Cocktails, anyone?

Are you in the market for FROZEN SPERM?

No, seriously. advertises themselves as "The world's first first celebrity sperm donor service." So I'm guessing this is about artificial insemination, but...

I don't know.  Perhaps I'm far too judgmental, but it all seems rather desperate to me.  It raises so many questions too.  Like, presumably it is very expensive, and donors and "consumers" are screened extensively, but couldn't there be some really unfortunately mismatches?

For example, what if sperm from some genius rocket scientist ends up in some nouveau riche lottery winning dullard?  My guess is the child ends up a dullard too, but perhaps tortured by all the added expectations on him/her of coming from special sperm. 

Ugh.... I just can't.
