Twitterverse snickers at apt byline on Reuters article about French men’s sperm

Yes, really. Somewhere in the Reuters newsroom, an assignment editor is doing his best Beavis and Butthead imitation.

Reuters medical journalist Andrew Seaman was among the first to mock his own byline on the “French men not producing as much sperm” article.

Other Twitter users couldn’t resist joining the fun. Because really, who among us doesn’t have an inner 12-year-old boy?

      The “cheese-eating surrender monkeys” is unfair. The French have done their share of a**-kicking historically. Napoleon was on-track to take over the continent for a while, a French *girl* kicked England out.

      Recently . . . yeah, they haven’t been doing so well, but liberalism has sissified Europe in general. They’ve basically outsourced their national defense to us and then they complain about whatever we do with our military. Let’s hope we escape Europe’s fate, because if we don’t, we may well be looking at an Islamo-fascist planet.

        And the Chinese will be saying the same things about us as we do of the French. Maybe they already do.

        That doesn’t violate the French rule of warfare – The French are only successful when not led by a Frenchman.

    Poor Andrew. At least you didn’t join the Navy. Or start a fertility clinic.

      Reminds me of when I was in the Navy. We had an Ensign Gilligan aboard.
