You feelin’ fertile, Myrtle?
Blog Guy, I’m hoping you can help answer a question for me. Where do babies come from?
Er, uh, you should probably ask your parents about that.
Oh. Well, when a a man and a woman love each other very much, they pick up the phone and order a delivery from the Sperm Bike, which pedals over with a gallon of baby-starter.
You mean sort of like the ice cream man?
Sort of, if the ice cream was stored in liquid nitrogen-cooled vacuum containers and delivered by a medical technician on a bike.
Where do these medical technicians get the baby-starter, anyway?
Thanks, Blog Guy. Do you suppose anybody ever shouts rude stuff at guys pedaling a gigantic sperm bike through town?
Rude stuff? You mean like, “Hey, it’s Speedy Seedy!” or “Look, it’s the Semen Demon!” or “Hello, Sperminator!” Nah, I doubt it, most people are more sensitive than I am..
