French sperm

It was reported this week, or maybe last - time flies by so quickly these days - that, as a nation, the sperm count of the French is going down. Leaving aside how on earth
 a) they know and
 b)they care,
 I give you for your delectation and entertainment this offering, courtesy of News Thump, which, as you will gather from its title, is a serious, heavyweight publication aiming to defer to no-one in its quest for the truth.

eg. "The study also discovered that although there was a precipitous fall in French sperm count, the gallic feeling of self-importance was as strong as ever amongst the subjects."

You read it here first, folks!

  1. I reckon something similar was researched about the British male some years ago. I think it was said to be down to pants.

    I'm waiting to hear when the Italians might join the club.

    1. You are right, ZACL, it was the trend towards wearing tight underpants that was blamed. It appears, from the current birth rate that this has now been resolved. ;)

  2. Oh dear, I guess that with the decline in the French sperm count we English (& Welsh) lads will just have to go over there to help them out. It will be like D Day all over again. Ask Keith if he'll be signing up to serve those desperate mademoiselles. Now I finally understand the term "European Union".

    1. I don't know about you, YP but Keith is going nowhere! It will take him till Christmas to get out of the handcuffs and foot shackles anyway...

    1. You're OK, Cro, as you are not French. Your services may well be required in the interests of la belle France!
