Speaking of Creative Solutions...

Well, since we have just learned that there is a creative solution that works for everyone, what do you think of this one?

Apparently, a German couple desperately wanted a baby, but tests on the husband showed he was sterile, so he did the only sensible thing: he hired the neighbor to impregnate his wife, paying him $2,500 to take care of the job (because hey, the neighbor sort of looked like him, and had already proved his reproductive prowess by fathering two children of his own, so why not?).

I'm not quite sure how one convinces one's spouse to agree to this sort of arrangement. (And why they didn't just go for the sperm donor option is beyond me). But the wife agreed, and for the next six months spent three nights a week, um, "getting to know", her neighbor.

Unfortunately for this ridiculous couple (but fortunately for all the spirits currently awaiting bodies), after six months of "trying" the neighbor was unable to accomplish the job. Subsequent medical tests showed he was also sterile - a fact which must have come as a great shock to him as he had supposedly fathered his own two children.

Turns out, the kiddies weren't his after all, a fact which his wife was then forced to confess.

Now the "employer" is suing his neighbor for breach of contract, saying the neighbor didn't fulfill his part of the deal. He wants his money back, which is now up to a judge who must certainly be having trouble keeping a straight face in the courtroom.

Honestly, the fact that four people actually agreed to this ickiness is just revolting. I am glad the universe saw fit to afflict these idiots with sterility. If it hadn't, who knows what they else they might be doing to contaminate the gene pool?

Sickening. I agree! How scary that these people have agency - they ought to be locked up! Sounds like you guys are doing great. Do Doug and David ever chat? It's crazy for Doug right now. Is David busy - busier than Tyson's this time of year? Hope you're holding up OK during crunch "tax widow" time. I enjoy all your posts. The variety is great!

Yucky. I was ready for you to say the wife decided he liked the neighbor better and left her husband. Then the husband really would be suing him right? =)

On your poll you didn't give an option of All of the above. I enjoy the variety!
