Hey, redheads. No one wants your sperm.

At least no one outside of Ireland. Sorry.

World's Biggest Sperm Bank Turning Away Redheads
Published September 19, 2011 | The Sun

Redheads are being turned away from the largest sperm bank in the world—because not enough people want children with red hair.

The director of Cryos International, Ole Schou, said that there have been so many donations made in the last few years that now the facility can afford to be picky.

The international sperm bank has been inundated with donations, but the demand for red-haired children isn't soaring like the supply of sperm.

"There are too many redheads in relation to demand. I do not think you chose a redhead, unless the partner—for example, the sterile male—has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads. And that's perhaps not so many, especially in the latter case," said Schou.

Schou went on to say that the only real demand for redheaded semen comes from Ireland, where it sells "like hot cakes".

Cryos have now reached their capacity of 70 liters of semen, approximately 14,000 donations, and there are 600 donors on the waiting list.

Sperm from donors with brown hair and eyes is particularly in demand, because Cryos has many customers in Mediterranean countries.

Historically, red hair was thought to be a mark of moral degeneration and beastly sexual desires.

Scotland has the highest proportion of gingers, affecting 13 percent of the population, but it is estimated that there are somewhere between 6 to 18 million redheads in America.
I don't personally care for the association of "hot cakes" and "sperm."

Eventually people will figure out Gingers are only good to cleanse the pallet after eating sushi.

Re: Hey, redheads. No one wants your sperm.

Where did this hatred of gingers start? Was it from the South Park episode?

^ What?! No way. You never heard the expressions, "Better dead than red" or "Beaten like a red-headed step-child"? I remember both of those from the '70s and '80s, and I'm sure they existed before that.

"Better dead than red" was anti-communist, not anything to do with redheads. I'm not sure about the other phrase.

That's what "they" would have you think...

Speaking of odd things; when did you get the extra 'e'?

It's like staring at a superfluous third nipple.

Re: Hey, redheads. No one wants your sperm.

Nothing revs my engine more than a hot natural redheaded woman.

The problem is that there don't seem to be very many natural redheads out there and most of the natural ones ain't that hot.

Yea. And I'm pretty sure that "loose lips sinks ships" always had something to do with sluts.

I've never had the pleasure of being with a ginger. Reality probably wouldn't live up to the fantasy I have in my head, but there's just something about those gingers man.

Re: Hey, redheads. No one wants your sperm.

I lost my virginity to a redhead. Both times. Also, Sgt Honeylamb is a redhead. So was the last long-term relationship I had. They seem to be my lot in life. haha

Maybe originally, but that's certainly not the way it was used when I was young. It was always used when talking about hair color.

Schou went on to say that the only real demand for redheaded semen comes from Ireland, where it sells "like hot cakes".
Note to self: Do not order the "Irish hot cakes".

Re: Hey, redheads. No one wants your sperm.

The number of women who want redhead sperm is inversely proportional to the number of hot female redheads I want to give my sperm to.

You may want your redheads but you sure didn't want any ginger sperm.
