(One person will understand this post. If you are not that person, feel free to go away. The sooner, the better.)
I have a (female) blogger friend who describes sperm as ‘bleachy’ and, not being a woman prone to sputtering on chlorination, she chooses not to swallow any. Ever.
She and I have tried (in vain) to explain the concept of bleachy sperm to a mutual (male) bloggy buddy, but he’s convinced we’ve been exposed (heh) to the wrong types of guys. Namely, the ones who work at the Clorox plant.
Despite the fact that dull whites are one of those pesky annoyances that go along with doing laundry, I do not use Clorox. (Nor do I use the gentlemen who work at the Clorox plant.) So his argument is moot.
However, I think between the two of them (‘them’ being my bloggy buddies), the current state of the human condition can (maybe, possibly, perhaps) be explained.
Let’s pretend for a moment that the human gene pool is a bit chlorinated. (If your imagination needs fodder, I invite you to stroll your local Wal-Mart at noon on a Saturday and examine the Wal-Martians. You won’t have to pretend. You’ll simply recognize said chlorination as fact.) How do you suppose it got that way?
But what, you are wondering, is bleachy sperm, Feve?
It’s sperm that smells like bleach, of course.
Simple biology (or chemistry or just plain cause-and-effect) dictates that what goes in the body affects what comes out. And what comes out is bodily fluids. All kinds of bodily fluids.
Urine, for example, is not supposed to be dark yellow. If you are drinking enough water and throwing other healthy sustenance down your gullet, it should be almost clear. Likewise should sweat. And neither should be particularly smelly. That said: Ever smelled the sweat of a man playing basketball the morning after a beer bender? *Shudder* Not exactly bleachy… But neither is it a garden of roses. So: good stuff in, good stuff out; garbage in, garbage out. Toxins (excess sugar, caffeine, alcohol, etc.) in, toxins out.
If the toxins out come (heh) in the form of bleachy sperm and subsequently become toxins in (as in, in utero), I submit (heh) to you that the result is (once again) toxins out (i.e., future Wal-Martians of the world).
Which brings us back to our (oh-so-hard-to-believe) supposition that maybe (just maaaayyyybe) the human gene pool is slightly (only 90%) chlorinated.
And it’s all the fault of bleachy sperm.
I admit that, as a theory, it might need a little work. But I think my hypothesis is sound. Perhaps I should experiment…
Besides, someone needs to figure these things out. Might as well be me! 😀
