I have Facebook fan Dan McCulley to thank for pointing me to this article -- though this kind of story is the least satisfying to write about. When a story is already absurd, there's not much I can do to improve it. It's easy to write, but I enjoy the challenge of finding the absurdity in stories where it isn't so obvious. But this story is too damn funny to ignore.
Of all the remarkable aspects of this story, the way the wives went along with it is noteworthy. I can understand a woman being desperate to get pregnant, but the fact that the donor dude's wife went along with it too is surprising. I guess they needed the money. I wonder if my wife would agree to stud me out to a neighbor? The situation has never arisen. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. I'm open to considering proposals.
