Reversing gender roles is a classic humor staple.

yeah, but a man walking

in high heels is one thing. seeing a man have to suffer labor is a whole new level of funny. brings to mind the saying: if men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

there was a movie out when i was a kid that i never saw called Rabbit Test and a man was pregnant. i think it was billy crystal.

On the subject of male childbirth in the media ...

I dimly recall a Cosby Show episode in which the men were pregnant after their wives and girlfriends got them pregnant. For some reason, I think Cliff Huxtable gave birth to a large hoagie.

I found it. Here's the TV.com Link summary:

Cliff dreams that the eruption of a volcano in Peru has sent spores into the drinking water and caused men to become pregnant. Cliff, Elvin, Martin and Theo are all pregnant. Theo deals with stares and unkind comments because he is an "unwed father." The pregnant men all become very emotional, while the women act insensitive toward them most of the time. The guys all go into labor at the same time, and suffer excruciating pain. Martin gives birth to a toy sailboat, while Theo has a mini sports car. Cliff has twins: a gigantic hoagie and a bottle of orange soda. After "experiencing" pregnancy and childbirth, Cliff wakes up and tells Clair how much he appreciates her and how much he admires all women.

The DQ ad...

I couldn't say for certain if it's running nationally in the US, but it is running on local stations in Atlantic Canada...

...and yeah, it's funny as hell!

Well Done

I think the humor of it is in that you're expecting, on the mother's turn to dream, to find her dreaming of having a girl... but the train derails in a whole other place. =) It's awesome!
