Straight Fokkers

Robert de Niro and Ben Stiller managed two pretty successful comedies based in part on juvenile humor stemming from the fact that Stiller's character's surname was Fokker.

Fokker is a Dutch name (the Red Baron flew a Fokker biplane). The Dutch word fokker means "breeder," and the corresponding verb is fokken. Example: Ik fok honden means "I breed dogs."

A few years back, it was hip in some circles to refer to heterosexuals as "breeders."

Put these disparate facts together and you realize that we heteros are just a bunch of straight fokkers.
