Holy cultural differences, Batman

This morning at my team meeting, we were asked to introduce ourselves to the two new team members with our names, our roles, and something interesting about ourselves.

The first guy goes, "Hi, I'm Scott, and I like boobies."

I was pretty much dumbstruck.

Other guys did ask him if he meant "man boobs," and when my time came I said, "I like theater," and added "And boobies too!" to get a laugh, but REALLY, this is quite a difference after the US work culture, where people are seriously worried about getting fired or sued for sexual harassment. I was the only woman in a room full of 15 others. I wonder if it will be like this when the new female joins the team?)
