BBC News [SIZE="4"]'Pregnant' man fined in SA court[/SIZE]

A South African man has been fined $140 for taking a week off work, telling his employers he was pregnant.

Charles Sibindana, 27, stole a certificate from a clinic during his pregnant girlfriend's checkup, a court near Johannesburg heard.

He then added his own details to the note and submitted it and took seven days off work, seemingly unaware that only women consult gynaecologists.

His employers became suspicious and investigated the matter.

On passing sentence Magistrate Bruno Van Eeden warned Mr Sibindana "not to walk around faking sick letters from gynaecologists" as if he was pregnant, the South African Press Association news agency reported.

I may try this one, see if it can get me off work :p

Gee...don't be mean to the guy for taking on feminine characteristics. It is nice to see more feminized guys in the work place. :) I'm just kidding of course.

¡Mi padre esta embarazada! (Translation: My father is pregnant!)

You never know. It is the 21st century.

And, no, my father isn't really pregnant. I just like the false cognitive embarazada.
