You have to pull harder.

Protip: They would swim faster if they weren't frozen.

I saw a nature special on Oasis HD about elephant conservation in Thailand. They were collecting elephant sperm for genetic testing and this little Thai guy was standing on a chair, hand up the bull elephant's butt, literally punching the elephant in the prostate. Some other crew member was down below with a container.

What a terrible job.

She wouldn't open her mouth?

Since mops are out of the question I imagine a trunk full of elephant sperm at the elephant porno theater would be an idicator of that you have the worst trained elephant job ever.

From South Africa?

The French would have import regulations regarding livestock diseases, not surprising they were picky about it.

Q: What's grey and comes in quarts?

If your sperm wants to go to France, they are probably not the most powerful swimmers anyway.
 
2012-08-15 08:50:50 PM  
I'm not even hungry anymore.
 
2012-08-15 08:51:16 PM  
Does customs provide the means to keep it frozen that entire time or does it thaw out?
 
2012-08-15 08:55:18 PM  
I imagined this the same as confiscated drugs or cash. Confiscated 8 quarts, transferred 4 quarts, moved 2 quarts, returned the 1 quart, etc.

and it takes 6 months for the ATF to approve a Form 4; a single page, two sided tax document.

\Government is inefficient and doesn't do its job properly, more at 11.

Well it's too late now, my dinner party is already ruined.
 
2012-08-15 09:12:39 PM  
Come again ?
 
2012-08-15 09:32:34 PM  
what were they doing, taste testing?

And it never mixes with pig DNA.

Kinda glad I have noscript on. From wikipedia:


Electroejaculation is usually carried out under a general anesthetic. An electric probe is inserted into the rectum adjacent to the prostate. The probe delivers an AC voltage, usually 12-24 volts sine wave at a frequency of 60 Hz, with a current limited to usually 500 mA, although some devices can generate currents of up to 1 A. The probe is activated for 1-2 seconds, referred to as a stimulus cycle. Ejaculation usually occurs after 2-3 stimulus cycles. Care must be taken when using currents greater than 500 mA, as tissue burns may result due to heating of the probe.[1] The stimulus voltage stimulates nearby nerves, resulting in contraction of the pelvic muscles and ejaculation. This procedure is used frequently with large mammals, particularly bulls and some domestic animals, as well as humans who have certain types of paralysis or erectile dysfunction.


They shove a battery up your ass and taze your prostate till you blow your load. Because of the electricity also causing muscles to spasm and move, this generally only used on large males, humans who are paralyzed below the waistline, and extremely rarely, stallions under general anesthesia.

I would pay good money to see someone try to Tase a stallions balls while the horse was awake...

They won't go through the x-ray machine, so each one needs to be searched individually

/must be searching for jizhadis

Jizhadi is now the porno title of the week!

I know it doesn't work this way but ever since reading Fluke and its awkward scene with whale sperm I keep imagining sperm size increases proportionally with the animal thus making whale sperm the size of lab mice or something. Its the freakiest unwanted visual I've ever come up with. Thanks for the reminder!

Electroejaculation, though sounding pretty simple is not something you want undertake as a DIY project.

It's really painful, and you get these burns, and the only ejaculate was from the completely wrong orifice.

Anyway that's what someone told me.
