I was lying in bed early this morning, listening to the radio, when I heard a news item which also doubled-up as an appeal.
It seems there is an acute shortage of sperm-donors in Britain right now, and sperm is having to be bought in from other countries to meet the need, hence this appeal. Various men were interviewed, and some of them proudly said that the had fathered three or more children already, and were encouraging their male mates to donate as well. This charitable sperm bank is set in Birmingham, one of the most (and possibly unjustifiably) ridiculed cities in England, mainly because of the accent.
One eye opened, and I waited for the best opportunity for my best shot (no pun, etc.) at a schoolboy joke, but I had to wait until the very end.
The woman was asked what this project was called, and she said, "Banking On Birmingham"
I rolled over and went back to sleep, knowing that someone would be bound to get there before me on some form of social network, and I bet it was a Brummie.
