You had me at "railroad lines". (Seriously.) Does it get better? Is that possible? I will find out.

I don't get it.

Now you have to make up a similar story for "cissexual". OR I WILL DESTROY YOU.

We got so many railroad lines we finally couldn't figure out what to do with them. So we tore up a bunch of them.

See, I don't think it makes any sense to talk about cissexuality. "Cis" is just being on the same side, so maybe "cissexual" would mean "same sex as me"? But "transsexual" isn't an adjective meaning "opposite sex from me". In the absence of a clear geometrical analogy, the only thing for "cissexual" to mean, as a noun, is something like "still the same sex".

So I'm afraid it's destruction at your hands for me, rone.

I was told a more compact version of this joke in college -- the chem major in question drew an airplane with both wings on the same side of the plane, and the letters "CWA" on the tail. "What does it stand for?" "Cis World Airlines?"

Convergent evolution in action.

Curses. Hold still while i go get my Destruct-o-Ray, will you?

"Cis Sexual" is an old Lou Reed song.

Wouldn't a cissexual be someone who had an operation to convert their genitalia into the same kind of genitalia, but different?

I told you Amtrak was a waste of taxpayer money.
