Haha, Giggity. I would have hired you for saying that! :D good luck in the next job interview.
If he doesn't know how to laugh off a small, hilarious, harmless mistake , you might not want him as a boss. But that is so funny!!
I know at my company, we have constant sexual and other harassment training, and that joke wouldn't fly. He may find it funny, but his job as a manager requires he do something about situations like that or face discipline himself. If a person is willing to do inappropriate jokes on an interview, they'll likely do them in the work place also. The manager didn't really have a choice there, in good conscience.
Companies tend to have broader definitions, Just it being sexual on nature can be offensive to some. To meet sexual harassment doesn't mean you have to be coming on to someone, they could just be making others uncomfortable. A few years ago I worked in a closed room with large glass windows and an intersection between two major sections of the building. We had many attractive women passing by, so some of the guys made a little joke of making a "bow chicka wow wow" noise when someone hot walked by, and a sorta failure sound when the opposite occurred. They were in a closed room, so the women couldn't hear, and no one was coming on to anyone. Still, HR got involved, interviewed most of the room, and in the end, two participants got fired. If it makes a coworker uncomfortable, it can be harassment.
Next time, try to keep it reel if you want the job Hook, Line and Sinker.
