Lets talk sperm!

It's obvious when you think about it…only I doubt few people have actually thought about it.
There's high-quality sperm and then there's low quality sperm. It's inevitable.

And just as inevitable is the fact that all the men who read this blog are now secretly assuring themselves that, naturally, their sperm would fall (or, more hopefully, be shot lustily) into the 'high-quality' bracket…just as all the men would naturally sit in the 'better-than-average' bracket when it comes to driving ability.
Interestingly, though, the quality of sperm is important, because only high-quality sperm is suitable for artificial insemination, whilst low-quality sperm is only good for the more invasive procedure of intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection where the sperm is injected into the egg, but the egg has to be removed in order for this to happen.
So it is perhaps a worry that here in the UK we have such a shortage of sperm that we are having to import it, and not only that, but we are having to do so from places where the quality of screening of the sperm is not as rigorous as it is here.

My thoughts on this?
Well, I can just imagine the expression of outrage on the faces of the level-headed intellectuals at the BNP when they realise that not only (in their eyes at least) is the UK being over-run by low-cost, low-quality labour from foreign shores, but it's breeding stock is also being impregnated by low-cost, low-quality sperm from foreign shores as well. The worry, of course, is that on realising this, we'll get a sudden rush of 'donations' from them…not necessarily the sort of enhancement we'd want of the gene pool...
