Things used to be so simple for men. Their primary role in life was to parallel park the car for us, open jars, reach for things on high shelves and dispense sperm at the convenient time.
At a squeeze, us ladies could do most of these things for ourselves but the access to sperm was always going to be tricky. Until now.
A team of British scientists have created human sperm using embryonic stem cells, which means that the main role of men has now been made redundant.
Before the male of the species get all depressed and question the point of their existence, we need to find a role that is exclusively male. Something that women or machines can't do although i am struggling to think of when a need to pee standing up will be of any use to society.
Their greater strength does come in handy to carry those bags when we have bought more than we can manage and their ability to reverse into parking spaces without having to visit a panel beater afterwards is very useful.
I'm sure that if we think hard enough and long enough we could come up with something only a man can do but while we do that, would you mind stirring my coffee for me.
Hang about...i think i've cracked it.
