    Sperm bank turns down redheads

    The world's largest sperm bank has started turning down redheaded donors because there is too little demand for their sperm.

    Ole Schou, Cryos's director, said that there had been a surge in donations in recent years, allowing the facility to become much more picky about its donors.

    "There are too many redheads in relation to demand," he told told Danish newspaper Ekstrabladet. "I do not think you chose a redhead, unless the partner - for example, the sterile male - has red hair, or because the lone woman has a preference for redheads. And that's perhaps not so many, especially in the latter case."

    Mr Schou said the only reliable demand for sperm from redheaded donors from Ireland, where he said it sold “like hot cakes”.

    Cryos’s stores have now reached their peak capacity of 70 litres of semen, and Mr Schou has a waiting list of 600 donors.

    He said sperm from donors with brown hair and brown eyes was particularly in demand, because of the bank’s large customer base in Spain, Italy and Greece.

    Indian sperm was also hard to find, he said, because India does not allow sperm or eggs to be exported, causing a problem for childless international Indians.

    Cryos pays donors up to $500 (£316), and sends its semen to over 65 countries worldwide.

    Irish bakeries must be strange places. Time to think twice about ordering a cream cake from an Irish baker.

    "Childless International Indians"?

    Can't say I've ever met any but if there are some? there's nothing to stop them going to India for a quick insemination.

    The cakes-sperm association doesn't really sit well with me. I always had reservations about "Mr Kiplings" produce a few years back.

    Not bad.

    £20000 if they needed a separate spillage for each country.

    Fair enough. I presume they screen out all genetic disorders.
