    Men have nipples for two reasons
    1. They tell you how deep you can go into water if you can't swim
    2. They let you know when your vest isn't on straight.

    Ah...I can actually answer this!
    Adult pigeons produce a nutritious liquid from their crop called 'pigeon milk'. It is fed to baby pigeons and is so nutritious they grow very rapidly and fledge as almost adults before you can say 'pigeon pie'. That is why you don't see baby pigeons!
    Now, why do you say 'Will you sleep with me' when we mean 'will you shag me?'
