Re: Not my opinion!
"A man and his son are involved in a terrible car accident."
My version involves a doctor going into the bar of a pub, orders a pint of beer, and says to the barman "See that man in the lounge, that's my son, give him a drink and tell him his father just died".
Padded out a bit more than that.
Everybody else in the story is male but the doctor is never described as "he".
