Life in the U.K. - 5

It seems that there is a sperm shortage in the United Kingdom. But they've taken it in stride and given the US a great compliment.

“The only countries that seem to have enough sperm are those that pay — like the U.S. and Spain"
At least I think it is.

The UK changed the law in 2005 that removed the anonymity of sperm donors, in order to allow children to find their biological father. Due to this, the number of donors has fallen dramatically. In addition, the law limits the number of women who can use one donor to 10.
The United States does not cap sperm donations at all.

There are just too many items in the article to comment on. I'll leave it to the individual to read it and come up with their own jokes.

Needless to say, I do my part and try to volunteer every Saturday night at the pub.
