Two Guys in their 20's sitting on the train talking --
Guy #1: "Ya know, I have 2 lesbians who live across the street from me."
Guy #2: "Nice!!!"
Guy #1: "No, it's not like that. They are both real butch. Man-Haters. In fact, the one dresses just like me, and has my haircut. All I have to do is get a wallet with a chain and I could go to Sisters and score free drinks."
Guy 2: "ha! ha! All you can eat tuna too!"
Guy 1: "I used to wonder which one was the male and which one was the female."
Guy #2: "How can you tell?"
Guy #1: "I just figured whoever takes out the garbage is the man."
Guy #2: "That makes sense."
