A bit risque, but completely non political laugh here...

The title links to section seven of a ten part series from Popular Science on the worst jobs in science. Section seven details the job of being a semen washer. These are the people in the sperm banks around the nation who use centrifuge machines to separate the samples to collect the sperm of the various donors.
"The hardest part is explaining it to friends," [Diana] Schillinger [the Los Angeles lab manager at the country's largest sperm bank, California Cryobank] says. "But we do have stories." Like what? "Like the donor who was in the room for the longest time. We had a big discussion about who was going to check on him. Turns out he thought he had to fill up the entire specimen cup."

I choose to let this alone for the sanity of those who may read this blog... Insert your own joke in the comments.
