I saw Enormous Sperm open for Run-DMC.

Helluva show.

The "big-sperm paradox" has a mysterious climax. Let's leave it at that.

As a wise man said:
"Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana".

What are they, like an inch long, these sperm? That would be impressive.

One of the scientists here at the home tells me that if fruit flies don't have enormous sperm, they produce agoraphobic fruit flies with larvae that look normal but never crawl out of the egg.
