image for Pharmaceuticals Company Announces New Male Pregnancy Test
VP Dick Cheney beams with delight after his home pregnancy test revealed his wife's totally unexpected pregnancy.

In the hopes of doubling revenue, a pharmaceuticals company is now offering an at-home male pregnancy test.

Typically, the test rarely detects actual pregnancy in males. However, it is amazingly accurate in detecting males whose partners (typically female) are pregnant or near pregnant.

Doctor Revi Ngu explained: "It's the same physiological reaction in males that causes such pregnancy reactions in females as that desire for bizarre food, sudden nesting instinct urges to redecorate the home by adding small fist-sized holes to walls and cheap closet doors, the urge to hurl coffee makers with freshly brewed coffee right out the window, and that peculiar urge in the middle of the night to gnaw on partner's appendage(s)."

They have also announced the release of a new cure for male pregnancy. The most common side effect - occurring in 100% of cases, actually - is the sudden urge to move out, change names, and change genders.

They excitedly announced that it is soon to release a new drug for that, too, which allows non-surgical sex changing in the privacy of one's own home - and as many times per night as one's nighttime entertainment schedule calls for.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
