insurance.
Female Employee (hesitantly) : umm...yes.
Boss : I thought they removed your vagina.
Female Employee (mortified) : Excuse me?
Boss (puzzled) : Didn't you have a hysterectomy where they removed your vagina?
Female Employee : They removed my uterus.
Boss : So they did remove it then.
Female Employee : A uterus is different from a vagina.
Boss (unconvinced) : Really? I thought ...
Female Employee (utterly embarassed) : No. I still have a vagina.
Boss (still a bit puzzled) : Oh ok. Alright.
