We’re being colonised by Americans via the sperm bank

By johnboy - 13 August 2006 26

The Canberra Times has a story on inadequate levels of sperm donation in Canberra meaning the sperm has to be bought in from the USA.

Why do they have excess sperm to sell and we do not? That would probably be because they pay donors.

What’s Your opinion?

I’d suggest that the fertility clinics in Canberra need to look inwardly at their problem. I tried a number of times to get set up as a donor (don’t laugh – I’m being serious here!), if only to try to put some balance on the issue of smarter people not breeding, and morons breeding like rabbits (see the story about racial abuse of taxi drivers…).
But the clinics would never return phone calls, or the promised person would never get back to you. After 18 months of on-and-off trying, decided the risk of an accidental addition to the family was too high, and chop-chop.
So they had their chance and (sorry for the pun) blew it!

we don’t need more children on this planet…

I do believe there is a need for sperm storage.

KaneO – we don’t want them multiplying…

Well, it depends. What kind of … supporting material are the offering nowdays?

Should the men of Canberra be providing a free service?

yep..i’d have a wank for my mate next door..

so.. americans are big wankers, huh ?

No-one would believe it if you said Canberra had a shortage of wankers.

A long as we sent the cream of the crop.

Yes – it would almost make sense for Canberra to do a swap with somewhere further away.

Can’t someone just hand a jar out the window to recumbent cyclists or something?

I think that Canberra being so small could put people off. Do you really want to walk down the street, see a kid who looks just like you and have to wonder if you’re the dad?

Ari 5:12 pm 13 Aug 06

Best to ignore the story, it’s obviously a spoof.

I reckon if you got paid to provide sperm everyone would be happy to do so. Except me. One of me is probably enough.

That could lead to a lot of FAT DNA entering the local gene pool…Chicken Gourmet’s profits look set to skyrocket
