Sperm Might Fly Faster on Beverly Blvd.

Sperm Flies Faster on Beverly
BLATANTLY SUGGESTIVE HEADLINE replaces crudely clinical headline, "Oscars, traffic and a cup of sperm," in today's Los Angeles Times.

The story: a hapless fertility patient tries to get across LA with a warm specimen. From Atwater Village to Beverly Hills, she attempts Hollywood Blvd. during, of all times, Oscar week.
"You don't appreciate how easily sperm travels through a vagina until you try to drive it across Los Angeles during Oscar week."

7:54am - "I pull out of our driveway in Atwater Village... Half a mile of Hollywood Boulevard is blocked for the construction of a celebrity bridge..."

8:40am - "Landlocked in front of the Rock 'n' Roll Ralphs..."

8:52am - "I start to cry..."

9:01am - "Tear down a side street. Dead end..."
