What does a man do standing up
a woman do sitting down
and a dog do on three legs?

I have the feeling pissing is too obvious to be the answer.

I don't get it. Why does a woman shake hands sitting down? I almost always stand up... it is the polite thing to do if you can.

Actually... at the time that Joke/Riddle was first introduced... it was most common for Men to stand to shakes hands but it was not expected of women to stand.  In fact, at the time women were considered the weaker sex and were to be seen and often not heard... another reason to stay seated... only to be acknowledged at a man's convienience.

So the Riddle is correct... for the time it came about.
