so a guy walks into work

I should tell you here that ben works with a lot of mathematicians and physicists. okay, stage set. so yesterday ben was at work and it happened to be two people's birthday. his boss says,

d: wow! it's so funny! i mean what is the probability that 2 people out of 14 would have the same birthday?!?!? hahaha
the entire office: 22%!

the funny thing is they didn't even realize how hilarious it was. they were just answering a probability. i've always secretly scoffed at the women who wear those 'i heart nerds' t-shirts, but now i kinda want one.
