the 71-year-old pregnant man

To err is human, but to really screw up, you need a computer.

Last week, 71-year-old John Grady Pippen was admitted to a hospital in Oregon for abdominal pain. After an examination, he was given some pain killers and sent home.

The diagnosis? The discharge paperwork given to Mr. Pippen said, "Based on your visit today, we know that you are pregnant."

The reason for the computer error is unclear. Mr. Pippen is waiting for more information regarding his due date.

computer mistake aside... how is it that he was given this paperwork?
