World's Largest Sperm Bank Says No To Redheads

Cryos, a Danish network of international sperm banks and the largest one of its kind, has officially stopped taking sperm from redheaded guys. Despite an overall increase in donations, the demand for ginger sperm just isn’t that high. Sorry, gingers.

Essentially, no one loves redheads sterile couples by and large don’t want to make redhead babies. Cryos director Ole Schou even went on record to state that, unless a woman’s partner was a ginger or she had a preference for red hair, he didn’t see many people choosing red hair over other hair types. In fact, the only country where the specimens were running off the shelves was Ireland.

I just wonder how other hair colours factor into the mix. Platinum blonde can’t be doing that much better can it? [Telegraph via Village Voice]
