In the animal kingdom, a peacock struts his stuff trying to outdo other peacocks in getting the peahen's attention. In our world, competitiveness takes on a whole other meaning.
Humans have been known to have delusions of grandeur and do the same as peacocks when in the company of those they want to impress, creating a display of wealth and importance just to instill a sense of envy in another.
The locker room is where a lot of banter occurs, stripped naked with their souls exposed, and some men use this time to try to one-up each other in the "I'm better than you" stakes.
The joke below is a typical example with an unexpected twist at the end. Enjoy!
Several men are in the locker room of a golf club when a mobile phone on a bench rings. One of them engages the hands-free speaker-function and begins to talk while putting on his golf shoes.
Everyone else in the room eavesdrops on the conversation while pretending to be doing other things.
WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $500. Is it okay if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "Oh, thanks so very much. I also stopped by the Mercedes garage this morning and saw the new models. There was one I really, really liked."
MAN: "How much?"
MAN: "OK, but for that price, I want it with all the optional extras."
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing. The house we wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $1,5M."
MAN: "Well then, go ahead and make them an offer, but no more than $1,250,000."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you!"
MAN: "Bye, I love you, too."
The man hangs up.
By that time, the locker room is absolutely quiet. All the other men are looking at him in absolute astonishment. Then he looks up from tying his laces, smiles, and asks:
"Anyone know whose phone this is?"
