  1. The sperm donor thing reminds me of a post at the blog “Autistic Bitch from Hell” from a few years ago. It seems that women who had gotten the jism from a particular repository which specialized in mathematical masturbators and Nobel winners, etc., were having a larger-than-expected number of rockers and flappers among their kids.

    She hasn’t posted in a couple of years or so. The blog may still exist. I’ll try to find the post. As I recall, it was hilarious.
